Very Berry Crumble Pie
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 45-55 minutes
  • Servings: 6-8
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 2 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 cup strawberry jam
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 9" pie crust
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place the strawberries and blackberries in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix the strawberry jam and orange liqueur. Gently fold the jam and the 1/4 cup flour into the berries. Pour the berries into the prepared pie crust.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the 1/2 cup flour, brown sugar, oatmeal, cinnamon and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture is nice and crumbly. Top the pie with the crumb mixture. Bake the pie for 45 to 55 minutes or until the berries are bubbly. If the crust is browning too quickly, cover with aluminum foil. Allow the pie to cool for at least an hour before cutting.
