Raspberry Peach Crumble

Raspberry Peach Crumble from Four & Twenty Blackbirds 
Sometimes (ok, all the time) I want a pie of pie. With the summer heat here in full force, I face the possibility of excommunication by my family for turning on the oven. So I have to daydream about pie. And when I daydream about pie. I'm dreaming out pie from Four & Twenty Blackbirds. On Friday, I made that day dream a reality and treated myself to a slice of their Raspberry Peach Crumble. Smart move, very smart move...

Blondie tried their Raspberry Peach Pie last summer and was a huge fan. Four & Twenty's crust is exceptional--it's tender and buttery and flaky and every a good pie crust should be. But as a kid, I was all about the crumble, so if you offer me crumb topping, chances are I'm going to go for it.

As with all of Four & Twenty's pies, the filling is pitch perfect. Not to sweet, not too soupy. And their crumb topping has a hint of spices. Their pie menu is seasonal and they use fresh produce from a local orchard, so if you want some of this, get on it. Stat.
