Ruby Cookie Crumble
What better way to celebrate
Than with Summers' bountiful
When I bake it's to utilize what is freshest and whatever I have in the kitchen at the time.
This easy wonderful dessert is a double treat.
You get cookie on top
and luscious fruit with a thin juicy syrup.
If you are not watching calories add some frozen yogourt or ice cream and watch it melt...
