Blueberry Crumble Makes an Easy Summer Dessert

Those blueberry desserts are calling your name as the berries drip from the bushes! It’s been a great spring and summer for berries, with plenty of rain. Homegrown blueberries taste so much better, but even store-bought are fresh now, and can be used to make this easy dessert.

Crumbles can be made with any type of fresh fruit, but blueberry crumble is one of my favorites. I just try not to wear a white shirt when I’m indulging in this rich, warm dessert!

If berries aren’t in season, you can use canned pie filling and skip right to the directions for making the crumble.

  1. If you don’t want the hassle of ice cream, I would double the crumble ingredients and press half into the bottom of the pan. Pour on the blueberries, and sprinkle the rest of the crumble on top. Then, you have blueberry squares!

  2. Struggled with what to make for our 77th family reunion to be held this Sunday…giving the Blueberry Crumble a shot! Thanks for sharing!
