Triple Berry Crisp (Market Monday)

We’re nearing the end of berry season here in Colorado, so I wanted to share one last Market Monday recipe to use those summer berries. Fresh berries can be pretty delicate, and have a short shelf life, and this Triple Berry Crisp is a great way to use fruit that’s a little past it’s prime. Just remember, don’t wash berries until you’re ready to use them or they’ll go bad quickly.

Another great thing about this dessert–you can use other fruit in place of the berries, so it’s versatile enough to be adapted to whatever is in season. We love to serve this warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but whipped cream is delicious too! It does make a big pan (9×13) so if you’re not feeding a crowd, you might want to half the recipe. It’s fun to make in individual baking dishes too!

  1. Yum! I’m a huge fan of apple crisp but it’s so hard waiting for the first frost to pick the apples off of our trees…I think I’ll whip up this gorgeous version to hold me over!
