Prepare The Base

Set aside 1 1/2 cups of dough and add the remaining dough into the prepared baking pan. It will be pasty and sticky. Use an offset spatula or your fingers to smooth dough into corners, pressing down for a firm fit. Wet the spatula or your hands to make this process easier.

Layer the Crumble

Spread blueberry “jam” evenly over dough. Sprinkle blueberries over jam and chopped nectarines, if using. Scoop the remaining dough out onto blueberry mixture. It's OK if it's not totally covered, just be sure it's evenly spread over the surface.
