Oh, you’re going to love this very simple Summer time dessert that is perfect for company and a BBQ. I love cobblers and pies but they sometimes take time if you make your own pie crust type. This blackberry crisp is put together in 10 minutes, that is as long as it take your oven to pre-heat.
4 cups fresh blackberries (can use frozen but let them thaw with the sugar mixture for 20 min.)
1/2 cup sugar
1 T. cornstarch
Mix these ingredients together and pour into a shallow dish but wide if you can, the berries will cook down faster. I used a 10 in. round stoneware pan. Now for the topping..mmmmm
1 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats or quick
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 ts. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. ground all-spice
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chilled butter cut up
Put all these ingredients into a food processor or in a mixing bowl.Pulse the food processor until you get a nice chunky consistency. With your fingers spread out the topping over the berries. Put this into the oven at 375 degrees for 30 to 40 min. and viola you are done.
Add some of your favorite ice cream or whipping cream and you have a wonderful treat that your family and friends are sure to love.
