Copied this from Pioneer Woman's website. I made it tonight and oohh man.. good. It WILL give you a sugar rush though! Suitable for any fruits that bake well. If its a watery fruit like raspberries tend to be when they've been frozen, I'd let them drain a little bit first.

Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 30 Minutes | Difficulty: Easy | Servings: 8


Ingredients
■2- cups Raspberries
■1 Tablespoon (Heaping) Corn Starch
■⅔ cups Sugar ( I scaled this back to 1/2 cup, she originally did 2/3)
■1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
■1 cup All-purpose Flour
■ cups Sugar
■ cups Brown Sugar
■⅓ cups Oats
■ cups Pecans, Chopped
■Dash Of Salt
■ sticks Butter, Cut Into Small Pieces
■Whipped Cream Or Vanilla Ice Cream, For Serving
Preparation Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine (rinsed) raspberries, corn starch, 2/3 cups sugar, and vanilla. Stir and set aside.

In a separate bowl (or food processor) combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar, brown sugar, oats, pecans, dash of salt, and butter pieces. Cut together with a pastry cutter (or pulse in food processor) until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Add berry mixture to a small baking dish or pie pan. Sprinkle topping mixture all over the top. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until topping is golden brown.

Allow to sit for ten minutes before serving.




I nixed the nuts and used a mix of apples and raspberries. I think next time I will use less vanilla or no vanilla at all and definitely a little less sugar! Overall it was very good though!

That's a good old English Crumble recipe with a few extra tasty bits thrown in. I actually made exactly the same thing as you with apples and raspberries 2 weekends ago. You clearly have great taste!

My recipe is virtually the same but I go by weight though and use half fat and half sugar to flour. I also use demerara sugar as it' makes it crunchier.

It does look a little heavy on the sugar in the fruit and I've never put vanilla in mine.

You can use the topping with ANY fruit underneath whether it's fresh, canned or frozen. It's works well with cling peaches or rhubarb and strawberries together is my absolute favorite!

Mmmm, I might need to make this tonight - I've got some slightly old apples in the fridge and some frozen raspberries.

Yum that sounds really good. You had me at ice cream.

I'm making peanut butter balls soon, I'll post the recipe later. It's one of those old school ones that my grandmother wrote and I'm sure that little recipe card is older than me. Let's just say I really cherish that little piece of paper!

Oh I definitely think I'm cutting the sugar wayyyy down next time. It did make a nice crunchy topping with the oats. I'm thinking of trying it with pears soon, I have a few in the fridge that I'm just not interested in otherwise.
