This easy blackberry crisp is loaded with fresh, juicy black berries and a buttery crumbly topping. Great on it’s own or with vanilla ice cream!
When it comes to fruit desserts, I love making crisps. I love making crisps because they are so easy to make. No need to make pie crusts and wait for it to chill. All you need to do to make a fruit crisp is mix fruit with sugar, top it with a crumble topping and bake.
And not only are they easy to make, they are delicious too! The perfect combination of sweet and buttery. The juicy and sweet fruit on bottom and the crumbly buttery topping are a match made in heaven.
Let’s talk about what you’ll need to make it.
When you’re making a crisp, there are essentially two parts: the fruit and the crisp topping.
For the fruit filling you’ll need:
For the Crisp Topping:
As I mentioned before, I absolutely love making crisps because they are so easy to make. There is no rolling out pie dough. No need to worry about making a lattice top. None of that! Crisps are super easy. Follow along with these step by step photos and instructions:
STEP #1: Combine the blackberries with granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour and vanilla. Gently mix so that all of the blackberries are coated. Place in a 9 inch pie pan.
STEP #2: Make the crumble topping by combining all ingredients together in a large bowl. Use a pastry cutter or your hands to work the mixture until it’s crumbly.
STEP #3: Sprinkle the topping on top of the blackberries. Bake. Cool before serving.
Store leftover blackberry crisp in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Warm in the microwave for 30 seconds.
This blackberry crisp is great on its own and even better if it is served with some vanilla ice cream on top.
