With a buttery, crunch-tastic oat and brown sugar topping partnered with the super simple filling that highlights the best of what ripe berries and stone fruit have to offer, this sweet and satisfying crisp is the ultimate in summer desserts. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a treat no one can resist. The best part about this recipe is that it can be used with most any of your favorite summer fruits. Try substituting plump, juicy peaches for the nectarines and blackberries for the blueberries next time you want to change things up. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Make topping: Mix oats, flour, dark brown sugar and salt in a large bowl. Using fingertips, a pastry blender or two knives scissor-fashion, cut in butter until pieces are size of peas and mixture is well combined. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 375°F; butter a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Make filling: Combine nectarines and blueberries in a large bowl. Add lemon juice, sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon. Mix well and pour into baking dish.

Step 3

Sprinkle topping mixture evenly over fruit and bake until brown on top and fruit is bubbling, about 45 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack before serving.

Very easy and delicious!! I cut back on the butter a little but this was still a very tasty treat...a great way to use up an abundance of nectarines.

Marvelous !! I added chopped pecans to topping, and served with big scoop of butter pecan ice cream. Way better than just blueberries alone. Thanks for sharing !
