Thoughts

This is a wonderful recipe for any time of year. If you make your own preserves, feel free to use that as filling instead of a canned one. That would be a delicious idea!

This recipe is based off of a classic polish dessert called kruszon. Every household in Poland has their own recipe for this dessert, and this is one that my family makes. The meringue topping is our twist as this pastry usually comes without it. I think the meringue gives nice texture to the dessert and makes it look very cute and pretty.

I have tried making it with other fruits, but for me, the blueberries are the winners. Let me know in the comments what fruit you used and how you have enjoyed it!

  2. Beautiful creation, one that uniquely occupies the intersection of cobblers, fruit bars and crumbles. The fact that the recipe comes directly from the source (Poland) adds to the appeal.

    Blueberries are an inspired choice, one that few other fruits can rival, especially in this preparation. Red raspberries may come close, but we have to with until June for those. Thanks for inspiring dreams (and visions) of the fruit soon to come!
