I love a good crumble and let me tell you – once you’ve tried this you won’t be able to get enough of it.
This is such a warm and comforting desert for this time of year and delicious with a dollop of ice cream. If you want to be a bit healthier, serve with a few tablespoons of non fat greek yoghurt instead!
If you have a nut allergy then obviously omit the pecans from the crumble topping. You could always substitute them for good old Scottish oats.
She would lift me up to sit on the bunker, sit down her big bowl of butter pieces, sugar and flour and together we'd rub, rub, rub the mix, twenty fingers making light work of the job at hand. I was convinced back then that my tiny wee fingers did just as much as her wonderful experienced hands - largely because that's what she told me.
As I type, I wish I could sit one more time on my nana's bunker and feel her old, wrinkled hands rub a crumble next to mine. Instead, mine are the hands of experience and I am fortunate to have many, many little fingers in my life ready to make a few fruity memories with me. After all, it really does taste better when twenty fingers do the work.
Please do send us your photographs and share your ideas with us. We'd love to use them in our new Perthshire gallery section. As always, tag them #PerthLoveFest and we'll scatter them around our own social media.
Happy Memory Making,
PS This is a perfect Meal Makers dish for all you lovely people involved it cooking.
