Apple Berry Cherry Cheesecake Crumble

This is how I did it; 18x20 crumble

4 Apples;

Granny Smith
Golden Delicious
Gala
Jacob

1/2 bag of each frozen fruits; Berry mix, Black Cherry, Blueberry

In a pot place Apples and sweat over med heat before adding frozen fruit add 2 tbsp cinnamon about a tsp of nutmeg and a few sprinkles of clove (pinch)

Your not cooking the mix as much as you are sweating it and coating the flavors evenly. After they have sweated about a centimeter of liquid to the bottom of the pan add about 1/8 cup of jiffy mix slowly sprinkling and mixing as you go. Some white is okay.

After you done with the mix grease a 18x20 double cake pan (or a subsequent broiler pan)
Pour mix into the pan and add 6 tbsp of jiffy baking mix or self rising flour onto fruit


Now the filling which is optional lends a nice cheesecake flavor

2 packages of cream cheese
1/4 cup of sugar in the raw OR 1/8 of a cup of white sugar
Heat cream cheese a little to get it flowing if need be
1 tbsp vanilla
2 eggs
Mix in a bowl and pour on top of fruit spread with a spatula as even as you can manage without messing with it too much
