Blueberry Crumble

When you don't have time to make blueberry pie, make blueberry crumble in a pie pan!

An easy, pretty, crowd-pleasing dessert

My husband and his entire family love blueberry desserts so now we include them in our celebrations too!

I used to make blueberry pie all the time but ever since my son was diagnosed with celiac disease and went gluten-free, I have to admit  I’m not a huge fan of all the work involved in making a pie crust.  So we started making blueberry crumble!

It is super easy and just as yummy.

And served in a pie pan, it’s a pretty and crowd-pleasing dessert for the holiday table.
