Mini Blueberry Crisps

I’m on my way to Victoria, British Columbia tomorrow for my uncle’s wedding, so I won’t be updating on Friday. I feel like I just unpacked my suitcase from Comic-Con! Next week I will be back to my usual schedule, so stick it out with me! I’m really excited to go to Canada, though. My mom is Canadian and my uncle and my grandmother still live up there. It’s like the secret utopia of the world!

I love blueberries, as you can see! Like I said before, I’ve been trying to find ways to use up the bounty of summer fruits available during the summer months, and when I stumbled upon a recipe for mini cherry pies, I decided that I needed to try it with blueberries! The result was a tiny, buttery, crumbly dessert filled with sweet, juicy blueberries. The crust is incredible delicious (you can definitely tell there’s some butter in it) and the cinnamon-oatmeal combination goes surprisingly well with the blueberries. The best part about these little crisps are that they are insanely easy to make and come together very quickly. They can be served immediately, warm, or cold (I prefer cold). Go ahead and make these, you won’t regret it!

    I made these last night and they’re absolutely delicious! The topping has always been my favorite part of a crisp and using it as a crust was a wonderful idea! I didn’t have blueberries in my fridge so I used white nectarines tossed with some honey and lemon juice. I also forgot to bake the crusts first but it held together fine. My boyfriend loved them and immediately went for seconds! :]

    I tried these today and they are so tasty! Mine were a little crumbly (maybe I needed to get the butter mixed better). They were be so good with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream!

    i have had this recipe in a folder on my computer for forever. the grocery had blueberries on sale this week so i figured it was time to make them. they are awesome! i had the same problem as amanda- mine kept crumbling apart. but that just let my dog enjoy them too- he licked up the crumbs and went looking for more :)

    • Sydney says:

      Ellie: They were a bit crumby when I made them, too, but still buttery, which is all that matters, right? :) I’m glad that you found a solution for the crumbs.

    When I made these, I felt that there wasn’t enough crust mixture, so I made extra. I would recomend that to other people as well. It seems to work well. Lov’d em! THANKS!

    I made these in just six muffin cups, so there was plenty of topping. I also used a lot more blueberries. Before I put the blueberries in however, I added a sour cream, sugar, and cinnamon mix (3/4 cup sour cream, two tsp sugar, couple dashes cinnamon) to each crisp. Cooked it as directed. They smelled so good!
