Walnut Berry Crumble

Walnut Berry Crumble

Ingredients

For the berries:

  • 5 1/2 cups mixed berries (use fresh or frozen raspberries, blueberries, blackberries or red currants)
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the crumble topping:

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped California walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  2. In a large bowl toss the berries together with the sugar and vanilla until coated.
  3. Divide the berries among 4 oven-safe bowls or ramekins of at least 2 cup capacity.
  4. To make the topping, put the walnuts, flour, sugar and butter in a medium bowl. With your fingertips or a fork, rub the ingredients together until the mixture looks crumbly.
  5. Sprinkle over the berries; it will be a light topping.
  6. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes, or until the berries are bubbling and the topping is lightly browned. Cool slightly before serving.
  7. Serving suggestion: The crumble goes nicely with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
