Blueberry Crumble

23 Aug

Recipe adapted from Bon Appetit

2 pounds fresh blueberries
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup plus 1/3 cup sugar
Large pinch of salt
6 tablespoons chilled, unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
1/2 cup organic rolled oats
1/3 cup sliced almonds
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Vanilla ice cream

Makes 6 servings.

1. Combine the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt in a medium bowl; whisk to blend. Add the butter. Rub the butter in with your fingertips until the mixture sticks together in clumps. Mix in the oats, nuts, and vanilla extract.
2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the 1/3 cup sugar in a large bowl. Add the blueberries to the bowl and toss until they are evenly coated in the sugar.
3. Pour the berry filling into an 11x7x2-inch baking dish. Sprinkle the oat topping evenly over the fruit. Bake the crumble until the filling bubbles thickly and the topping is crisp, about 45 minutes. After removing from the oven, allow the crumble to cool for 15 minutes. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Incredibly easy and delicious, fruit crumbles are my ultimate go-to desserts. With its combination of crisp, butter-specked topping, soft, naturally-sweet blueberries, and soothing vanilla ice cream, this delectable blueberry variety serves as the perfect end to a summer barbecue. You can substitute blueberries for various seasonal fruits such as apricots, peaches, or nectarines. This classic dessert will surely impress all your dinner guests, encouraging them to return for seconds (or sometimes thirds, in my case!).
