How to make blackberry crisp
First, gather your ingredients.
For tastiest results, always use the best quality ingredients you have access to.
For making this blackberry crisp recipe, you will need the following ingredients:
- fresh blackberries
- granulated white sugar
- all purpose flour divided
- old fashioned oats, uncooked
- brown sugar
- walnuts, chopped (pecans or almonds make a good substitute)
- cooking spray
Making the filling
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a medium mixing bowl, add the blackberries, granulated white sugar and half the flour.
And stir together until everything is well-combined, and the blackberries are well-coated in the flour and sugar. It will look like this.
The topping for the crisp is a mixture of brown sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon, salt and walnuts.
Two tablespoons of butter binds the topping ingredients all together.
Here is a tip: I find that using clean hands to mix in the butter works best. 🙌🏻Why? The warmth from your hands softens the butter, and it combines into the rest of the ingredients better. I just kind of keep squeezing the butter chunks until the topping resembles large crumb-y chunks.
Assembling blackberry crisp
Next, I spoon the blackberry mixture into some little ramekins(<- Amazon affiliate links), and then I just top it with the crumble mixture.
