Triple Berry Crumbles

July 8, 2013

Author Notes: I like to make this red, white and blue dessert for July 4th, but this combo of summer berries works for the entire season. Special equipment: half a dozen six-ounce ramekins.Lizthechef

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place all the berries in a large bowl. Add the sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice. Gently stir to mix.
