Strawberry Blueberry Crumble, a.k.a. the lazy man’s pie, a.k.a. my favorite dessert, a.k.a. strawberries and blueberries baked with a delicious, crunchy topping of sugar, flour, butter and almonds!
Hi, you guys! Happy Monday!
I feel like I ran a marathon. I mentioned a little birthday party (35+ guests) we were having for our 2-year old yesterday… We had the best time! Friends, food, laughter, drinks, screaming kids… life is good. BUT this Mama is tiiiiiiiired! I feel old.
Hey, remember when weekends were about sleeping-in until, like, noon? THAT was zee life! You’d feel all recharged, ready to tackle the week. Maybe I’ll go to bed at 7 tonight, together with my girls…
And I’m pretty sure that’s when grandma goes to bed, which proves that I AM getting older.
Also? Remember when we could shop at Forever 21 and put together an outfit for about $21 bucks?! FUN!
I tried doing that few days ago and, um, a dish rag covers more of my bottom than their skirts and shorts. By the way, I hate shorts. The last time I wore shorts, I was about 12 years old. You know, before the thighs decided to become one. Which was praaaaahbably before I learned that I could eat the entire Strawberry Blueberry Crumble, straight from the pan.
Once upon a time, I opened up a cookbook, filled with Southern recipes and it changed my life. Southerners make the best-est food on the planet. Desserts, especially. HELLO Pecan Pie! And Strawberry Shortcakes. Or how about something along the lines of this Skillet-Baked Peach and Cherry Cobbler… o.m.g. SO GOOD! Then I learned about the Southern version of lazy pies, a.k.a. a Crumble, and life got even bettah!
If you don’t think this looks like the best and sweetest treat that arrived from the heavens, then I don’t know what to do for ya. I can’t help you there. Nothing more than berries baked with a crunchy topping of sugar, flour, butter and almonds, this crumble will certainly satisfy your pie-cravings during the lazy summer days.
Add a big dollop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and eat.it.UP!
