I made this today and it was delicious. I doubled the recipe and put in a 9 x 13 pan. I also used a mix of frozen blackberries, raspberries, cherries and blueberries and served with whipped cream. It was raved about at our family dinner.

Delicious! I love recipes like this that are not only quick and easy, but yummy too. I used fresh blackberries and old-fashioned oats instead of quick-cooking oats. The juice was a little runnier than we like, so I think next time I will increase the amount of cornstarch. I baked this in a 6"x9" baking dish for 25 minutes. Served warm with vanilla ice cream...yum!

Do not use cornstarch with lemon. Gave it an unpleasant taste using frozen wild blackberries. Other than that taste good.

The flavor of this crisp was very good but it was way too runny. After looking at other recipes I question the amount of cornstarch. Is one teaspoon correct? I had 4 cups of berries so I doubled all the ingredients and added 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. I baked it a little longer to get to the bubbly filling part. To me it just didn't get thick enough. I'm going to try again with the exact recipe and hope it works. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Update: There is nothing wrong with this recipe. The problem was with my oven. I made it over again and used my neighbor's oven. I made it exactly as posted and it was great. I'll definately make it again as soon as I get a new oven.

Good! Served with ice cream and everyone enjoyed it. Doubled the recipe but used 5 cups frozen blackberries. Used a 13x9 dish but should have used smaller, more like a 11x7 for the double recipe. Even using more berries, found the recipe heavy on topping. I would double the fruit mix next time, but that's just my preference. Still delicious as is. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This crisp was very good, but I did make a few changes. I added 1 TB of cornstarch, left out the water, and used 1 c blackberries and 1 c raspberries. Topping came out nice and crisp and filling set up really well.

Too sweet - too tart?!? Was PERFECT for us!! I did end up cooking for quite a bit longer but my oven messes just about everything up. Thanks so much for a great way to use up this bag of blackberries taking over my freezer....I thought I could use them in smoothies but the seeds are too much texture there - just perfect here. Thanks again!!

This was really yummy and sooo easy! I followed the recipe exactly, except I added a little more sugar to the berry mix because I used wild blackberries and I was afraid they might be too tart. I would definitely recommend this recipe! Deeelish! :)
