After a long hike last Saturday we were ready for a warm treat. We made this yummy Blackberry Crumble and ate it in the afternoon before dinner.

Then we finished it for breakfast the next morning.

I love how easy it is throw together a fruit crumble.  It is faster (and healthier) than a pie or cobbler, because you can make the whole thing right in a cast iron skillet or a casserole dish.

Then you chop a few nuts, throw a few things together with a fork in a small bowl and dump it all on top of the berries.  Easy peasy!
