Recipe Ingredients for Blueberry Lemon Crumbles

1 cup almonds
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons finely grated fresh lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened
2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup dried blueberries
1/2 cup blueberry preserves

Recipe Directions for Blueberry Lemon Crumbles

  1. Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 375F.

  2. Toast almonds in 1 layer in a shallow baking pan, stirring once, until golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Cool completely in pan on a rack. Leave oven on.

  3. Pulse flour, sugars, 1 teaspoon zest, cinnamon, and salt in a food processor until combined, then add butter and pulse until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add yolks and vanilla and process until mixture begins to come together in clumps.

  4. Transfer 1 1/3 cups packed dough to a bowl and stir in almonds (some almonds will break) for almond crumble topping. Gather remaining dough into a ball.

  5. Generously butter bottoms, sides, and top of muffin pan. Press 1 tablespoon dough into bottom and up side of each muffin cup. Chill until dough is firm, about 15 minutes.

  6. Stir remaining teaspoon zest, lemon juice (2 teaspoons), and dried blueberries into preserves in a small bowl. Spoon a rounded 1/2 teaspoon preserves mixture onto dough in each muffin cup. Crumble 1 rounded teaspoon almond topping evenly into each cup.

  7. Bake until topping is deep golden brown and filling is bubbling, about 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely in muffin pan on a rack. Loosen edges of crumbles carefully with a small offset spatula or sharp knife, then carefully remove from pan.

  8. Cooks' note:

  9. Crumbles keep in an airtight container at room temperature 1 week.
