An easy Patriotic Crumble recipe for summertime berries with the colors perfect for and patriotic setting.
Fresh fruit is everywhere right now and what better way to use up a lot of it is to bake a Patriotic Crumble. Its such an easy recipe and everyone loves it. To make it patriotic, just use red and blue fruit and serve with vanilla ice cream.
I used raspberries and blueberries, but I have used peaches and blueberries or whatever fruit you have works well in this crumble bake. I have used frozen and fresh with no problems.
The first time I made this I was afraid Mr. G wouldn’t like it because of all the fruit, but he loved it. Could have been because I served it with ice cream. Nothing better then cold vanilla ice cream served with warm fruit.
The crumble topping works best if you use a pastry tool and not your fingers. Tried that once but my warm fingers melted the butter too much and I had a mess. Do make sure the butter is ice cold because it crumbles better while making the topping.
