Now that it’s high fruit season, we thought you’d appreciate a reminder of the simple pleasure of a fruit crumble.
The joy our guests had in indulging in this dessert made us feel slightly guilty. We simply had a surplus of peaches and apples. We even had the kids mix the topping.
6 pieces of fruit (we used 3 apples, 3 peaches but you can also use pears, etc.)
1 1/2 cups flour
12 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup of granulated sugar
Cut fruit into 1″ sections or slices. Line buttered 9″ square pan with fruit slices. Combine flour, butter (cold, not room temperature), sugar in bowl. Combine by grinding with fingertips until consistency of coarse sand (or slightly lumpy). Sprinkle flour mixture on top of fruit and place into a 350F oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown on top.
