Well, I've been baking up a storm all weekend preparing for a little get together my uncle hosted on Saturday. I'll give you a round up of everything I made on Wednesday, but today I'll share this Blueberry Crisp. I don't normally make fruity desserts - I'm more of a chocolate/peanut butter lover, but I'm really trying to step outside of my comfort zone. Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits so this seemed like a good recipe to start with. First of all, it is super easy! And so delicious! It really is the perfect summer dessert - warm, fruity and crisp. I liked it a lot, and I'll definitely be trying it again sometime soon. Maybe I'll even experiment with different types of fruits. Blackberries, raspberries, maybe even strawberries? Enjoy!
1 pint (2 cups) fresh blueberries
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, gently toss blueberries and sugar; set aside. In a separate large bowl, combine flour, oats and brown sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly. Press half of mixture into an 8"x8" baking pan. Cover with berries. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over berries. Bake in preheated oven for 30-40 minutes, or until berries are bubbly and topping is golden brown. YIELD: 6-8 servings.
