Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes, at room temperature
  • 3/4 Cups rolled oats
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/3 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 Cup packed light brown sugar

Directions

Stir together all the ingredients except the butter in a large bowl. Sprinkle in the butter pieces and toss to coat. Rub the butter into the dry ingredients with your fingertips until the butter is incorporated and the mixture is chunky but not homogenous.

If using for a crumble top, chill for at least 15 minutes before using. If using as a crust, press evenly into the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased, preferably metal 9-inch pie pan.

Freeze until solid, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake on the middle oven rack for 18 to 20 minutes. If the crust slumps or cracks while baking, gently push the crumble back into place, while hot, with a clean, folded kitchen towel. Cool completely before filling.

The crust will keep refrigerated for 5 days or frozen for 1 month.

Oat Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Oat Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
