Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: min


  • 1/3 cup plain Greek-style nonfat yogurt
  • 1/3 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
  • Salt to taste
  • Cooking Directions

    Heat the oven to 375°F. Coat a 9-inch square casserole or baking pan with cooking spray.

    In a large bowl, mix the butter, brown sugar, ginger, lemon juice, cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, nutmeg, salt, and cornstarch. Add the apples, peaches, and cherries, then toss to coat.

    Transfer the fruit, using a rubber spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl, to the prepared pan. Set aside.

    In a food processor, combine the cookie dough and oats. Pulse several times, or until the mixture resembles coarse, wet sand. Sprinkle the mixture over the fruit.

    Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the topping is lightly browned and the fruit bubbles. Cool slightly before serving.

    In a medium bowl, whisk together the strained or Greek-style yogurt and the rest of the ingredients.
