Individual Berry Crisps

Making a pie is often time-consuming, not to mention daunting. I’ve messed up too many pie crusts to mention. Granted, they usually taste yummy, but not what I’d want to serve to company. Crisps are pretty much foolproof. Plus making them in ramekins is a terrific presentation, creating individual berry crisps for each of your guests.

Easy Summer Dessert

These mini berry crisps are a snap to prepare. Just head to your favorite farmers’ market, produce stand or grocery store and pick up 4 cups of the ripest seasonal berries you can find. I love using a mixture of luscious raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. Gently toss the berries with sugar and cornstarch and divide between ramekins.
I love using these mini red cocottesfrom Le Crueset. But you’re more likely to have 6 or 8-ounce ramekins in your kitchen. Either will work fine. Sprinkle with a simple brown sugar butter streusel, bake, and voila, dessert is served! Make sure the filling is hot and bubbly to ensure the cornstarch works its thickening magic.

A delicious mix of berries topped with a brown sugar crisp

  • Author: Liz Berg
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 40 mins
  • Total Time: 55 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

Berry Filling::

  • 4 cups mixed berries (I used fresh blueberries, fresh raspberries, and fresh blackberries)
  • 1/4 cup sugar (or more if berries are not sweet)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

Topping::

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Gently mix berries with sugar and cornstarch. Divide between 4 8-ounce ramekins.
  3. Make topping by combining flour, brown sugar, and butter. With fingers, press, break apart and work in butter until topping resembles cornmeal. Sprinkle evenly over the four ramekins.
  4. Place ramekins on baking sheet and bake for 35-45 minutes, until the filling bubbles and the topping is browned. Cool slightly, then serve with vanilla ice cream.

  3. The berry crisps look delicious! I’d actually been craving apple crisp, but since apples are out of season, this would be perfect.

  4. You lucky girl! I have swag envy 🙂

  5. You are one lucky lady! Go buy that lottery ticket and strike while the iron is hot. 😉 Those crisps look super tasty.

  7. I need to make these! I’m totally into the individuals right now. Love it! And the fact that it’s summer and the berries are commin on quick:)

  8. I would never have thought of making individual berry crisps…have the same little dishes, and always have some kind of berries on hand.
    Thank you for the sweet mention about me, Lizzy…that reminds me, today is the day that I’m mailing the book out to you. I hope you will enjoy it!
    xoxo

  9. These look wonderful! I have made crisp yet this summer, and it’s on the agenda! And, my goodness you are lucky. You should definitely get a lotto ticket 🙂

  10. Wow! What great prizes. I was happy you won my giveaway. Just have fun with it – my cupcakes never look perfect but it’s fun to experiment with the piping bag.

  11. Congrats on all your wins!

    The berry crisps sound so good… especially with that big scoop of ice cream! YUM! I like that you’ve made them into individual ramekins…this would help me in making sure that I don’t eat the entire pie plate. 🙂

  12. You lucky girl, congratulations on all your gifts. You totally deserve them. Can’t wait to see what you’re going to share with us from all those cookbooks.
    the berry crisps look great!!

  13. Liz – This berry crisp looks divine, and I can’t believe you’ve won all those giveaways! You must have the best of luck!

  14. Crisps are one of my favorite desserts – somehow it doesn’t feel like eating dessert when it has apples or berries in it! Even makes me think it’s okay for seconds…

  15. Oh my! You are a REALLY lucky lady!!! So happy for you! <3

    The berry crisps look so good. I like individual servings… I also find them easier when you have kids over… so they don’t fight over who has the biggest portion! hahaha

  16. Not too much “crisp” in the berry crisp. I’ve made my fair share and there is always a lot of crumb – not necessarily a bad thing but it’s nice to lighten it up every now and then. I’m not sure which is tempting me more though the berry crisp of the individual cooking cups. I’ve had my eye on something similar for a while now.

  17. Wow, buy a lottery ticket for me too 😉 Congrats! Your berry crisps look wonderful. I think berry desserts are my favorite summer treat. I like the individual servings in ramekins too!

