Old Fashioned Delicious Blueberry Crisp
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup water
3 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water and bring to a light boil. Add blueberries, vanilla and lemon juice; stir well to blend. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
For the Topping:
1 1/4 cups old-fashioned oats (we use Quaker quick cooking oats)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons butter – plus a little extra to butter the pan and dot on top.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the oats, brown sugar, flour and salt in a small bowl. Cut butter into small pieces and add to the bowl with the oats. Stir around with a fork until the butter is slightly soft.
Butter the bottom and sides of a 9-inch square baking pan. Pour the cooked blueberry mixture into the bottom of the pan.
Sprinkle the topping on top of the blueberries and dot with a tiny bit of additional butter.
Bake about 30 minutes making sure the topping is browned.
