Seasonal Fruit Cobbler
Makes one 9x9x2 inch pan of cobbler

Walnut Crust/Crumble ingredients:
* 3 cups walnuts
* 2 oz. Medjool Dates (weight without seeds)
* ¼ tsp. cinnamon
* ¼ tsp. liquid vanilla
* 1/8 tsp. sea salt
* Process all ingredients until walnuts are still slightly chunky.
* Save all for topping or:
* Separate the crumble in two equal portions.
* Sprinkle one portion evenly over bottom of pan and lightly compact.
* Reserve the other portion for the topping.

Fruit filling ingredients:
* 8 Cups sliced fruit of your choice (any combination of fruit or berries)
* 2 Tbs. lemon juice
* 2 Tbs. raw honey (optional)
* 1 Tbs. liquid vanilla
* 1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
* 1/8 tsp. sea salt
* Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
* Taste filling to adjust flavor if desired.
* Pack the filling into pan or evenly distribute the filling on top of the crust if you chose to use a crust.
* Then crumble the remaining crumble on top of the fruit filling and gently press.
* Decorate with fresh fruit slices and serve.
(This dessert is best on the day it is made. Over subsequent days the cobbler will begin to juice and the nuts will get soggy. You may choose to keep the crumble separate and top per portion. Keep covered in the fridge for up to 2 days.)

Use pecans instead of walnuts for the crust/topping. This cobbler lends itself to endless variations of fruit that can be used. Be creative; use what you love, and what is in season for the best result.
