This recipe is really easy and quick. It’s also versatile. The bottom is a crunchy cookie, the center is any luscious fruit you have handy and the top is a tasty crumble. Put them together and what do you got…bib-iddy-bob-iddy-boo, an amazing dessert or healthy snack just for you.
I’ve made this several times with a pineapple center, apple center, rhubarb or a fresh plum center, and our favorite, mixed berries. When it’s berry season I make the center with fresh mixed berries. When they are not in season I buy a bag of fresh frozen. Aldi carries them and they also have a variety of other fresh frozen fruits to select from. One day I was stuck on the boat and used my homemade raspberry compote. I made this one with pineapple and plumbs. If you’re in a hurry, use a jar of preserves. Give it a try and remember…be creative.
Now, here’s the trick. You can also use this crust as cookie dough. Create the Cookie Crumble and roll into two logs. Wrap each separate in baking papers and freeze. It’s there when you need it. Take them out 15 minutes before you whip this recipe up or you can slice in rings and make cookies. See versatile right!
