nectarine crumbles

Nectarine Crumbles
Serves: 6

{photo from weight watchers dot com}

6 large nectarines {ripe but firm}
6 Tbsp sugar {divided}
3 Tbsp plus 2 tsp all-purpose flour {divided}
3 Tbsp uncooked rolled oats
1 pinch ground cinnamon
1 pinch table salt
3 Tbsp unsalted butter, cold, cut into small pieces

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Cut nectarines into ½ inch chucks; place in a bowl and gently toss with 3 tablespoons sugar and 3 teaspoons flour. Divide nectarine mixture among six small ramekins.

In a mini-food processor, pulse 3 tablespoons sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, 3 tablespoons oats, cinnamon and salt for 2-3 seconds. Add butter. Pulse until just crumbly for 4-6 seconds.
Sprinkle crumb mixture on ramekins.

Place filled ramekins on a foil-lined baking pan. Bake until tops are golden and fruit is bubbly, 30-35 minutes.

Top with whipped cream {optional}
Peaches could be substituted for nectarines but I'm not a fan of their fuzzy skin.

#2 Venice, Florida 

"Venice is a town with a big heart, It has 14 miles of gorgeous beaches. 

On shore, the pleasures of Venice are equally beautiful. 

The lushly landscaped avenues of the historic district were 
designed in the 1920s as an homage to the town’s Italian namesake."
