Cory Schreiber and Julie Richardson
Rustic Fruit Desserts: Crumbles, Buckles, Cobblers, Pandowdies, and More
Jan 2010
Ten Speed Press

Whether it’s the bushels of summer peaches and strawberries filling farmers market stalls, Autumn’s bountiful apples and pears, or winter’s preserved berries and citrus, there’s never a shortage of sweet, sumptuous fruit deserving of the right crumbly, buttery crust. And with Rustic Fruit Desserts, chefs Cory Schreiber and Julie Richardson provide a wealth of traditional options, from the Brown Betty to the lesser-known—awkwardly named—Grunts and Buckles of yesteryear. But Schreiber and Richardson aren’t writing a historical cookbook. Rustic Fruit Desserts defines and showcases the potential of these “old timey” preparations with serious emphasis on quality and modern baking practices. Recipes are divided seasonally, with recommendations and descriptions for the best seasonal produce. And helpful Kitchen Hints, versatile recipes, and creative ingredient combinations make this a valuable resource for the committed baker, especially one who hasn’t yet tested their skills on a classic pandowdy.
