Apple Blueberry Crisp

 

Growing up in Canada I’ve had my fair share of fruit crisps over the years.  I have always really enjoyed them since they are light and refreshing and also simple to make and versatile.  The fruit used in the filling may be easily changed depending on what fruit is in season.  This Apple Blueberry Crisp is one of my favourite fruit crisps.  The Honeycrisp apples and blueberries in the filling are a great flavour combination and the brown sugar, oat topping provides the perfect crunch.

 

 

Tips for Making Perfect Crisp

 

  1. Do not over-mix the topping:  Over-mixing the crumb topping after the butter has been added will give it a tough texture.
  2. Serve with ice cream or Chantilly cream:  Although this crisp is delicious on its own, it is great served with a scoop of high-quality vanilla ice cream or Chantilly cream.
