Plum and Blackberry Shortbread Mini Crumbles

September is a month of transition. Summer into autumn. Summer is not exactly over but there is a feeling of autumn in the air. In terms of food, this time of year brings us beautiful things to eat. Plums and blackberries are amongst these.

On Sundays, we like to be lazy and take our time. We often go to the park in the afternoon, lie on a blanket and read a good book. Last time, we had taken these mini crumbles with us, and they were the perfect snack to enjoy at the park.
