Blueberry Raspberry Crisp

So wanting to do something "ordinary" for Hubbie yesterday - just to say I love you - I made a blueberry-raspberry crisp that I recently saw in Family Circle magazine....which was quite yummy, or so I have determined since the dish is more than half empty. I know it sure did smell delicious while it was baking. I love using all the fresh fruits from the farmer's markets this time of year.

Here is the recipe - in case you want to show someone a little love today:)

Blueberry-Raspberry Crisp

Berry Mixture
4 cups blueberries
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
juice and zest from one large orange
2 cups raspberries

3/4 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick cold butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 - Heat oven to 350
2 - Berry Mixture: In large bowl, mix together blueberries, 1/2 cup light brown sugar, flour, orange juice and zest. Place into 6-8 cup baking dish. Evenly scatter raspberries over the top.
3 - Topping: In another large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in oats and pecans.
4 - Sprinkle topping evenly over berry filling. Bake at 350 for 55 minutes, until bubbly. Cool 15 minutes before serving.


  1. I like your new "look" on your site. I think you must remodel it often.

    I may need to do some updates myself.

    Have you got a site that you go to for backgrounds? Any other suggestions for making my site cuter?

    Thanks for always stopping by to encourage me!

    I hope you are doing well today!


  2. That sounds really delicious and what a nice way to let your hubby know you're thinking of him!

  3. My hubby and future son-in-law like fruity desserts. I'll have to show them some love!!!
