Prepare The Fruit Filling

Before beginning, preheat your oven to 350°F, and lightly spray or grease an 8″ x 8″ baking dish. Now it’s time to make the fruit filling for the crisp! It’s EASY!

Place blueberries, cranberries, sugar, flour, lemon juice and a dash of salt in a large mixing bowl. Gently stir these ingredients until fully combined. NOTE: You can use frozen OR fresh blueberries and cranberries. If using frozen berries, just toss ’em frozen into the bowl, cause they will thaw quickly! Once combined, pour them into the lightly greased or sprayed baking dish. See how easy that was?

Make The Streusel Topping

Now it’s time to make the buttery streusel topping for the fruit crisp. Place flour, brown sugar, COLD butter chunks, ground cinnamon and old fashioned rolled oats in a medium sized bowl.

Use a pastry blender (shown in photo), two forks, or your fingers to cut the cold butter into the crumb topping. Continue until the butter is about the size of peas, and is fully incorporated into a crumbly mixture. NOTE: You can also do this step in a food processor, if desired. Pulse off and on until the mixture is crumbly.

Time To Bake The Blueberry Cranberry Crisp

Evenly spread the crumb streusel topping over the surface of the fruit filling. Place the blueberry cranberry crisp on the middle rack of the preheated oven. Bake at 350°F. for approximately 32-35 minutes.

When done, the fruit juices will be bubbly around the edges, and the top of the crisp will be golden brown. Remove the pan from the oven, and transfer it to a wire rack. Let the blueberry cranberry crisp cool down for approximately 5 minutes before serving.
