Blackberry Crisp

I have many fond memories picking blackberries with my Nana. I would help her pick until I had a run in with a spider, then I would be done for the day. She would make jam and her delicious blackberry cobbler.

Unfortunately for me, she was one of those grandmothers that had a ton of amazing recipes and she never wrote them down. I remember asking her what was in her broccoli cheddar soup once and she said, “I don’t know, cream?” Thanks, Nana.

Now, here I am, I want to make blackberry picking and blackberry cobbler memories with my daughter and I don’t have a good recipe.Blackberry CrispSo, of course, my only option is to look online. I couldn’t find a good cobbler recipe, but I found a crisp I thought I would try.

I adjusted it a bit by the ingredients I had and it turned out great, I would happily serve it to guests. If I were to ever have a party. But I won’t, so my husband, daughter, and I will eat it.

You will need:

5 cups of blackberries (the blackberry picking was mainly done by a 3 year old, so we had closer to half the amount needed.)
3/4 cup of flour, divided
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup butter

1. Toss the blackberries with 1/4 cup of flour. Set aside.

2. Mix remaining ingredients. I used cold butter so I cubed it, then to mix thoroughly, I used my hands, (a pastry cutter would have been handy…)Blackberry Crisp3. Crumble the topping on the blackberries. Blackberry Crisp4. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.Blackberry Crisp

Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream.

For Blackberry Season, there is nothing quite like a delicious Blackberry Crisp topped off with vanilla ice cream!!

It wasn’t my Grandma’s recipe, but it was still pretty freaking good! And it also works great with raspberries or blueberries!!

    My mother-in-law is the same way! Every time I ask her for a recipe I get vague answers. It’s so frustrating. Your blackberry crisp looks delicious.

    Yum! I love any type of crisp-type dessert. I’ve made something similar with blueberries.
