I enjoy the restaurant-like experience of serving individual desserts. It’s actually better because you’ve prepared it and are serving it at home. These sweet little blueberry crisp crumbles can be make ahead so they are ready to bake when you are entertaining. All you need to do is preheat the oven and bake them.

Our blueberry crisp is sweetened with a little bit of maple sugar. Feel free to add more or less to suit your taste. If you want to go all-out, add a dollop of whip or ice cream.

Start with fresh, local fruit. You may use a mixture of berries if you’d like. Toss them in lemon juice and some zest and then add some maple syrup. The arrow root (or corn starch) helps to thicken the fruit juice. You’ll need that to make sure the fruit is syrupy and not watery.

You just can’t go wrong with maple syrup, cinnamon, and butter – YUM!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Grocery Store List

  • 2 or 3 cups of blueberries
  • oatmeal
  • maple syrup
  • arrow root or corn starch
  • butter
  • all-purpose flour
  • lemon
Yield: 6 individual servings
