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.

  • 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
Step By Step Method
  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.
