Two-Berry Crisp with Pecan Streusel Topping

October 21, 2010

Here’s a quick and delicious recipe for when you’re craving something sweet this Fall. I happen to be a huge berry lover and couldn’t pass on trying this Two-Berry Crisp with Pecan Streusel Topping. Warm blueberries and raspberries topped with crunchy pecans. The only regret I have is forgetting to buy vanilla ice cream to make this dessert even more delicious!

So, how’s it taste?

Even though this recipe is cheating big time with store-bought blueberry pie filling, it’s incredibly good. It’s so simple to put together, but good enough to serve to company. The frozen raspberries add a tartness to the dish to really balance the super sweet pie filling. Mix together a few ingredients for the streusel topping and you’re in business. Pecans, oats, and brown sugar. Now those three are the makings for a great crust! A big scoop of good vanilla ice cream would really be tasty as well. Can’t you just picture it melting into the crust and berries? Mmm mmm!
