An early fall cobbler with blackberries bubbling in their juice beneath a golden cream biscuit. A crunchy oatmeal crisp made with mid-summer's sweet nectarines and raspberries. Or a comforting pear bread pudding made with brioche to soften a harsh winter's day. In RUSTIC FRUIT DESSERTS, James Beard Award-winning chef Cory Schreiber and Julie Richardson, owner of Baker & Spice, share their repertoire of classic fruit desserts, including crumbles, crisps, Betty's, buckles, and pies that showcases the freshest in-season fruit available. Simple, scrumptious, and always a cherished favorite, these heritage desserts are (thankfully) experiencing a long-due revival.
