super simple berry crumble

Crumble {or crisp...according to wikipedia they are interchangeable} is pretty much the easiest dessert ever.  It is also a somewhat healthy dessert option.  I use very little added sugar, letting the fruit do the sweetening.

Last weekend I made berry crumble.  As it gets nearer to summer, berries are getting so much tastier and so much cheaper.  I eat berries year round but spring and summer means crazy amounts of berry consumption in this house. 

My recipe makes about three servings because the baking dish I use is fairly small.  If you want more, or are going to use a square baking dish, just double the amounts below.

super simple berry crumble {serves about three...more if you use it as an ice cream topping}
-two cups of fresh berries {I used a mix of strawberries and blackberries}
-1 1/2 tablespoons flour
-1 1/2 tablespoon butter {cold and cut into tiny pieces}
-1/2 tablespoon sugar
-tiny pinch of salt {around 1/8 a teaspoon}
-1 tablespoon honey

1. Pre-heat the oven to 350.
2. Slice berries {if necessary} and put them in the baking dish.  Top with the one tablespoon of honey.
3. In a separate bowl, use a pastry cutter or two knives to combine the flour, butter, sugar, and salt.  Once combined {it should resemble tiny little pebbles and not much of the flour should be "lose"} sprinkle it over the berries.
4. Bake for about 35 minutes, until nice and brown on top and bubbling on the bottom.  Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream or both :).
