Comforts from the Cottage Table

Comforts from the Cottage TableBringing together tastes of late summer and early fall, Apple and Blackberry Crisp greets the first brisk day of the coming season with a delicious cobbler. The traditional crumble boasts a bubbly fruit compote of sweet-tart Pink Lady apples and plump, juicy berries with a golden-brown topping of brown sugar and oats. Served warm, the baked delight reaches perfection with the contrast of a chilled crème anglaise, a rich custard sauce infused with vanilla bean and poured over the dessert for a mouthwatering finish.
