Delicious Mixed Berry Crumble

I just can't wait for Spring... I think that's why I made a crumble last night.   My enthusiasm for everything spring just cannot be contained... remember you can substitute mixed berries for peaches, blackberries or even rhubarb and strawberries!   Enjoy!

Mixed Berry Crumble

Ingredients - Sugar Crust
  • 2 C flour
  • 1 C powder sugar
  • 12 T cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 2 eggs
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.   In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, butter and salt and process 20 seconds or until it looks like oatmeal.   Add eggs, one at a time, until the dough holds together.   Press 3/4 of mixture into a pan and bake blind (cover dough in tin foil and then cover with beans or pastry weights) for 18 minutes (reserve remaining 1/4 dough for topping).   Cool

Ingredients - Mixed Berries and Topping
  • large bag frozen mixed berries or any other type of fruit, thawed
  • 1/4 remaining crust dough
  • 1 C oatmeal
  • 1/2 C brown sugar

In a small bowl, combine remaining dough, oatmeal and brown sugar and mix with your hands until course to make crumble.   Put thawed berries on top of baked crust, followed by the "crumble" and bake for 30 - 35 minutes until top is golden brown and juices are bubbling.   Cool a little before serving... You must serve with ice cream while warm!
