Cherry Berry Crumble ~

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

If you're looking for something easy for one of your Thanksgiving desserts, try this Crumble Cherry Berry! It is a delicious mix of berries, cherries, and apples topped with sweet and crunchy streusel. Of course, it's from King Arthur Flour's treasury of recipes. You should know by now that when I'm in doubt about doing a blog at all, I put on a recipe. I am still writing a novel, which has to have 50,000 words by November 30. I have 30,057 and counting. So here is a scrumptious recipe for you to try. Enjoy!

Cherry Berry Crumble
Yield: 4 servings

3/4 cup (5 1/4 ounces) sugar
1 tablespoon (3/8 ounch) instant ClearJel
3 cups (15 ounces) fresh or frozen raspberries or blackberries or strawberries (a mixture is great)
3 cups peeled, diced apples
1 cup (5 ounces) dried cherries
2 tablespoons (1 3/8 ounces) cherry concentrate

1 1/2 cups (3 1/2 ounces (old fashioned rolled oats or quick-cooking oats)
1 cup (7 1/2 ounces) light brown sugar
3/4 cup (3 ounces) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
7 tablespoons (3 1/2 ounces) melted butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Blend the sugar and instant ClearJel. Add the fruit and cherry concentrate and stir until combined. Divide among four 2-cup baking dishes. There will be about 1 1/2 cups filling per dish. Set aside.

To make the topping, combine the oats, sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Pour in the butter-mix till the mixture is crumbly.

Divide the topping among the four dishes of berry filling. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes for fresh berries, 40 to 45 minutes for frozen berries, until the topping is lightly browned and the filling is bubbly.

Remove from the oven, and cool at least 15 minutes before serving. Top with ice cream or whipped topping, if desired.

Everyone loves fruit, especially berries, so give the family one more special berry dessert!
