Blueberry Crisp Recipe

I have to be honest, I’m looking forward to summer! We have a lot of fun plans, but also there’s are two things about the season that I really love: first is fresh fruit. The second thing I love about the summer? Fruit dessert recipes. Nom nom!

Speaking of fresh fruit, you’re going to get excited about this recipe using fresh blueberries. This lemon blueberry crisp will be one of your new summer dessert staples! I think it would be perfect for spring or Easter as well. Why limit yourself to just summer?

Here’s the best part . . . because there’s something very special about this blueberry crisp recipe . . . it’s made in mason jar lids.

And the crust is scalloped. So not only is this summer dessert delicious, but it’s cute (pretty?) too!

You’re going to need fresh blueberries, so hit a farmer’s market or roadside fruit stand to make this summer treat. Learn how these dessert bites are made below.

Mini Lemon Blueberry Crumble

Ingredients

  • 2 packages refrigerated pie dough
  • 1 ½ pints fresh blueberries
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 1 T corn starch

Crumble

  • ½ cup flour
  • 3 T sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup melted butter

  • 1 t lemon juice

Tools

A few thoughts for this recipe:

  • I’ve been asked if you can put crust over the top to make them more “mini pie like” and the answer is yes. I would roll out the crust a bit though and make it a little thinner than the bottom crust just for ease of baking.
  • If you do add a crust, beat one egg with a tablespoon of water and brush it over the top with a pastry brush.
  • Some people have found that spraying the lids with cooking spray or greasing them with butter makes removing the crisp easier.

Can you use a standard muffin tin? As opposed to the lids?

Hi Donna! I don't see why not - I would try it!

I have made these twice and they are an unbelievable hit. They are the perfect size for one, the crumble is a nice addition to the soft blueberry filling, and the filling is balanced just right between sweet and tart. Today, I am going to try this recipe substituting peaches for blueberries as I have exhausted my supply of frozen blueberries and need to do the same for my peaches before the new season is on us.
