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.

How to Serve a Berry Crisp  

Serve warm with vanilla or another complimentary ice cream.  A few seconds in the microwave will heat each berry crisp up nicely. There’s nothing better than melting ice cream on warm dessert!

These triple berry crisps are the perfect salute to summer! Indulging in a berry crisps will certainly delight your taste buds!

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

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

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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

  7. 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.

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

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

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