Course Dessert

Smulpaj (Crumb pie) is a Swedish dessert. It differs from traditional pies in that it has no pastry shell; instead, fillings are added directly to the pie dish after greasing. Butter is mixed with sugar, wheat flour and oatmeal to a crumbly dough[1] that is strewn over the fillings. This is then baked to a crust.

Smulpaj is commonly made with apples, rhubarb, or bilberries, and served with whipped cream, vanilla sauce, or ice cream.
