Blueberry Crisp

This blueberry crisp recipe is wonderful. I got a ton of yummy blueberries from costco the other day and wanted to make a dessert with them. I came across this recipe on the food network site. It's from the Neelys. I've never made anything from them before and in fact I have never seen their show but it got good reviews so I tried it. It is delicious! I halved the recipe and didn't have the right size pan so it looks kinda funny but tastes great. I would also double the crumb topping next time. It seems like the fruit to topping ratio was off.  


  • 6 cups blueberries, rinsed and lightly dried
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Pinch salt

Topping Mixture:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 stick room temperature unsalted butter, cubed
  • Whipped cream, for topping
  • Ice cream, for topping


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Toss blueberries, cornstarch, sugar and a pinch of salt together in a bowl.
Combine flour, oats, brown and white sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and pecans in a bowl. Add butter and pinch into chunks. Mix until it looks crumbly.
Add the blueberries into a 2-quart baking dish. Top evenly with the crumb mixture. Bake for 40 minutes. Serve with ice cream and whipped cream.
