RECIPE: Strapple Crumble

These recipes are the concoctions of (fictitious) cartoon comic chef extraordinaire, Sherri’s neighbor and cooking mentor, Chef Chumley.  Chef and Sherri are happy to bring them to you on Wednesdays and Fridays.


This dish is a healthier variation of a popular one that includes cranberries and margarine (instead of the strawberries, applesauce and oil).  If you ask me, this one tastes even better!  It’s a multi-purpose dish that can be used for dessert, or as a sweet side dish. No matter which way you serve it, it will be a guaranteed crowd-pleasing hit!
