Individual Fruit Crisp


Created for my preschoolers to do as an individual cooking activity, they are also perfect for single servings. I tried to simply change the portion sizes on other recipes, but they got too complicated. This is just a basic recipe for you to get you started. It would also work as a pre-dinner party activity--lay out a make-your-own-crisp table and have guests create their own concoctions. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

1 fruit crisp



  • ½ cup fresh blackberries

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • ½ tablespoon cornstarch


  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons rolled oats

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Combine blackberries, sugar, and cornstarch in a bowl. Place into an oven-safe ramekin.

  3. Combine flour, oats, sugar, butter, and allspice in a bowl; mix well to fully incorporate butter. Add to the top of the ramekin.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden on top, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

The type of fruit is totally up to you. Try combinations! My wholesale store has a frozen blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry blend that is terrific. Apples and cherries, pears and figs, peaches and mango...

Type of sugar and flour is up to you, I prefer white sugar with blueberries and bush fruit, brown sugar with cherries, apples, and other tree fruits. If I use apples, I add a little cinnamon into the fruit mixture as well. For firm fruit, like apples and pears, you may want to add 1 tablespoon fruit juice for added liquid, as fruit won't mush apart like soft fruit to create a nice syrup.

A tablespoon of nuts of your choice can also be added to topping mixture.

Bake time for fresh, soft fruit is about 20 minutes. Bake time for fresh, firm fruit such as large, diced apples or frozen fruit is about 45 minutes.
