Scrunch - One of my favourite desserts

Crunchy cookie bottom+ Fresh fruit + yogurt cream = SCRUNCH!

This dessert is soooooo good! The creamy topping is equal parts whipping cream and yogurt... so it's not even that bad for you : )
Inspired by Food for Thought, in London. Read on for the recipe...


Cookie Crunch Bottom
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup whole wheat flour

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place flour & oats in a bowl and cut in the butter until the mixture is the texture of breadcrumbs. Then mix in the brown sugar. Press into a greased baking tray (to approximately 0.5 to 1 cm thick). Bake for 15-20 minutes, until lightly golden.
Allow to cool, then break into various sized pieces.  Try not to just eat the entire cookie as is at this point, like I started to do!

Yogurt Cream
250 ml whipping cream
1 cup plain yogurt
2-3 tablespoons honey (depending on how sweet you like it)

Beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Then mix in the yogurt and honey.

Fresh fruit: berries, banana, tropical fruit... anything can go into scrunch.

The assembly:
Place pieces of the cookie bottom into a bowl or serving dish. Cover with fresh fruit (reserve a few for garnish). Then cover with the cream. Garnish with more fresh fruit, nuts, coconut, chocolate or  whatever your heart desires!

Best eaten within a few hours making. Enjoy!
