Lemon Blackberry Crisp Recipe

lemon blackberry crisp Happy Friday, foodie friends!!!! We made it another week. This week flew by with a holiday on Monday and non-stop work and school all week. I'm excited to announce that my term is over. I just have one more paper to write and then another final exam. This term has kicked my booty, and I feel like today's recipe is the perfect toast to the end of a treacherous term.  :) I kid, I kid...or do I?

Is there a better pairing for summer than blackberry and lemon? I was thinking of all the possibilities. You could do blackberry lemonade, blackberry and lemon popsicles or lemon blackberry cake. I've got a bit of a sweet tooth and nothing is better than cobbler or crisps this time of year (Okay, I lied, I also love strawberry rhubarb pie too).

I love this recipe because it's got both a sweet and tart flavor burst. It's just so yummy! Plus, as you're baking it, the delicious smell permeates the air and makes your mouth water.

I got the crisp recipe from my grandmother's cookbook. I upped the butter (she only called for a third cup). You need that butter goodness to make the perfect crumble. It adds to the amazingness. I also topped the crisp after baking it with a simple powdered sugar glaze made with some of the excess lemon juice and milk. It was literally the icing on the "cake."
