Pear and Cherry Slump

2019-05-14T16:11:34+00:00

Old-time classic desserts are making a comeback thanks to their simplicity and comfort-food factor. Crumbles, buckles, grunts and slumps are all variations of fruit combined with sugar and a crumble or dumpling topping.  Slumps are particularly fun to make since they require few ingredients and are cooked right on the stove-top. This vintage dessert gets its name from the batter dumplings that “slump” into a layer of simmering fruit.  Our pear and cherry slump combines the contrasting flavors of these two crowd-pleasing fruits. The cherries also add some vivid color! Recipe Development and Photography: Williams-Raines YIELD: 6-8 INGREDIENTS Fruit filling  4 cups diced and [...]
