Blueberry Crisp

  (Serves 4 to 6)

Here is a great summer dessert from Saveur! They say, "If you are lucky enough to find yourself with and overabundance of blueberries, this easy-to-make crisp is a delicious way to prepare them."


6 cups (3 pints) blueberries, washed and stemmed

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1-1/4 cups flour

2/3 cup brown sugar

pinch of salt

10 tbsp. cold butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toss together washed, stemmed blueberries and granulated sugar in a bowl, then transfer to a medium baking dish.

Combine four, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt in another bowl. Using two knives or a pastry cutter, work cold butter, cut into pieces, into flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle mixture evenly over blueberries.

Bake until berries are bubbling and topping is golden, about 50 minutes. Allow to cool for 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature with heavy cream spooned over top. (Vanilla ice cream is good, too.)
