Scrumptious Strawberry Almond Crumble

I'm not a dessert fan and really not a fan of crumbles so you can imagine my surprise when I LOVED this!  It's probably the almond! Or the strawberry?  Either way it's easy and SO delicious!

A fabulous recipe by Nigella! Strawberry Almond Crumble.

I love almond and try to incorporate them into desserts whenever I can so when I saw Nigella make this on tv I had to have to give it a try.
Lucky for me the food network converted the recipe to cups and tablespoons! Here it is 

It's all very simple, and you're likely to have all the ingredients at home.. basically it starts with strawberries in a pie plate sprinkled with almond meal, sugar and vanilla.

The topping comes together when you work the cold cubes of butter into the flour and baking powder mixture with your hands (so much fun!).  Then toss in the coarse sugar and shaved almonds and sprinkled over the fruit

Bakes in 30 minutes on 400 F.

REALLY easy last minute dessert! Serve with whipped cream, ice cream or even just a drizzle of heavy cream (As Nigella did!)

That crumble looks like it would be an excellent topping for Greek yogurt! Yum.

Well, I am a dessert fan, a crumble fan, and an almond fan, so it looks like I need to make this. I haven't made a crumble all winter---thanks for the inspiration!
