Dan doesn’t like cooked fruit – so he doesn’t count…but everyone else seemed to love this dessert. I think I was the only one licking my plate at the end, but everyone said it was tasty. and it was.
This “crumble” is different from a normal fruit pie for several reasons – the crumble topping is obviously different than a lattice top pie… but that’s not all. The preparation calls for cooking some of the fruit in sugar before adding it to the rest of the fresh fruit – this releases the juices early so that the pie doesn’t turn into fruity soup when cooked, which has happened to me wayyy too many times.
This pie is great – it’s sweet, it’s fun, it’s fairly easy…and it uses the best of summer ingredients. Go for it before blueberries go back out of season. Have some people over, kick your feet up, and eat “crumble.”
