A Case for Small Batch Desserts

I adore smaller-portioned desserts. As much as I love baking, there’s always the business of what to do with it all once it’s been baked. Ice creams, breads, and even cookies do fine in the freezer, but some things, (like this small batch blueberry crisp!) are best eaten immediately. So I’ve started playing more with smaller portions, baking in containers that are perfectly sized for my family of five. No leftovers to worry about and just enough for everyone.

Small Batch Blueberry Crisp

This blueberry crisp is a near-perfect recipe for fresh summer blueberries. Here, with few ingredients and simple preparation, the blueberries shine. Best served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, this dessert is simultaneously refreshing and comforting.

To make it, we start with the fruit filling. We toss our blueberries with sugar, lemon zest, and cornstarch. That entire mixture pours into a one quart baking dish. Next, we put together the topping which is nothing more than butter, brown sugar, flour, oats, and cinnamon. Crumble the wet topping onto the fruit, distributing it evenly until consistent throughout. Finally, it gets a bake in the oven. Once bubbly and finished, this dessert is sweet, flavorful, and the perfect accompaniment for vanilla ice cream.
