Blueberry Nectarine Crisp

Blueberries are a hot commodity in our house. I can buy a 1 pound container and it doesn’t last more than a few days. That is because I have a 2 1/2 year old that just can’t get enough of them. Fresh or frozen. He eats a couple bowls a day. So the other day when I was at the grocery store and they were having a huge sale on blueberries I stocked up. I stocked up so that my little man would have plenty of snacks but I also stocked up so that I could make a blueberry dessert. Because well…why not?

Crisp. Cobbler. Pie.

The world of fruit desserts is full of deliciousness. I am, however, a fan of crisps. Cobblers have a little too much bread. Pie crusts are just OK. Crisps, on the other hand, oh I am a sucker for a good crisp. The topping is what gets it for me. The crisp, crumbly, buttery topping. I could eat it by the spoonful.

In the fall apple crisps rule but in the summer it’s all about berries and stone fruit. They work so well together. In this recipe I chose to use two of our favorite fruits: blueberries and nectarines. The blueberries are a little tart, the nectarines sweet and juicy and when they are cooked together with a little brown sugar and topped with that buttery crisp topping I love so much, they make beautiful music together. It is the perfect summer dessert , friends, and I am happy to share it with you today.

    Made this for dessert tonight….my husband will not stop raving about it! It was so light and delicious that it could be in a five star restaurant (according to my happy hubby). He said I should enter it in a contest…thinking it was one of my own recipes. Props to you for this mouthwatering recipe and thank you so much for sharing it.
