A Favorite Summer Dessert

  • Light and delicious, berry crisp is easy to make.
  • Prep the topping ahead of time and store it in the freezer, when a craving hits, sprinkle it over fruit and bake.
  • Enjoy fruit crisp warm or chilled. It’s delish fresh from the oven or the next day straight from the fridge; the topping stays crisp.

Ingredients for Berry Crisp

Berries Use a mix of fresh berries including strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and/or raspberries . No time for prep? Simply toss in a bag of frozen triple berry medley!

Streusel ToppingMix and match the topping ingredients for more or less sweetness, switch pecans for walnuts and use your favorite gluten-free baking mix for the flour. For best results, use rolled oats instead of instant so they keep their firm texture in the topping.

VariationsSprinkle on homemade granola or add a dash of pumpkin pie spice or homemade cinnamon sugar.

Frozen Fruit Fix

Berry crisp can be made with frozen berries. If baking frozen fruit, add 15 minutes of cooking time and add 1 additional tablespoon of flour.

If the topping starts to brown too soon, gently cover the dish with foil (don’t seal the foil, just lay it over top)

    1. The all-purpose flour helps thicken the crisp a little from the juices of the frozen berries so I don’t know for sure if it would work. If you try it I would love to hear how it turns out Debbie!

  1. When you use “rolled oats” in your strawberry rhubarb crisp.. do you use quick oats, or regular oatmeal or something different?

    1. Hi Leisha, rolled oats are a type of oat you can purchase at most grocery stores. They sometimes go by the name of old-fashioned or whole oats! Hope that helps!

  2. Have you ever assembled the whole thing and then frozen it to cook later? I’m thinking of doing this for a freezer-ready dessert.

    1. I haven’t tried it but I do think it’s a great idea! I might put the topping in a freezer bag and freeze them together and then sprinkle it on just before baking (to avoid it getting mushy). I would love to hear how it works out for you!

    1. Yes, this will work well with fresh fruit, I’ve made it that way often. Depending on what type of fruit you are using you may need to increase/decrease the flour within the fruit to get the right consistency.
