Blueberry Crisp Recipe

My mother-in-law and I had dinner over the weekend and she made a great summer meal full of fresh ingredients.  The crown jewel in a simple, yet delicious seasonal meal was this blueberry crisp she pulled out for dessert.  It's a Martha Stewart recipe that my mother-in-law (and I) tweaked just slightly.


Ingredients
Filling:
- 3 pints of blueberries
-1/2 cup of sugar
- 1 Tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp salt

Topping:
- 3/4 cup of flour
- 1/2 cup of rolled oats (If you want a lot of topping, increase to 3/4 cup)
- 1/2 cup of chopped nuts (my mother-in-law and I used walnuts)
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, soft
- 1/3 cup of sugar

1) Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.


2) Combine all filling ingredients together and mix in with the blueberries.  Pour the filling covered blueberries into an 8x8" baking pan, or you can split into two bread loaf pans (I did this.)


3) For the topping, cream together butter and sugar. Combine flour, oats, nuts and baking powder and then add to the butter/sugar mixture.  Pour over the top of the blueberries.


4) Bake for one hour.

5) Serve warm on its own or a la mode.
So happy to have my good camera back for the tasting of this crisp
This is a really simple and delicious crisp.  I like that it is not overly sweet, the tartness of the berries is definitely apparent in this recipe.  The crunch of the walnuts is a nice twist.   I will be  making this again but will be adding in some ripe peaches!

What are your favorite summer foods?  Peaches, blueberries, corn and tomatoes are my favorites (to name a few) :D
