Mixed Berry Crumble……….

 It was a beautiful sunny day and I was outside  picking berries. Ohhh, that is just not true at all.  Truth is, I picked up a bag of frozen mixed berries from the grocery store. But I wish I was picking my own berries. The problem is, I would probably be eating them as quick as I was picking. I love berries……blue berries, blackberries, boysenberries, strawberries, raspberries, huckleberries……I love them all!

I love to make homemade ice cream with berries, or to eat them just plain……or slightly sugared on top of vanilla ice cream. Dammit, I love berries. This time, I decided to make a berry crumble. I had some frozen peaches on hand, so I threw those in there too. Peaches and berries go really well together. Did you know? If you make this, you’ll find out!

Mixed Berry Crumble

Preheat oven to 350.

Filling:
4 cups of frozen mixed berries
1  tsp lemon juice
1 Tblsp flour (2 Tblsp if you like a thicker filling)
1/2 cup sugar

In a bowl, toss together the berries, lemon juice, flour and sugar. Dump the mixture into a buttered 9×9 baking dish. Prepare the topping, below:

Crumb Topping:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 stick of butter (1/2 cup) cut into cubes
1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)

In a bowl, mix together the flour, oats, sugars and cinnamon. Add the butter cubes and with your fingers, smoosh the butter and dry ingredients together until it’s all crumbly. Sprinkle the topping all over the fruit mixture. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, until your fruit is bubbling hot.
Serve with a big ol scoop of ice cream on the side. M-mmm-mm

You can also do this in individual baking dishes, so that everyone gets their very own dessert and they don’t have to share!
