  2. Wow! So easy and delicious! Loved the almonds in the topping. I cut this down to serve 2, and used individual gratin bowls to cook it in. It still turned out wonderfully well, I just decreased the cooking time a bit. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe. Made for Potluck tag.
  3. This is so easy & delicious! It's blueberry season here, & this is a great way to use them. I omitted the almonds, otherwise made as posted. I highly recommend serving with the vanilla ice cream- Berry Heaven!
  4. My new favorite summertime dessert! I had some blueberries that needed using and really wanted to make a baked dessert but didn't want to turn on the oven for that long - voila! This was just perfect. I doubled the amount of topping and used blueberries and raspberries. Thanks for posting!
  5. This was really good. I followed the recipe to a T. The topping was kind-of overtaken by the bubbling up of the fruit so it wasn't as attractive as a standard crisp but it still tasted great. Thanks for the recipe!
