A healthy alternative to pie, with just the crumb topping bringing on the calories. Use this method with any fruit or berry to create a delicious crumble. My other favorites are apple, blueberry and cranberry/pineapple (use canned).
¾ cup flour
¼ cup sugar
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
⅓ cup margarine or oil
Slice nectarines and place in a lightly greased 8x8 pan.
In another bowl, combine a nice amount (several handfuls) of flour with both white and brown sugar (two to three palmfuls of each), a sprinkling of oatmeal and/or chopped pecans, if using, and a dash of vanilla. Taste a tiny bit with your finger to make sure it is to your liking, and add ingredien
Sprinkle the crumb topping on top of the nectarines. (If you have too much topping, freeze the extra in a plastic bag and save for later.) Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes, or until fragrant, the nectarines are bubbling slightly and the topping is lightly browned.
