March 4, 2020:Blueberry Crisp
March 7th, 2020 by Katekoster

Even though it was a cold March day, I was in the mood for one of my favorite summer treats: blueberry crisp, and since I had the day off school, I decided to make it.  Usually, we pick the blueberries at a blueberry farm upstate but this time I picked them up at Trader Joe’s.  Along with blueberries, the ingredients you need are sugar, flour, rolled oats, soft butter and little salt.  The most important (and frustrating) part of cooking is that the butter needs to be soft, which takes at least 45 minutes before you start baking.


First step is to preheat the oven to 375 degrees

Then it’s time to make the filling.  Rinse the berries and then combine:

  • 6 cups berries
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon coarse salt

Pour that into an 8 x 8 cooking pan


Next step is to make the topping.  Mix together the following ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup flour
  • 3/4 Cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon coarse salt

Then cream together the following (either in mixer or by hand)

  • 6 Tablespoons softened butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar

Add the flour and oats mix to the butter and sugar and combine to make lumpy topping (use your hands if necessary)

Spread over the berry mix, put in the oven and cook for about 45 minutes.   The waiting is hard (Koko loves blueberries so she lay down in the kitchen to wait as well.)

Berry mix should be bubbling and topping crispy and light brown.  Served warm is great (but cold for breakfast is pretty good too!)
