Recipe Fridays: Apple-Blackberry Crumble

This is a fairly easy dessert to whip up. And lighter than a cake. Pick your fruit filling (berries, plums, peaches, even pineapple) and your nut (walnut, almond, pistachio, pecan) and get baking! I made a few of these this week--and this turned out to be tasty:

Crumble topping:
1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup walnuts, chopped
7 tablespoons of butter, softened
pinch of salt

Mix the oats, flour, brown sugar, and salt together. Then add the nuts. Next, mix in the softened butter with your hands until everything is evenly moistened. Set aside.

Fruit filling:
3 lbs apples, peeled and cut into chunks
2 cups blackberries
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt

Mix all filling ingredients together in a bowl. Transfer the filling into a buttered 2 quart baking dish (or 8x8). Dot the top with 2 tablespoons of cut-up cold butter. Sprinkle crumble mixture on top of fruit. Bake until golden (40-45 minutes) at 375 degrees. Let it sit 10 minutes before serving.
