20 Feb Mixed Berry Crumble in Le Creuset Mini Cocottes
There has been no escaping the cold here in New York. Temperatures have been so cold that I’ve been reluctant to even leave my apartment. When the weather is like this I always crave warm comforting foods. Le Creuset has these adorable mini cocottes that are perfecting for making warm dishes in single servings.
I’m also a sucker for matte dish-ware and when Le Creuset came out with a matte collection for their mini cocottes, I had to get my hands on it! Even though I decided to break them in by using them for a dessert recipe, they can be used for a variety of savory dishes as well. Think onion soup, baked eggs, or even warm dips! Be warned, I’m kind of obsessed with these so I hope you don’t get sick of the bajillion mini cocotte recipes I’m about to fill this blog with ;).
I learned a variation of this recipe during a baking class I took here in the city. It’s fairly easy and doesn’t require any in depth baking knowledge! Berries might not be in season but frozen berries work just as well. When I served these, I topped each with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and fresh mint.
Hope you enjoy it!
