Berry Crumble

Berry Crumble is a bit of a variation on a regular 2 crust berry pie. Im a messy cook, and a perfectionist. I want my pies to look perfect. When I make a two crust pie, I'm often disappointed. My crimping skills lack perfection.

This year for Easter, I decided to give it up and just make a crumb topping for my pie, rather than fight with a second crust. It was so simple and a nice change! Its always a healthy diet habit to include a fruit pie for dessert during the holidays and this pie is loaded with berries and light on the sugar.

Berry Crumble Pie from Kerry of Healthy Diet Habits

We spend the holidays with good friends. I am always given the job of bringing berry pies, because everyone prefers them to any other pie. I don't think we could function minus a berry pie. This berry crumble was a nice twist on an old favorite that we all enjoyed!
