IT CANNOT POSSIBLY BE SEPTEMBER! How did that happen?? While everyone is bracing themselves for the back-to-school time crunch, I’m hoping things will slow down just a bit as W starts kindergarten (tomorrow!) and August upends itself into September. September!!
Can I let the pictures do the talking today? Isn’t a picture worth a thousand words? Here’s two thousand for ya.
And really – what more is there to say? I’m a fan of the crumble, but am always after the big, crunchy bits on top – more so than the crumby crumbs, anyway. So I decided to come up with a big-crumb crumble – all big, sweet, crunchy rubble, and lots of it. It looks a bit like a cobbler, but doesn’t have that biscuit quality – it’s more like a crunchy oatmeal cookie baked over juicy fruit.
You could do this with any fruit in season, of course. Right now it’s peaches. I added a frozen baggie of chopped rhubarb from the freezer (I’m determined to not let it see next spring) but raspberries or blackberries would do just as well – or plums, or apricots, or nothing at all but peaches.
P.S. I also made Baby Vanilla Plum Cakes on the weekend. I forgot to tell you.
You can find the recipe here.