  18. i like the individual cups
    thank you for the tip of adding cornstarch in the crisps looks delicious

  19. Whoa! Lizzy, you are such a lucky person to receive so many giveaways!! It’s karma..you are nice and you get nice things! It’s true.

    Your berry crisps look delicious! I wish I can make desserts like you. I might gain weight even more but I’d be much happier for sure!

  20. Wow, you’ve been on a roll, congrats on the giveaway winnings! I love your berry crisps – fruit desserts with a crumble topping are one of my very favorites 🙂

  21. You’re on a real winning streak. Those crisps look so warm and comforting and that vanilla ice cream is a must.

  22. These look so amazing! I’m been looking for an easy cobbler type recipe. Definitely gonna try this one. Check out my recipes!

  30. Dear this exquisite dessert my mother taught me at age 10, their grandparents were born in England and enjoyed cooking with berries, your dessert looks amazing I’ve marveled at your recipes, hugs.

  31. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe with Made with Love Mondays, Liz. I love crisps because they’re so easy to make and there’s no fattening crust to rolling out or fuss with. Making them individual servings is even better in my book – the perfect ratio of berries to topping with every bite…

  32. I love this adorable mini crisps, so scrumptious!

  33. I make individual fruit crisps so often, and I don’t know why I’ve never shared my recipe. It’s really the perfect, simple summer dessert. Yours are so beautiful in the little cocottes!

  34. Dear Lizzy, what a delightful and delicious treat for summer. I love the individual servings. xoxo, Catherine

  35. Individual treats are seriously the best!!! I especially love this topping 🙂

  36. Waiting for my oven to get fixed and the I am,aking these. I have a good mix of berries to use!

  37. Yes, get a lottery ticket immediately! I love the dessert and it’s fabulous when done in individual servings. Wish I had one now!

  38. Totally irresistible! I love the individual serving here too.

  39. I just made triple berry crisp for breakfast this morning. It was soooooo good. I may have even eaten a little ice cream 🙂 I love the idea of making individual crisps.

    By the way, this is such a dumb question, but I keep wondering how you and other bloggers republish a post without losing the content/comments. I’m still such a technical novice.

  40. I love individually presented desserts, this one is adorable. My Le Creuset are blue so I would make a blueberry crisp!

  41. Great dessert! Looks so delicious!

  42. Every week I think about how I need to whip up a crisp as it has been so long, but I never get around to it. I’m going to consider this the final push I need!

  43. What beautiful little crisps, sounds really delish! This looks really irresistible. Gorgeous photo Liz

  44. I love mixed berries in cobblers and crisps, etc. These look delicious! And what a great idea to bake them in individual dishes. I love having a little dessert all to myself. LOVE those red cocottes!

  45. A favorite dessert! These are so cute!

  46. Individually treats are always the BEST. Everyone gets the fair share that way, plus they look so cute! Love berries and crisps. Perfect for breakfast. Also loving your red cocottes, I also have the same! 😉

  47. These look gorgeous, Liz! Berry crisps are one of my favorite baked desserts! The individual servings are the perfect size!!

  48. Definitely one of the best and easiest desserts!

  49. I love berries! Its vibrant color makes every dessert delectable.

  50. This looks like the perfect summer dessert!

  51. What a beautiful recipe. I love the beautiful fruit and crisps are my favorite!

  52. I love these berry crisps especially in your little cast iron casserole dishes. How perfect!

  53. Love the idea of portion control though am not sure I can prevent myself from having seconds! 🙂

  54. You hit the nail on the head when you said crisps are fool-proof. Serving them in individual ramekins is a nice way to gussy them up a bit also.

  55. Love crisps, I’m with you pie crusts are so hit and miss and let’s face it pastry can be a bit boring crisp topping is much better.

  56. I have been looking for an individual crisp recipe…. I love being able to serve bite sized treats! Pinning!

  57. For the first time in my life David ate every single one of my apple crisps…So I’m definitely inspired to try your berry crisps =) P.s. Glad I’m not the only who can be pie crust challenged.

  58. Love hos you presented it too! Can’t wait to try this recipe!

  59. Comfort desserts like this one are always the best!!

  60. Who can resist a buttery brown sugar crumb topping? Not me!
