Crumbles, crisps, cobblers start popping in blogosphere as soon as autumn approaches & stay there for whole of winter. Digging into a warm dish in AW is heaven. If any of you had been in my journey from the beginning then you would know that I had a baking wishlist posted on this blog. And the crumble, crisps & cobblers were on top of that list. Forget making, I’ve never even tasted a crumble before & now both V & I are total converts. :)

I decided to play safe & took a recipe from Joy of Baking. The recipe called for using cranberries, but they are not available around, so I skipped them. Even apples & pears were local produce & not tart tasting. Probably that is why i found the crumble a bit too sweet. So next time I am going to either use a tart tasting fruit or reduce the sugar. I also used quick cooking oats as old-fashioned rolled oats were not available.

I baked the crumble in individual 6 oz ramekins as I do not have a pie dish. This was the first outing for my ramekins as they have been languishing in their carton since traveling 7 seas (US to India) last year. The filling was sufficient for 5 ramekins.
