In Your Face

I can't help it. I love close shots of ooey gooey desserts.

Since you can't get your face up close and personal with this crumble, I'm just helping you out.

I was completely inspired by the tropical flavors of Joy the Baker's Strawberry Pineapple Crumble last month. Crisps and crumbles are my most favorite desserts next to pie. This fruit combination was a brilliant new idea; I love pineapple, but it never comes to mind for dessert.

I followed her recipe but doubled it and shaved a bit of sugar from the fruit and some butter from the topping. I also used salted butter which was an amazing contrast with the sweet filling.

Oh. my. goodness. this is good.

That does look incredible! I have to admit I'm not the biggest fan of fruity desserts, but this certainly is in my
face...I want to dig in with a shovel!
