Reviews for Blackberry Crisp
"We harvest plenty of blackberries from our garden every summer so I am often looking for desserts that use them. I think this is my husband's favorite blackberry dessert. I usually double the recipe (using about 5 cups of blackberries) and bake it in an 8x8-inch baking pan. I plan to use the topping for other fruit crisps too."
"I have been making this recipe for a few years now and it has become a must have with all of our friends. They practically beg me to make it :) I've used this recipe as well as a base recipe and just mixed or used different fruit altogether! Thanks for sharing!"
"I didn't like the recipe. I cooked it for 10 minutes longer and the crisp did not taste done. It did not have enough sugar or corn starch in it. I wouldn't make it again without totally changing the amount of sugar, flour, cornstarch and time to cook it."
"I didn't have enough blackberries so I added some blueberries as well and it was super yummy. My family wasted no time eating it up."
"I love this recipe. It was the perfect way to use up all of the fresh blueberries I picked with my family.For a more detailed review, I have posted about it on my blog, healthy Living Revelationshttp://www.healthylivingrevelations.com/2013/08/28/homemade-blueberry-crisp/"
"Absolutely delicious!I did triple the fruit, ( and all that wentwith it, sugar,corn starch, water and lemon juice)And then I quadrupled the oat flour mixture:)I was feeding a crowd!"
"I love this recipe! I have made it several times and it is easy as well as delicious. The hardest part is picking the berries. I always use old fashioned oats because that is what I buy and it works just fine. I have multiplied the recipe and taken it to events and it is always a big hit. The ice cream is optional because the crisp is wonderful all by itself. Make it! Just do it!"
"Blackberries are my favorite summer treat. They are worth the difficult picking and cuts from thorns. I really like this because the taste of the berries is not spoiled with too much sugar. It has just the right amount."
"the only thing i would change is put little more crisp topping other then that it was PERFECT!"
"I made this recipe with my eleven year old niece (she did most of it) and we were delighted that it was a good to eat as it was easy to make. We used long-cooking oats as that's what I had and it was great!"
