Tasty Tuesday on a Thursday: Blueberry Crisp
It's been a while since I've done a Tasty Tuesday post. Technically today's post should be called Tasty Thursday, but I don't have Tasty Thursday as a label on my blog. :)
Yesterday was a beautiful day for blueberry picking. Alexa and I picked eight cups, which seemed to take forever because it is nearing the end of the blueberry growing season here. So, what do you do with that many blueberries? Make blueberry crisp of course (and freeze the remainder to use another time).
I've been using this recipe, from Cooking Light magazine, for many, many years. It is soooo good. Let's just say the three of us finished half of it tonight. Just sayin'.
6 c. blueberries
2 T. sugar
1 T. flour
1 T. lemon juice
2/3 c. flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. oats
3/4 t. cinnamon
4 1/2 T. margarine or butter, cold, cut into small pieces
Heat oven to 375°F. You'll need an 11x7" baking dish (ungreased).
Gently combine all filling ingredients in a large bowl. Transfer to baking dish.
Combine flour, brown sugar, oats and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Cut in margarine/butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Sprinkle topping over fruit.
Bake 30 minutes or until bubbly.
