Easy as (or easier than) Pie!

October 8, 2012

When you have a craving for something like…pie, or a crisp, or a cobbler, but need it quick or are limited to only a few pieces of fruit on the counter, you have to get creative. With the late summer stone fruits everywhere, this dish works equally well with all of them, peaches, nectarines, plums…try them all. Today I had only two lonely nectarines and a taste for something comfortable. So I simply split them, lined them in a glass baking dish, sprinkled each with a little cinnamon, a squeeze of lemon juice, a good pinch of brown sugar. Then a quick crumble ( by hand, don’t pull out that processor) of a couple graham crackers and a drizzle of 1 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter. Pop them into a preheated 325 oven for 20 mins or so….the topping should be golden and the fruit tender when tested with the tip of a knife. That’s it! Simple, quiet and done! Eat them warm with a scoop of ice cream or room temp on their own.

    Yum indeed. I’m waiting for my next bag of heirlooms to show up so I can do the same. Gotta love the folks growing all of those tomatoes.Speaking of which…try this recipe swapping in tomatoes and a savory crumb and parmesan top…eh?
