One of the best things about summer is the abundance of fresh fruits. With plenty of berries and stone fruits to be found, there’s no better time to enjoy those sweet fruits. And one of the best ways to enjoy them is in a simple cobbler, crisp, or crumble. With those, the flavor focus is firmly on the fruits with a simple filling that’s complemented by a sweet topping.
These kinds of desserts are often called spoon desserts, which makes total sense. Just imagine grabbing a spoon and digging into a warm bowl of one of these fruity desserts topped with a scoop of ice cream or sweetened whipped cream. Mmmm… who’s hungry?
