What makes this crisp extra good is the topping. My friend actually had to ask for more berries to eat with her remaining crisp!
FOR THE BERRY FILLING:
- 5 cups strawberries, sliced
- 3 cups blueberries
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 3 tbsp cornstarch or flour
- 1 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup old fashioned or quick cooking oats
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2/3 butter, cubed and softened
*Note: If you prefer a higher berry to crisp ratio, cut the topping ingredients in half.
Heat oven to 350. In a medium pot mash 2 cups of the strawberries. Stir in the cornstarch/flour and sugar. Over medium heat cook, stirring constantly until it boils. Continue to boil for 1 min. Stir in the remaining strawberries and blueberries. Pour the berry mixture into a greased baking dish. In a medium bowl or stand mixer, mix the brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon, salt and butter with a fork or paddle attachment until crumbly. Sprinkle over berry mixture and bake for 30 min. Remove from oven and serve. Don’t forget to add a side of vanilla ice cream;)
