Very Berry Nut Crumble

Very Berry Nut Crumble
Summer is here and I have loads of berries!! What to make? What to make?? A berry crumble!! I couldn't decide what to call this Crumble. So many gorgeous berries and toppings!( Strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, coconut, almond, pecan Crumble) PHEW!!! What a mouthful, so I came up with Very Berry Nut Crumble, much better, but so many goodies are included in this gorgeous PIE, or as we say CRUMBLE!!
Stir together flour, sugar, oats, and salt.
Grind up pecans.
Add cold butter slices to dry mixture and cut up with two knives.
Cut, cut, cut, I sound like a movie director!!
Keep cutting up until butter is in small pieces.
Add ground up nuts.
Ground up nuts give the Crumble a beautiful flavor.
Add Coconut.
Add Roasted Almond Slivers. Mix topping thoroughly.
Cover fruit with topping and bake! Make sure to place dish on a baking sheet, this will bubble and may spill over!
Very Berry Nut Crumble goes FAST in our home, I wish I had made two!!
Now if you don't have Pecans, you can substitute Walnuts or Macadamias, or whatever is your favorite!
Perfect for a Pie Party or just for dessert! Can't wait until the next Pie Party!
Really delicious! The berries and nuts work so well together with the creaminess of butter.
Shoot!! I have to be quick to take a picture, those kids could smell this Crumble down the street!! Darn It!! Enjoy!! Nettie
