This Blackberry Crisp is pretty ah-mazing! Juicy, lightly sweetened blackberries topped with a buttery, oatmeal crispy topping. It’s definitely a winner!
I sometimes go a little overkill when it comes to buying berries. I love them all. But one can only eat so many berries on her own, so I usually end up freezing a bunch. I noticed the other day my freezer was getting pretty full of berries (and is also in need of some major defrosting) so over the weekend I made a blackberry crisp and can I just say it was spectacular! I love fruit crisps made with any kind of fruit. They are the perfect fall dessert and always make your house smell amazing while they’re baking.Juicy, delicious blackberries, just lightly sweetened then topped with this amazing buttery, crispy, brown sugary oatmeal topping. . . it’s heaven! I’m completely positive I would be content just eating the topping and nothing else (I ♡ crumble toppings). This is super simple to make and comes together in no time at all. The best part is you don’t have to use a pastry blender to mix the crumble topping because you use super softened butter so it stirs together so easily.
Top this off with some vanilla ice cream (or whipping cream) and oh my heck you are in for a treat!
Oh yeah, one more thing, I was out of vanilla ice cream, but had some of my homemade lemon ice cream in the freezer so that’s what we ate this with and oh my heck it was fabulous!! The lemon ice cream with the blackberries is definitely a winning combination.
- 3 1/2 cups frozen blackberries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 3/4 cup flour
- 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray a small baking dish or pan (I used a 7-inch round cake pan)
In a medium bowl, toss blackberries with sugar and cornstarch. Pour into prepared pan.
In another medium bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, and softened butter, mix until well combined and is slightly "clumpy." (You can also do this in an electric mixer, just combine ingredients on low speed).
Evenly spread oatmeal mixture over berries.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until topping begins to turn golden brown.
