Stone Fruit Pleasures

When I arrived at the Farmer's Market this weekend, I was in total heaven with all the stone fruit choices that were beautifully displayed before me. I couldn't stop tasting all the varietals of nectarines, cherries, peaches, and apricots. With my basket overflowing, I knew there was a fruit crumble in our future! This is a very simple dessert I make throughout the year with any seasonal fruit of choice. When I prepared it this afternoon, I tried to pay attention to the measurements because I usually just mix everything together and hope for the best. Trust me, it is extremely easy and incredibly delicious!
Cherry-Peach Crumble
serves 4
1/2 pound organic cherries
2-3 organic peaches
1 cup organic Muesli
1/4 cup organic brown sugar
6 tbsp. unsalted organic butter [softened]
Cut fruit into small pieces and place into a baking dish [9x9 or something similar].
In a bowl, mix muesli, brown sugar and butter together forming a 'chunky' mixture.
Sprinkle the topping over the fruits.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until the fruit is bubbling and topping is golden.
Serve alone or with vanilla ice cream.
