Raspberry and Blueberry Crisp

fruit crisp

One thing the Northwest does right is berries! You name it – we’ve got it. Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, marionberries, tayberries and even loganberries. And I know there are more I haven’t even named. My oldest son’s name is Logan – I teased my husband I wanted to name him after my father Barrie – therefore he would have been Logan Barrie (loganberry) He didn’t go for it!

Yesterday I shared a fun Mason Jar Picnic idea and the dessert I took on the picnic was today’s recipe for Raspberry and Blueberry Crisp.  We love any kind of berry crisp at our house.  It is fun to try different flavor combinations of berries.

I of course had to make it in a mason jar.

Berry Crisp

I used the half pint size jars and they were the perfect personal serving of berry crisp.  When it is warm the crisp can be a bit funny so eating it out of the jar was perfect! It of course can be made in a 9 x 13 pan also but mason jars are so much more fun, and cuter too!

I used a combination of raspberries and blueberries but any combination of berries will work.  Add in a bit of sugar of course.

Fill your jars to the top (it will cook down)

Then mix up your topping.  This is a basic crisp recipe I have had around for years.   It is also yummy on top of apples  too.  It is a combination of butter, flour, oats,  brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.  I love the little bit of crunch it gives to the dessert.

Sprinkle the topping over the berries.  Be generous.  I think the topping is the best part!  It will also cook down into the berries.

Bake and then eat warm or cool – which ever you prefer.

I prefer my crisp with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

And one of the best parts of being a food blogger?  Getting to eat the props!

Berry Crisp

I halved the recipe and it filled 6 half pint mason jars.   A full recipe will make a 9 x 13.

This recipe can be made with any combination of berries – choose your favorites.  If you use frozen berries make sure they are drained well and add some cornstarch into the sugar you put over the berries to help thicken it up because it will make a runnier crisp with frozen berries.

    After looking at (drooling over) many great sounding cobbler-in-a-jar recipes yours seemed perfect for my family. Am modifying to gluten-free with a gf flour blend and gf oats. They will be toted to a picnic tomorrow along with a can of whipped cream (the ice cream might be too runny by the time we get to dessert even in a cooler) and I’m betting they’ll be a hit. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
