Blueberry Crisp From The Berkshires Farm Table CookbookPhoto Credit : Amy Traverso
This recipe from The Berkshires Farm Table Cookbook (Countryman Press, 2020), is a classic fruit crisp with a topping of brown sugar, oats, whole wheat flour and butter. A little bit of lemon juice and zest in the filling gives the berries extra zing, but you can eliminate the lemon if you prefer. There’s no easier way to enjoy the fresh fruits of summer!
Preheat oven to 350℉. Lightly butter an 8-inch square baking dish. Place the dish on a sheet pan to catch any drips.
Prepare the topping: Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Combine the brown sugar, whole wheat flour, and rolled oats in a medium bowl. Add the butter to the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Set aside.
Prepare the filling: Gently but thoroughly combine the blueberries, granulated sugar, lemon zest and juice, and cornstarch in a large bowl. Pour the berry filling mixture into the prepared baking dish and crumble the topping evenly over the fruit. Pack the topping down gently until uniformly thick.
Bake for 1 hour, or until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is golden. Transfer to a wire rack to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
