Very delicious. I did make a few changes, some of which weren't good, like cutting down on the butter. (The crumbs were still "dry" at the end of cooking.) I reduced some of the spices and added Grande Marnier and minced candied ginger to the apricots from my backyard. I also substituted eight drops of vanilla stevia for the white sugar. Over all it was really good -- just needed to use the full butter amount. I also found almond gelato on sale today and topped it with that. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

This was first made for Father's Day. It has been made 3 more times since then. The first time raspberries were added as I had a handful left. The apricots were from Costco and were very good. Everyone loved this. I made it a second time with home grown apricots, coconut was added as i had a little left, marvelous. Today I made it with mixed stone fruit. Primarily apricots but also donut peaches, regular peaches and nectarines. These were all back yard fruits from a neighbor. I do not add much or any sugar to the fruit itself. The first two times only half the topping mixture was used and that was sufficient when served with ice cream. Today I doubled everything and placed in a 9x13 pan. I'll update on the results after the July 4 party.

I was a bit disappointed. I may have put in too much lemon juice, but my cobbler came out sour, even though the fruit was sweet. I will try again with less lemon juice and more sugar. The crumble topping was good, though I substituted it with sliced almonds instead of pecans, since that's what I have on hand.
