Let your market and your pantry guide you when making this adaptable dessert recipe. Instead of plums, you could try ripe peaches, and instead of blackberries, use blueberries or raspberries. Don't care for cardamom? Substitute the same amount of cinnamon. Assembling the crisp is super-easy; all you have to do is sprinkle the oat, brown sugar, and pistachio crumble over the fruit and spice mixture and let it bake away in the oven until the crumble is beautifully golden brown and the fruit is bubbling. You'll also find yourself enjoying the leftover crisp for breakfast or a quick, hearty snack on the go.
