The other day I was flipping through the June issue of Martha Stewart's magazine, when a blueberry crisp recipe caught my eye. It really sounded delicious, and so I thought I would give it a try. I really didn't want to drive into town to go to the store to get the ingredients, so I improvised a little bit. I had recently purchased a bag of frozen mixed berries from Costco (raspberries, blueberries, and marionberries), so thought I would use those since I had them on hand. The dessert came together quick, and was really delicious!!
Mixed Berry Crisp
6 cups of frozen Rader's Farms Nature's Mixed Berries from Costco
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon plus 1 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. coarse salt
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. coarse salt
3 oz. (6 T) unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 375 deg. Mix filling ingredients together and transfer to an 8 inch square baking dish.
For topping, combine flour, oats, baking powder, and salt. Cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Stir dry ingredients into butter and sugar mixture. Mix topping ingredients well. Sprinkle over filling. Bake until bubbling in center and brown on top (approximately 1 hour). Cool on rack for 30 minutes before serving. Yum!!!
