Rooting around in my freezer the other day, I found a bunch of partial bags of frozen fruit...along with some pie dough. I love freezer finds, don't you? I even found the crumble topping in the freezer for the dessert. I just added a little bit more to it to make sure I had enough to cover the pie. The outcome of these finds was this delicious fruity dessert. The one thing I did NOT find was vanilla ice cream, though...so we made due with whipped cream. I think I should really inspect my freezer more often...who knows what's waiting for me!
Mixed Fruit Crumble
2 cups frozen mixed fruit – I used a mixture of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and peaches
1 pie crust for a 9-inch pie pan
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
½ cup oatmeal – pulsed in the food processor
¼ - 1/3 cup brown sugar
¼ cup chopped pecans
¼ cup cold butter
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix sugar and cornstarch together and pour over fruit. Toss well and set aside.
Roll out pie dough to fit in the pie pan. Seal and crimp edges. Pour sugared fruit into pie shell.
oatmeal, brown sugar, nuts and butter into a medium sized bowl. Blend
with pastry blender or fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over fruit.
Bake crumble for about 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown and mixture is bubbly.
