Marie’s Star Fruit Crisp Dessert

Healthy and decadent, this dessert is a Blue Osa original. The exotict star fruit is topped by  a sweet, yet savory, crumble and a tangy cream.  We are blessed at Blue Osa to have 3 large star fruit or carambola (in Spanish) tree that bears its fruits 4 times a year.
