Layers of sweet berries and home-made brown-sugar oats makes a wonderful dessert. Enjoy on Independence Day or at any other festive summer gathering.
Ingredients

fresh blueberries

2 cup(s)

sugar

2 Tbsp, divided

strawberries

2 cup(s), hulled and quartered

uncooked old fashioned oats

½ cup(s)

unpacked brown sugar

2 Tbsp

light butter

2 Tbsp, melted

lite whipped topping

½ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a small bowl, toss blueberries with 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar; set aside. In another small bowl, toss strawberries with remaining tablespoon of granulated sugar; set aside.
  3. In a third small bowl, stir together oats, brown sugar and butter. Spread mixture in a single layer on a sheet pan; bake, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
  4. Spread blueberries and strawberries in an 8 x 8-inch glass dish, alternating to create stripes. (Or prepare in individual serving bowls like we did here.) Sprinkle with oat topping, decorate with whipped topping and serve. Yields 8 servings.
Notes
Retain the crispness of the oat topping by sprinkling it on the fruit just before serving.
