Blueberry Fruit Crunch
Posted by moderndaygourmet on September 2, 2007
This is one of the first recipes I learned to make from memory (I was very young and quite proud of myself!). It is great with ice cream. This is the sort of thing you would see on Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee (FTR, I consider that a ridiculous show. Nothing wrong with using shortcuts; I do it myself, but I’ve never understood the point of having a whole TV show about it). Anyway, it’s a great quick dessert.
1 package Duncan Hines blueberry muffin mix (or another brand that has the can of blueberries)
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 can fruit pie filling (I like cherry, but have also used apple and peach)
1/4 cup butter
1/8 cup chopped pecans
Spread pie filling in a 8″ square pan or similar size. Sprinkle almond extract and cinnamon over the pie filling, then blueberries (which have been drained). Melt butter and combine with the muffin mix and pecans, then crumble over the fruit. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until browned on top.
