Blackberry Crisp

I have many fond memories picking blackberries with my Nana. I would help her pick until I had a run in with a spider, then I would be done for the day. She would make jam and her delicious blackberry cobbler.

Unfortunately for me, she was one of those grandmothers that had a ton of amazing recipes and she never wrote them down. I remember asking her what was in her broccoli cheddar soup once and she said, “I don’t know, cream?” Thanks, Nana.

Now, here I am, I want to make blackberry picking and blackberry cobbler memories with my daughter and I don’t have a good recipe.20140727-221544-80144420.jpgSo, of course, my only option is to look online. I couldn’t find a good cobbler recipe, but I found a crisp I thought I would try.

It turned out great, I would happily serve it to guests. If I were to ever have a party. But I won’t, so my husband, daughter, and I will eat it.

You will need:

5 cups of blackberries (the blackberry picking was mainly done by a 3 year old, so we had closer to half the amount needed.)
3/4 cup of flour, divided
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup butter

1. Toss the blackberries with 1/4 cup of flour. Set aside.

2. Mix remaining ingredients. I used cold butter so I cubed it, then to mix thoroughly, I used my hands, (a pastry cutter would have been handy…)20140727-223130-81090108.jpg3. Crumble the topping on the blackberries. 20140727-223234-81154323.jpg4. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.20140727-223333-81213493.jpgServe warm with a scoop of ice cream.20140727-223521-81321354.jpgIt wasn’t my Grandma’s recipe, but it was still pretty freaking good! Enjoy!
