Ingredients

Filling

  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 6 cups (852 g) mixed berries

Topping

  • ¾ cups (90 g) all purpose flour
  • ¾ cups (99 g) old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup (107 g) packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup (50 g) granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon table salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick, 113 g) unsalted butter, melted

Instructions

  • Preheat and prepare the pans. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 450oF. Spray a 9x9 baking dish.
  • Make the filling. Toss cornstarch, sugar, cinnamon, and berries in a large mixing bowl and pour into baking dish.
  • Make topping. In the same mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, brown sugar, and salt in bowl. Stir in butter until mixture is thoroughly moistened and crumbly. Sprinkle over the berry mixture.
  • Bake the crisp. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Cool slightly before enjoying. Eat with whipped cream,

Notes

  • Storage: You can store leftovers covered in the fridge for 4 days. You can reheat portions in the microwave or in the a preheated 350F oven for 15-20 minutes until heated through.
  • Make Ahead: make a crisp in advance but you want to keep the filling and topping separate. Bake the filling and topping separate. And when ready to serve, then combine the two and reheat for 15 minutes in a 350°F oven.
  • Freezing: I would freeze the filling and topping separate. And then when ready to bake combine as normal and bake as directed. You may need to add on a few minutes of baking time.
  • Cornstarch: Using cornstarch is key so your fruit crisp doesn't end up runny. You can also use flour if you don't have any on hand. 
  • Berries: You want to use a combination of 6 cups of berries- the assortment is up to you. But I like using 2 cups strawberries, 2 cups blueberries, 1 cup raspberries and 1 cup blackberries. Raspberries and blackberries have a lot of seeds so I tend to use less of those. If you are frozen berries I do not thaw them but simply stir them in. The crisp may require a few minutes extra of baking time.
