The Taste of Summer...


   Warm, juicy berries, a crunchy crumble topping and creamy vanilla ice cream... the taste of summer!  It doesn't get any better than warm summer nights, al fresco dining, and a decadent dessert to share with friends and family.  Bake up some memories and enjoy the season and all its goodness.

You Will Need:

~ 6 cups of assorted berries (I used strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and tossed in some golden delicious apples)
~ 1/4 cup granulated sugar
~ 1 teaspoon of vanilla
~ 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
~ 1/2 cup all purpose flour
~ 1 teaspoon cinnamon
~ 3/4 cup rolled oats
~ 1 stick of butter cut into pieces, room temperature
~ 12 frozen tart shells (baked according to package directions before filling)

  • Combine berries, white sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl and toss to combine
  • Fill baked tart shells with the fruit mixture
  • For the topping mix the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and oats together in a dry bowl
  • Using a pastry blender (or a fork) cut the butter into the dry mixture until a crumble starts to form
  • Sprinkle topping evenly over each berry filled tart
  • Bake in an oven pre-heated to 375 until the berries are bubbling and the topping is golden brown
  • Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top
