Crumb topping for pies/cobblers
I use a pretty standard topping that I adapt for whatever I am making. At this time of year, we have a bounty of fresh apples, so I make this topping and refrigerate it...then a pie is no more than 15 minutes to put in the oven.
Recipe: 1/ 1 cup brown sugar
2/ 1 cup melted butter
3/ 1 cup of oatmeal
4/ cinnamon to taste (for apples)
then refrigerate until it starts to harden....take fork and "rake"
Put into a sealed contasiner in the fridge and will keep for weeks(ya right!)
Then I also freeze pie dough already in the plate (like commercially) and a pie is no more than 15 minutes until it is the oven. :D
Life is short...Eat dessert first!
