Apple Blueberry Crisp

I can hardly grasp the words to describe the smells wafting through the kitchen while this baked.

Pure buttery, brown sugar, apple and blueberry goodness.

I can remember the kitchen smelling like this when I was a child.  It kinda makes all the everyday stresses in life melt away, even for just a moment.  My mother would make apple crisps often.  We had at least 4 apple trees in our backyard when I was a little girl and as soon as they started falling from the tree we were in business.

A lot of times they had served as a snack for a bug or two so they would have a hole or two.  My mom would simply cut out the eaten part and dice them up into a pie or crisp.  They were perfect for that.

Nowadays I don’t live close enough to help them use up their bags of apples but I don’t mind forking out a dollar or two for something special.

Especially if that something special is something I know mr will love.  Father’s Day is coming up this weekend and I think I’ll make another one of these crisps just for him.  And I’ll probably have a bite or two myself.


  1. This looks delicious. I think I might make one this weekend too. I didn’t realize they were so straight forward to make. I have been missing out!

  2. So I think these look awesome… Only that I don’t like chomping on blueberries. What do you think about making a blueberry pureé to add in instead?

    • Good question Jesse. When the crisp gets baked the blueberries do soften and some pop. I think if you used frozen blueberries you wouldn’t have any blueberries to bite into but you may want to gently smash them with a fork before baking. I’m worried a puree might make the crisp a bit runny but you could certainly give it a try. Either way I think you’ll love the combination of both fruits. My favorite part is the crisp topping anyways. 😉

  3. Looks delish! I love blueberries and I love fruit crisps, especially with vanilla ice cream on top!

  4. Nothing beats the smell of a crisp baking in the oven. I just want to bottle that smell up in a jar. This looks so good. Love the apple blueberry combo.

  5. Love blueberries! And crisps are some of our favorite desserts here, I need to try this one.

  6. We had planted apple trees in our last year. This would have been the first year we would have gotten apples, and we moved 🙁 This crisp sounds wonderful, I wouldn’t have thought to do apple and blueberry together.

  7. This looks so good! I love the apple-blueberry combo and who doesn’t like a spicy crumb topping? Yum!

  8. Oh yeah…I bet that aroma is just intoxicating! A true comfort dish! And to serve it with a side of vanilla ice cream? Pure nirvana!

  9. I can imagine how your kitchen must have smelled–heavenly! Love crisps and you can’t go wrong with a apples and blueberries. 🙂

  10. This looks delish!

  11. OMG – there is almost nothing better in the summer than a wonderful fruit crisp. Yours looks DIVINE!!! Have a great weekend!!

  12. One of my favorite desserts is a blueberry crisp – I must try it with apples next! Perfect for summer 🙂

  13. fruit crisp is a summer long dessert. works well with most of the fruits and the scoop of vanilla ice-cream on top makes it even better!

  14. Delicious! On a hot summer day, I’d love to have this fruit crisp with vanilla ice cream! Such a luxury! I always love blueberry crisp, but adding apple is a great idea!
