Make Ahead Fruit Crumble Topping


Fruit Crumble Topping 094


We love fresh fruit cobblers, like this or this.  So when I saw this quick little recipe for Make Ahead Topping in the September issue of Good Housekeeping, I decided it was a brilliant idea, I tried it, and I love it! The thing I love most is I can make a small cobbler for two, or a large pan for company and the topping is right in the freezer. The topping is perfect with any variety of fruit – peaches, pears, berries and apples, plus I can’t wait to try it on rhubarb.
