Cherry and Apple Crumble
Using pie filling instead of fresh fruit takes most of the work out of this popular dessert. If you don't want to combine the two flavors, you can substitute one (20-ounce) can of cherry, apple, or your own favorite fruit pie filling.
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30–40 minutes
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 6
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ stick butter, softened
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 cup cherry pie filling
- 1 cup apple pie filling
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9″ × 9″ pan.
Place the flour in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in the ground cinnamon. Cut the butter into the bowl, then use your fingers to combine the flour and butter until it has a crumb-like texture. Stir in the brown sugar, again using your fingers to mix it in.
Put the two pie fillings into the bottom of the pan, stirring to combine.
Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the pie filling
Bake the crumble at 350°F for 30 minutes, or until the top is browned and crisp and the filling is bubbling. Place on a wire rack to cool for about 20 minutes before serving.
Crisp or Crumble?
Both of these desserts consist of fruit that is topped with a crumb coating and baked. However, while flour is the main ingredient in a crumble topping, crisp toppings usually include oats.
