fruit crumble

Fruit crum
We had a dinner party this week and for dessert I served a fruit crumble.  What I like about this is that everybody gets their own.  Years ago I bought a slew of individual souffle dishes and have found a million uses for them.  The fruit crumble is perfect. 

I made 16 of them but this recipe below is for 8.  Preheat the oven to 350.

1 box blueberries

1 box raspberries

1 box of strawberries, sliced in 1/4's

2 stalks rhubarb sliced like celery

1/4 cup flour

3/4 cup sugar

Mix all of this together and let sit.

1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup sliced almong

Mix the butter with your hands until it is very soft and mushy.  Add the light brown sugar and mix thoroughly.  I literally used a wooden spoon and my fingers.  Add the flour, mix.  Add the oats and almonds, mix. 

Put the fruit mixture into each individual souffle dish.  Put the crumble over the top.  I set them all on a cookie sheet and in the oven and let it bake for about 25 minutes or until browned.

Serve hot or at room temperature with a little whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on top, of course.
