Blueberry/Blackberry Crisp

Saturday, June 2nd, 2012


I got this recipe from a magazine, but tweaked it a bit.  I added the blackberries and tweaked the crisp a little.  It came out really good!



1 Pint Blueberries
1-2 Pints Blackberries
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. lemon juice (or orange juice)
1/4 tsp. coarse salt


3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup glazed or candied walnuts
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. coarse salt
1 stick butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar


Preheat over to 375.  Make the filling by mixing berries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon (or orange) juice, and salt in a bowl.  Pour into 8 inch baking dish.

Cream butter and sugar in a mixer.  In a medium bowl, mix together flour, oats, walnuts, baking powder, and salt.  Stir flour mixture into butter mixture. 

Using hands, squeeze topping into clumps and sprinkle on top of fruit filling.  Bake until bubbly and topping is brown (around 50-60 minutes).

Cool before serving.  Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
