Blueberry Crisp

Wednesday, May 29, 2013


Finally the weather has changed and summer temperatures are here! With warm weather comes a different variety of recipes I have been meaning to test out.  In the warmer weather I find that my appetite dwindles and I crave cooler meals such as salads and chilled soups. I also do like a good BBQ though but i like to focus on the side dishes and desserts the most! Bean salads, pasta salads, corn on the cob, trifles, grilled vegetables, ahh the list goes on, so many delicious options.  My first summer dessert recipe this year are individual blueberry crisps!  For the fall season I am an apple crisp fan but in the summer I like to use a lot of berries and peaches in dessert recipes. 

This blueberry crisp is very easy to make and you can whip it up within 15 minutes so you’re not slaving in a hot kitchen trying to impress your guests.  It’s a great portion size too since you’re using a ramekin.  What makes this crisp extra special is the addition of white chocolate chips! You can omit this though if you’d like but it really does add some nice flavor to the crisp. This is a great crisp recipe to have around and you can change up the fruit to just about anything, ,mixed berries, peach, rhubarb, etc.  Play around with this one and enjoy!

  22. Mmm...this looks soo yummy! There was rhubarb in the store the other day so I made a crisp with that and apples but the fruit was too moist and it was kinda mushy. I will take your cornstarch approach next time I think :)

  28. This is a wonderful dessert to enjoy in the berry season. :) Can't wait to make it. I agree, when temperatures get higher, I tend to prepare more chilled soup and pasta salad too. That's more soothing than anything else. Thanks for sharing this beautiful recipe.
