There are very few dishes that I think are just perfect. I love so many things and appreciate a myriad of flavors but I often have the urge to tweak just one last thing or try something new in its place next time. Ahoy! Not with this recipe! This goes on my list of perfection. A favorite from my mom’s old Junior League cookbook, this Blueberry Crisp recipe is found in the “children’s section,” I suppose only because it is so easy to make. I daresay, this dessert would please teething toddlers, picky children, brooding teenagers, sweet-toothed adults and octogenerians alike.

I highly suggest serving the warm crisp alongside a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The warm berries burst and turn the bowl a crimsony-purple-magenta, which against the backdrop of cool, creamy vanilla ice cream, is enough to make you want to sing from a mountain top.

Blueberry Crisp

3 cups fresh, in-season blueberries
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2/3 cup flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter (salted or add a pinch or two of salt)

Fill a pie plate with blueberries and sprinkle with lemon juice. Blend flour sugar and butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over the berries. Bake 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve warm in a bowl with vanilla ice cream.

    makes me think of ice cream.. I don’t know why… also I have been messing around with crisps where you bake the crisp separately . it has wonderful body and snap. great for apples too.. and ice cream?

    Too many people fool around too much with innovation and try to add exotic ingredients and whatnot, but I love the simple things like this kind of dessert. Perfection indeed.

    wow. i just made this for my boyfriend and he was thrilled with it. it was very attractive and tasty – pure summer. it really topped off our farmers market dinner of sauted corn with basil and onion, pan-fried local fluke, and crisp green beans. thanks for the inspiration and of course the recipe, caroline!

    If you find it a bit maddening to follow the daily fluctuations of the scale even though you are
    eating properly, pick three days of the week on which you will always weigh yourself (for example, Monday, Wednesday, and
    Friday). Authorities inside the area will need to have an intensive understanding of
    laboratory and labeling techniques, infection security precautions, appropriate blood attract approaches to the
    elderly and for infants and even more. Hence, broccoli is a must-add
    ingredient in your vegetarian weight loss diet.

    If with the classic version, you only get to play the same game over and over again,
    with Simon 2 game, you get to play more games with more challenges ad
    game highlights. This means to sell your mods would be considered the same as pirating the game itself.

    The nature of Reddit’s platform makes it possible — through great and creative effort, it appears — to give users a gift of the unexpected, rather than deriving humor from humiliation.

    You don’t have to hit the gym for two and three hours each day to lose weight, but it does help to squeeze in 30 minutes of physical activity each day. Withdrawal from levothyroxine can be done but it takes 6 weeks of withdrawal for the remaining thyroid tissue to be completely starved. Now, the average healthy amount people are supposed to lose is 2 pounds per week.

    Break your 3 normal main meals into 5 smaller
    portion sizes – morning, snack, lunch, snack, dinner.

    It’s old news that tracking food intake could lead to
    losing a few pounds [2]. When you’re about to start on your weight loss plan, it’s a good idea to think about your end goal and
    chunk it down into smaller goals.
