DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt together in a large bowl.
  • Add the butter and blend it into the flour mixture with your fingers or a pastry blender to form a mixture with an oatmeal-like texture.
  • Beat the egg and milk together. Stir into the flour mixture with a fork until the dough comes together.
  • Remove to a clean, floured surface and knead gently just until smooth. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least one hour.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Grease and flour a 9x13-inch pan.
  • Roll the dough out to about the size of the pan. Place the dough in the pan and press it to cover the bottom, creating a lightly raised edge. Prick the dough lightly all over with a fork.
  • Sprinkle the breadcrumbs evenly over the dough. Arrange the fruit neatly on top of the dough, cut side up.
  • Bake in the preheated oven 35-45 minutes, or until the edges of the pastry are golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkly liberally with the remaining sugar and cinnamon. Serve hot or at room temperature.
