Blueberry Crisp
(source unknown)

3 pints fresh blueberries 1/2 C. sugar Juice and finely grated zest from 1 lemon 3 T. all-purpose flour

For the topping: 1 C. all-purpose flour 1 C. (packed) light brown sugar 2/3 C. rolled oats 1/2 t. cinnamon 1/4 t. salt 10 T. cold, unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Butter a 9 x 13-inch glass baking dish.

Mix the blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, zest and the 3 tablespoons flour in a large bowl.

To make the topping, combine the flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Add the butter and pulse repeatedly for 2-3 seconds at a time, just until the mixture is clumpy.

Transfer the berries to the baking dish. Spread the topping evenly over the fruit. Bake for 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

I like the way they make the topping in this one. Was looking for a dessert for tomorrow and they only reason I discounted the apple crisp is because I hate rubbing the ingredients together with my fingers, but I could use this topping. Will have to check for ingredients. Thanks Kim.

I have trouble making crumb topping with my fingers so I always use a potato masher. Works pretty good...
