Easy Berry Crisp

Easy Berry Crisp is one of my favorite fall and winter desserts. Use fresh or frozen berries, and make sure to serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!

I LOVE baking a creating, but hours making messes in the kitchen also often means hours cleaning up those messes, or watching them sit there until someone takes pity on me and helps a girl out.

Either way though, sometimes the time – It just gets away from me.

If you are anything like me, try this awesome easy berry crisp.

You don’t even REALLY have to measure this. I mean – you CAN, but it isn’t completely necessary.

You just toss enough frozen berries in a pie plate to fill it up, slightly heaping. Then pour a cup or two of sugar in over the berries. If you want to be fancy, use equal parts raw sugar and white sugar.

Top it with a quick crisp which is literally just equal parts butter, brown sugar, flour, and oats with a dash of cinnamon. You can use a food processor, or if you don’t feel like dirtying the dishes, just use your hands and dive in there.

Top it, bake it, and serve it with a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, or sweetened whip cream.
