Mixed Berry Graham Cracker Crumble

My sister, Cameron, is the cobbler/crumble queen and I hope she will follow this post with her recipes.  We may have to wait until the Spring when the blueberry bushes explode and she can make a ridiculously delicious blueberry crumble.

Until then, here is my version which adds a decadent graham cracker crust (I am moving in the next month and will be cleaning out my cabinets!)  You can always skip this step and butter a pan before you put in the berries.

What to buy:

  • bag of mixed, frozen berries (or if using fresh, about 3 cups)
  • graham cracker crumbs
  • butter
  • 2/3 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

What to do:

  • prepare graham cracker crust as directed by the box (or you could buy one) and bake at 350 for 10 min to allow crust to set
  • combine berries with white sugar, vanilla and lemon juice
  • in a separate bowl, combine oats, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. add in 1/2 stick of butter cut into chunks and combine until small pea size crumbles form
  • add berries graham cracker crust and top with crumble topping
  • bake for 35-40 minutes at 350
  • topping will seem to be loose, but it will firm up when cool
  • serve with ice cream or whipped cream
