We got this recipe from SAVEUR contributor Eric Goodman and his wife, Susan Morgan. They advised us to freeze fresh-picked raspberries to make delicious, summery desserts even in the dead of winter.

Raspberry Betty
This simple but delicious dessert of fruit, sugar, butter, and bread crumbs has been enjoyed since Colonial times.
Yield: serves 6

Ingredients

  • 3 pints fresh raspberries
  • 4 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 cup coarse fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Toss raspberries with 2 tbsp. of the sugar in a medium baking dish and set aside.
  2. Combine bread crumbs, melted butter, and remaining 2 tbsp. sugar in a small bowl, breaking up any clumps with the tines of a fork.
  3. Scatter topping evenly over berries and bake until topping is deep golden and berries are bubbling, about 40 minutes. Set aside to let cool briefly before serving.
