Simple Mixed Berry Crisp

There are three main reasons for me to make a Simple Mixed Berry Crisp.

  1. I bought too many berries
  2. I don’t have much time
  3. I want to make my Dad happy (he loves crisps!)

Last month I made this mixed berry crisp for my dad’s birthday.  I served it at the end of a BBQ and it was well received!

See what was left when I went to sneak in a second helping (everyone beat me to it!).

The fruit in there is a combination of strawberries and blueberries. You are welcome to use whatever berries you have laying around. Maybe you picked some berries on the side of the road? That sounds romantic. That should have been on my Summer Bucket List.

Without further adieu, here’s a very simple way to pull together a crisp in a short amount of time.

Let’s gather our ingredients:

Let’s take a look at that berry juice. So good scooped on top of ice cream or with a dollop of whipped cream.

Make sure you get a second helping at the same time as everyone else.

Simple Mixed Berry Crisp

serves 4-6

recipe adapted from Epicurious

for the berry mixture

  • 3 cups blueberries
  • 4 cups strawberries, hulled and  sliced
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 heaping tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

for the crisp topping:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, for serving

 

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 9 x 13 baking dish.

Gently combine the berries with the sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice in a medium bowl; place in the prepared 9 x 13 baking dish.

Combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, ground ginger and salt in a bowl. Use a pastry blender or 2 knives to work in the butter until topping resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle topping evenly over the berries.

Bake in the center of the oven until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is golden brown, about 1 hour. Remove the crisp to a rack to cool slightly. Serve in dessert bowls with whipped cream or ice cream.

    Best timing. I had three almost-gone peaches, a handful of strawberries, and a handful of raspberries. Halved this in an 8×8 and getting ready to devour! Thank you Tracy!

    Hi — do you think this would work with frozen berries? My husband came home with a GIANT bag of frozen berries a month ago with the best smoothie intentions. Desperately looking for a way to free up my freezer space beyond smoothies.

    Just made a crisp this weekend with peaches and some “nearly expired” cherries. Came out fantastic, kept me from having to throw out some fruit that would’ve gone bad in a day or two, and my family loved it!

    The recipe I used was from America’s Test Kitchen, but yours has the oats that my husband was missing, so I will try your recipe next!!

    Plenty of free berries around at the moment growing wild so I will make this for my mum. Ty
