Blueberry Crisp Recipe
It’s time for blueberries to be coming in and we just discovered some wild blueberry bushes around my boyfriend’s parent’s house. Since blueberries are his absolute favorite fruit, you can only imagine how many are sitting in my fridge right now. So I’ve been getting creative and figuring out new things to make with them and have come up with this Blueberry Crisp recipe that I would just feel too bad keeping to myself. You better get a napkin cause this one’s seriously tasty!
Ingredients you’ll need are:
~2 cups of blueberries
~¼ cup granulated sugar
~1 tbsp lemon juice
~1 tbsp cornstarch
~3 tbsp butter (cold)
~¼ cup brown sugar
~¼ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
~¼ cup flour
~pinch of salt
The first thing you want to do is preheat your oven to 350° and spray a 9x9 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Next, in a large bowl, add in the butter, oats, brown sugar, flour, and salt. Use two forks to break the butter and create a crumble. Keep working at it until there are just pea-sized clumps of butter left. And be careful! It can get messy quick!
In a separate large bowl, combine the blueberries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Toss it together gently until all of the white has disappeared. Then gently empty the bowl into the baking dish and spread the blueberries evenly across the bottom. Scrape the bowl completely empty of all the extra juices and sugar.
Taking the crumble mixture, quickly make sure nothing has clumped back together and then sprinkle it evenly on top of the blueberries in the dish. Make sure to get all of the extra sandy pieces at the bottom of the bowl because those will cook into the crisp. Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes or until the blueberry juices are bubbling around the edges and the top looks golden.
When it comes out of the oven, resist any temptations you have to eat it immediately and set it aside to cool down for about 15 minutes or so. Once it’s cooled down a bit, it’s ready to serve. You can have it alone (like I prefer) or add some ice cream and whipped topping if you wanna be fancy. ;)
This stays good covered with foil at room temperature for a few days or can also be placed in the fridge. There are so many options with crisps and cobblers, which is probably what makes them some of my favorite desserts! If you try this out for yourself, I’d love to know what you think! Also, leave me a comment letting me know what your favorite dessert is or how you’ve been cooking blueberries this season! Have a great day!
