Blackberry Crisp

The 100+ degree days continue here in Texas, and my tea is inside today. I'm having some blackberry crisp and another of my tea subscription.       Even though the tea is in my pretty teacup, I'm transferring it to ice!

This blackberry teacup is a summer favorite of mine.

I took my three oldest granddaughters out for an early birthday celebration for Cissy because soon the girls will be too busy when August rolls around.  Cissy chose a pizza dinner.

Afterwards they wanted to go for frozen yogurt with toppings.

The girls love shopping at Bath and Body Works.  Ella found the area for 75% off and they were excellent shoppers.  I'm happy that they want a good value.

  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine ¼ cup white sugar (depending on sweetness), 2 teaspoons cornstarch (3 teaspoons if using frozen fruit which is generally watery) and ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt.
  3. Toss berries gently with sugar mixture.
  4. Divide the berries into two bowls 10 to 12 oz size, or divide into three 8 ounce bowls.
  5. Combine flour, rolled oats, brown sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Chop 4 tablespoon firm butter into small pieces and cut into the topping mix until the crumble is formed.
  7. Divide the topping over the two-three bowls.

Top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

  1. Good Morning Kitty! Your grand girls are all so adorable and growing up. Love seeing their sweet smiling faces! Your blackberry crisp sounds wonderful and I love your pretty teacup! I can't imagine 100 degree temps for days on end. It's iced tea weather here too for the foreseeable future! Stay cool ♥

  2. Look at you, with your beautiful granddaughters♡ Such a lovely photo♡ And....oh my goodness how they have all grown. How lovely to take them out for pizza and frozen yoghurt in celebration of Cissy's birthday. A special shop at Bath and Body Works, too; so very special. Try and keep cool, lovely Kitty♡

  3. Such happy times with the grand girls Kitty. Thanks for sharing this blackberry crisp recipe. It looks and sounds delicious tasting.
    Stay cool and have a nice week Kitty.

  4. Oh my! I'm already drooling! I SO love blackberries and your crisp looks so tasty. What a wonderful time with your beautiful granddaughters, making more fun memories. Keep cool my friend.

  5. Those girls are adorable, and the picture of all of you at B&B is too cute! It's good to read they're good shoppers. I've had RIley on my mind, have you heard from him at boot camp, or are they restricted?

  6. Oh how fun - my Granddaughter loves that bath place too! What a fun time they had with you and lovely dessert!

  7. What fun for the grandgirls to go out with you! Their smiles and yours say it all.

  8. Aw, so sweet that you got to have that precious time together! God bless you, sweet friend.

  9. The blackberry tea would make a great iced tea! Have you ever tried mixing it with some lemonade?

    I would go for the 75% off section too! Your granddaughters are savvy shoppers. Have you seen the Raspberry Green Tea soap at BBW?

  10. That berry crisp?? Yes, please!!!!

    Gosh your grands are growing up entirely too fast. ♥

  11. Your grandaughters are so sweet and growing up quickly. I really need to make your blackberry crisp as my favorite dessert growing up was blackberry pie baked in my grandmother's vintage trailer oven.

  12. Adorable Grands! What especial time! Your dessert is mouthwatering...And I love your elegant teacup. Best wishes dear Kitty.

  13. Such a fun and special outing for with the older girls! Your tea cups are all so beautiful and special, and yes it’s time for iced tea, πŸ˜… so hot this summer! Stay cool Kitty!

  14. Awww, such sweet smiling girls. So nice you took them shopping. Special memories in the works. You always have the prettiest teacups and that Blackberry crisp sounds wonderful. Stay cool.

  15. Looks like a lovely day with your girls...and blackberries! Yum!!

  16. So glad Kitty is enjoying this outing with her granddaughters. I feel like it's the time spent with the grandchildren that makes me live. As my 5 oldest (32, 29, 27, 24 and 20), 3 living and studying in another country, two already married and life already very busy with studies and work, I find it difficult to be together often. Fortunately the 4 youngest (14 to 20 years old) are still close by and I can see them more easily.
    Once again, I really enjoyed seeing your table for tea. The cup of blackberries is beautiful!
    Good weekend

  17. Hi Kitty,

    My how your grand girls have grown!! Such pretty girls, all of them. :) I love your blackberry teacup; it's so pretty! I've already pinned your blackberry crisp recipe -- it looks just delicious!! When I was younger, I wouldn't eat blackberries because of all the seeds, but now I love them. :D Summer berries are just the best, aren't they?

    I hope you're doing well, Kitty. I hear that the temperatures are brutal in Texas this summer. Ours have been mostly in the 90's with lots of humidity. Uhhh. I think we're ready for fall here. Take care, my friend!

    Warm hugs,

    Denise at Forest Manor

  18. Well the crisp looks wonderful but those girls!! My goodness how they've grown up before our very eyes! Beautiful young ladies!

  19. My kinda shoppers! Bargain hunting is the best! What a fun time to spend with your granddaughters!!!

    I've never had blackberry crisp. Blackberries are on sale this week at $.99, so I am going to give this a whirl for tomorrow's dessert. Looks so good in your photo, and the recipe is easy. Hip, hip, hooray!!!!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  20. When it's so hot a nice tea on ice with lemon is what I love. Your blackberry crisp looks delicious. I'm sure you had a fun time shopping with your granddaughters, they are all growing up so fast. Sounds like school starts in August there too. Sorry I'm late visiting lately, just doing a lot around the house while we can't get outside.
