These single-serve blackberry crisps are the potential show-stopper in your next party! Make some extra as I am sure your guests will ask for more!
I had a box of frozen blackberries in my freezer and I was not able to make up my mind what to make out of them – a smoothie or a dessert? And at that very right moment I saw a berry crisps recipe in one of the cookbooks and it was looking at me very invitingly!
I couldn’t resist and had to give in! It looked so gorgeous I can’t describe. Like a teenage girl I simply fell for it!
I haven’t made many fruit desserts till now but I am totally for it now that I have started with this super delicious blackberry crisps. I would describe this as a double deal dessert – a crispy and crunchy butter oatmeal topping and the sweet and juicy blackberries underneath. What more could you ask for!
Wait! There is more good news with it. This one is very very simple to make. Trust me! Just 2 bowls and 4 ramekins for each serving. Prepare the blackberries in one bowl and the topping in another. Done!
If you were not too familiar with the fruit desserts like cobblers, crumbles and crisps, you can read up quickly here in the Kitchn! Cobblers are definitely in my to-do list with a high priority quotient. Now I just have to decide on which berries to use! Any suggestions friends?
We all just loved these blackberry crisps. The warm soft texture of the blackberries combined with the chewy oats is an ultimate delight to our mouth. And taste buds too! You just can’t afford to miss these!
