Blueberries, Strawberries, and Peaches, Oh My!

I still cannot come up with a name for this heavily frequented dessert.

Strawberry surprise? Blueberry crunch? Peach crumble?

Whatever you want to call it, it's perfect. And completely full-proof. One of those.. oh my gosh I have to contribute something to this dinner/cookout/party.. oh yes, that fruit-thingy (insert sigh of relief).

What you will need:

16oz of whatever fruit is in season
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (or all purpose flour)
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
6 tablespoons softened butter (I use Smart Balance)

What to do:

Trim/slice/make-bite-size your fruit of choice (bonus: blueberries are already bite sized). Place fruit into a bowl and cover with sugar and vanilla. Stir. Now here's the hard part... Let it sit. For as long as you can bear it. Anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours. Just. Look. Away.

Combine all ingredient. Mash it up with a fork until crumbly.

Pour filling into a glass baking dish and pour the crumbly-goodness on top. Pat down with your hand.

Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes or so.

Once the fruit is bubbly and topping is crunchy, you're good to go.

Don't forget the vanilla ice cream! (we always do.)
