feed me friday: crumble-berry pie

I don't like getting stuck in a rut, and right now I feel stuck in a rut.  Why?  Well, because this blog is all crafty stuff.  That's the point of my goal after all . . . craft all my Christmas gifts.  I want to stay pretty focused on that, but I feel like every once in a while I need a crafting reprieve.  And since this is my blog, I guess I get to do whatever I want.  (There are so few place in life I get to say that . . . none actually . . . except this blog.)  

A few weeks ago I wrote up a little recipe for the 30 Day Food Challenge over at A Vision to Remember.  I have a few more recipes coming up over there in the next few weeks.  I had so much fun sharing recipes food crafts; rather than crafty crafts that I'm going to do a little post on Fridays called Feed Me Friday.  (Don't you love how so many blog features use alliteration.  I tried not to, but I just couldn't help myself.)  I'm going to post a new recipe every Friday until I get sick of doing it.  Then I'll stop.  I'm hoping to stick with it long enough to get into some Christmas recipes.  I LOVE Christmas recipes! 

Today's first Feed Me Friday is featuring my first recipe in the 30 Day Food Challenge. 
This recipe is one of the those projects that I just figured out while messing around in the kitchen.  It's a berry pie/fruit crisp hybrid.  It's so easy and yummy!  Two of my favorite things! 

Crumble-Berry Pie

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

What you need:
- 4 cups of any combination of fresh or thawed berries (I usually use blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 T. flour
- 1 T. lemon juice
- 1 t. vanilla
- a dash of salt
- 9 inch deep dish pie shell
- 1/2 t. cinnamon
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup regular oats
- 1/4 cup butter, melted

What you do:
1) In pot on medium heat, cook sugar, water, flour, lemon juice, vanilla and salt until blended and thick.  Stir and watch so that mixture doesn't burn. Remove from heat.

2) Add berries and stir - enfolding berries into sugar mixture.

3) Pour berry mixture into 9 inch deep dish pie shell.

4) Mix cinnamon, brown sugar, flour, oats and melted butter in a bowl.

5) Crumble mixture over berries completely covering it and sealing to the crust edge.

6) Place on cookie sheet and about bake 45 minutes on middle rack.

7) Cool, cut, serve and ENJOY! 

Cook on!

Well, to be honest, I hate pies. BUT my husband loves them and this looks like one he would really enjoy. I have NEVER made him a pie. Sad. True. I think it's time I changed that. This should be a good recipe to do that with. Thanks for the inspiration!
