Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare an 11 x 7-inch baking dish (can use a 13 x 9-inch but it will not be as high).
  3. Spread the blueberries in the bottom of the prepared baking pan.
  4. In a small saucepan over medium heat combine the sugar, cornstarch, water and 2-3 Tbsp lemon juice; cook and stir until thick and clear, then add in the vanilla.
  5. Pour over, then gently stir in the cooked mixture with the blueberries.
  6. In a bowl combine the flour with oats, brown sugar and cinnamon.
  7. Add in the melted butter; mix until crumbly (I start mixing with a spoon then finish mixing with my hands).
  8. Sprinkle over the top of blueberries (there will be a couple of empty spots that is okay, there may seem like a lot of crumble but it will settle when baking).
  9. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until blueberry mixture bubbles and the topping is brown.
  10. Serve with ice cream-- enjoy!

I followed the recipe to the letter, and mine turned out a little runny. It tasted really good, though. Will make again with some adjustments - want to add chopped pecans to the topping and thicken the filling a bit more. Overall a really good crisp.

This was wonderful, but got to admit I made some changes (I don't know why, but I've got to put my own spin on things). I added the zest of the lemon to the syrup. Used almond instead of vanilla extract. Used 3 c berries and 2 chopped apples. Decreased flour to 3/4 c and increased oats to 1 c. I think I would decrease sugar slightly next time. Everything came out perfectly: bubbly thick fruit and a nice, crunchy topping. Served with a dollop of whipped cream. This is definitely going into my arsenal of dessert recipes. Can't wait until our nectarines ripen to try this.

This crisp is delicious!! I decided to halve this since I was only feeding 4 and I wish I had made th whole thing! I did use 3 cups of blueberries which made it nice and juicy. The crisp part was perfect--not too wet, not too dry, you have a real winner here! I only had reconstituted lemon juice, and it was just fine in this recipe.
