Grandma Pat’s Blackberry Crisp

Summer on the farm.  :)

Summer on the farm. 🙂

This recipe is my Mom’s recipe for Apple Crisp – but we use it for all fruits. Super easy, delicious … and maybe not too fattening??

1 stick margarine
1/2 cup flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup quick oats
dash of cinnamon, optional

Use a pastry blender to cut margarine in to other ingredients (or two forks … or your hands (please wash ’em first). Sprinkle topping on top of your fruit (no sugar on fruit needed). Bake at 350 degrees for ~ 30 min or until topping is browned and fruit is bubbly.


One of these days I’ll update you on the farm follies … but today, I just made the back of my legs sore, bending over, weeding pumpkin hills. I tried not to turn the back-end to the road too often. Nobody wants that sight that early in the morning!

    I love blackberries, never thought to bake them in a crisp. Where did you say you live? I have GPS and am on the way!
    We live on a busy road, so I try to take care of the “view,” too. No sense in scaring folks.

  2. I love easy recipes like these – they make things so much more doable.

    As for the back-view – I figure the neighbours need something to talk about occasionally.

    • My sister once called me “queen of easy recipes.” Obviously, I got it from my mom! Re: the back-view … maybe it will get less frightening if I keep working. My muscles have sure been protesting the work!

  3. I made this today with fresh peaches and it was so good! Thanks for the recipe!
