Quick Fruit Crumble

Another from the latest cookbook. I haven’t tried it yet but will soon! You can try different combinations of fruit filling and fruits in their own syrup.


  • 1 c. coarsely crushed vanilla wafers (about 25 wafers)
  • 1/3 c. plain spreadable cream cheese (I always use light cream cheese and it will be spreadable if it’s softened)
  • 1/4 c. chopped pecans
  • 19 oz. apple pie filling (about 1 can)
  • 14 oz. sliced peaches in syrup, drained (about 1 can)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 C). Measure first 3 ingredients into medium bowl. Stir until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Combine remaining 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Spoon into greased 2 quart (2L) shallow baking dish. Sprinkle crumb mixture over top.  Bake for about 15 minutes until bubbling and golden.

Serves 4.
