It is snowing in Toronto. After a few weeks of mild winter weather, old man winter is here to visit and he has brought with him snow and a -23 windchill.

Boy was I glad to be inside staying nice and toasty beside some industrial gas ovens.

Today we made blueberry streusel and apple brown betty.

Both involved an oat, sugar and butter topping.

For the apple brown betty we took some apples, sliced them up and mixed them with sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon. It was then layered on top of a graham cracker crust and topped with the oat topping. Basically an apple pie but no pie crust. Into the oven…

For the blueberry streusel we made a pastry dough base.

Then layered on frozen blueberries that had been mixed with sugar, cinnamon and lemon zest.

Again topped with the oat topping and baked for about 40 minutes.

Out of the oven they both looked like this :
