Berry Crisp

Here’s a recipe for a quick and easy crisp that can be used with a variety of fruit. It works well with everything from apples and peaches to berries.

Since I love raspberries (and it was what I had at the 11th hour when I decided to throw this together) that is what I am featuring today.

Start with your basic ingredients.

Mix a heaping spoon of cornstarch and some sugar into the berries. Let this rest for about 10 minutes. Note – I am using frozen berries, so just pretend they are fresh. They’d be so much prettier!


Mix up your crumb topping while the berries are resting and then sprinkle it on top of the berries. Bake and try to keep yourself from self-destructing while waiting for the crisp to get done.


Enjoy the finished crisp warm with a scoop of melting ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Berry Crisp

3 cups of raspberries (you can use any type of berry or fruit)

2/3 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon corn starch

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup oatmeal

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup butter – softened

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix corn starch and granulated sugar with berries. Let rest for about 10 minutes.  I mix this right in the baking dish – using a square 8-inch pan. While the berries are doing their thing, mix the remaining ingredients together with a pastry blender, food processor or a fork. You want the mixture to have a crumbly texture. Sprinkle on the berries and bake until fruit bubbles and topping is a golden brown.

Serve warm with ice cream or whipped topping.
