10 Blueberry Crisps and Crumbles
There are so many ways to transform fresh spring and summer blueberries into warm and cozy desserts, but crumbles and crisps have to be among our favorites. Although the terms are often used interchangeably, a crumble refers to a baked dessert consisting of fresh fruit with a streusel-like topping usually made from some combination of flour, sugar, and butter. A crisp is very similar: It has a warm, ooey-gooey fruit center, but with a lighter, crisp topping that usually contains some combination of oats and nuts. Not only are crisps and crumbles delicious, but they require minimal ingredients and prep work, making them a win in our book. Get excited about blueberry season with this collection of favorite blueberry crisps and crumbles.

Don't be turned off by the mayonnaise in this recipe, it acts sort of like butter for the streusel topping, but with even more moisture. Take it from reviewer PARISROSE who says, "I thought the mayo was a strange ingredient for a dessert but it's so good! I've made this about four times now and it's a hit every time."
The Ultimate Berry Crumble
The sweet-tart combination of blueberries, raspberries, black berries, and fresh lemon makes up the filling in this crumbly berry dessert. Chef John also notes that any combination of summer berries or stone fruits (like peaches) would work as well. If substituting frozen berries, you may need to increase the cornstarch called for to avoid a watery result.
