Who needs a great seasonal blueberry dessert recipe?? I know I did and so I made the PERFECT blueberry crisp! And you can make it even better with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Start with fresh beautiful blueberries and toss them with a little flour and sugar. Then make my favorite crisp topping of oatmeal, brown sugar, butter, and flour for the best crispy crumbly topping. Baked to perfection this blueberry crisp is going to be a new family favorite!
What is a Crisp?
A crisp is a simple summer fruit dessert that features fruit baked with a topping typically made of flour, oats, butter, and brown sugar. Topped with ice cream, whipped cream, or cool whip these fruit desserts never fail to please everyone!
Are Crisps and Crumbles the same? What’s the difference?
Crisp toppings are the same as crumble toppings, bascially flour, brown suagr, and butter BUT oats are added to make the topping “crisp.” We always had crisps growing up but I enjoy a crumble too! It’s summetime and desserttime so there’s no time to be picky!
How do you thicken up the fruit in a crisp?
If you JUST add fruit to a baking dish and bake it the results will be very juicy. You NEED something to thicken up the juices. You can use flour or corn starch for the job!
In this recipe I use flour because it’s my go to for crisps. I like the way it works, and tastes.
BUT if you don’t have enough flour you can use cornstarch. Simply replace the flour mixed with the berries by half the amount of cornstarch. So for this recipe 3 TBSP of flour would be replaced with 1 1/2 TBSP of corn starch.
Can I use frozen blueberries in this blueberry crisp?
I used fresh blueberries in this version of the recipe. BUT you can use frozen blueberries in this crisp. Just use them straight from the freezer do not thaw them.
Do I use quick oats or old fashioned rolled oats??
You can use either or in this recipe! The quick oats are chopped up a little bit to make them quick cooking. Old fashioned oats are thicker and not chopped. Either version of rolled oats will work.
