Crumble Elevation

This is an adaptation of the ‘Fall Fruit Crumble’ recipe featured recently on Gourmet.com.  I almost made this last week, but made a pear tart instead.  Compared to that – this felt like a break!

I used the four fall fruits that I had around the kitchen and were on the verge of expiration.  The tart apples nicely countered the sweetness of the figs and plums.  I think i could have used just 1 t lemon juice.

Fruit Filling:

  • 3 tart apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2″ pieces
  • 5 Italian plums, pitted and cut into 1/2″ pieces
  • 6 black figs, quartered
  • 1 Bosc pear (leftover from my pear tart experiment), peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2″ pieces
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 1 1/2 T cornstarch
  • 3/4 t vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 t lemon juice

Topping:

  • 1 C rolled oats
  • 1/2 C all purpose flour
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 4 T butter, softened
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 425F and mix together cut fruits, 1/2 C sugar, vanilla, and cornstarch in a baking dish.
  2. In a small bowl, combine all the dry topping ingredients, then use your fingers to blend in the butter until the mixture resembles a coarse meal.
  3. Bake for 20-30 min (depending on your oven – mine took closer to 30), or until fruit is bubbling and topping turning golden brown.
