Summer Blueberry Pie Crisp

Summer Blueberry Pie Crisp | Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck Survive Despite a Whiskered Accomplice

Did y’all have a great 4th of July? I know the weather around here in Virginia kind of put a damper on things, but at least we didn’t all have to worry about burning the neighborhood down with our fireworks for once. I’m praying that y’all still have all your fingers and toes and that you didn’t all catch colds from watching fireworks in the rain. B.O.B. Bob and I set off some of our favorite fireworks on Sunday and Monday evening. Thankfully Brenna has no aversion to bright noisy rockets flying through the air and her Daddy plays it pretty safe when dealing with explosive objects. We still have all of our fingers and toes, even if some of our toes were a bit disfigured to begin with. Cough. Cough. B.O.B. Bob. Cough. Cough. Lawn Mower. Cough. Cough.

On Saturday, B.O.B. Bob and I went on one heck of a road trip, which led us through three different states. We started off antiquing in Luckett’s, then headed to Pennsylvania and mistakenly ended up in Gettysburg where we discovered a new brewery, and finally we headed to Hagerstown to buy some gourmet sausage and visit with my parents. It was a fun day, and Brenna sure was super excited to see us when we arrived home; she may have been a wee bit hungry. The little girl’s PetSafe 5-Meal Pet Feeder has been taken over by ants yet again, which means she must rely on her Daddy to deliver the good stuff for a while until we get the pests under control.

Sunday brought a lot of time spent in the kitchen and a whole lot of cussing on my part. There are days I love nothing more than cooking, and then there are days when it’s the last thing I want to be doing. By 4:00 in the afternoon I was ready to rip someone’s head off. My cornbread burning was pretty much the last straw. I was pretty darn tootin’ bummed out that it required a complete do-over. Thankfully Brenna and her Daddy knew from all of the bad words being screamed that they should keep a safe distance and no one was hurt too bad from having to endure the experience. Except of course for the burnt beyond recognition cornbread, which has now taken up residence outside in our trashcan.

This Summer Blueberry Pie Crisp was part of my dreadfully crappy day but thankfully happened earlier on in the morning when true frustration had yet to set in. B.O.B. Bob did help out a bit, after all, he’s phenomenal at stirring the pot. He’s also great at fetching cooking and baking equipment from the garage for me. I was all set to use my new Emile Henry Pie Dish for this blueberry crisp, but then I remembered my brother’s Longaberger 4th of July Pie Plate that has been living in our garage for the past year and a half unused. It felt right that something of his should play a part in our holiday weekend. Things just aren’t the same around here without him, and there are way more leftovers without his help to eat everything, which means B.O.B. Bob and I will be eating Salt Pork Green Beans and Do-Over Cornbread for the rest of the week. Hey, at least I don’t have to worry about spending any more time in the kitchen. So what did you burn this weekend? Anything good?

Suggestions:

  • Stir the blueberry mixture constantly while it is on the stove to prevent it from burning or sticking.
  • Place the pie on a foil-lined baking sheet to prevent spills during baking.
  • The oats will give the blueberry crisp a very rustic texture.
  • Serve warm.

  • Serve with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
  • Garnish with fresh mint.
  • Add 1/4-cup of finely chopped pecans or almonds to the crisp topping.

    That looks amazing! Thankfully I wasn’t doing any of the cooking this past weekend – everyone else was doing it for me. (So thankful for that…)

    • Colleen Delawder

      Lucky you! The great thing is that I have a fridge full of food for the week…so much that I’m beginning to stress about how it will all get eaten!

  • Chrystal Saint Clair

    Not a blueberry fan but this looks so delicious!

    • Colleen Delawder

      Totally understand Chrystal…the beauty of this recipe is that you can substitute any fruit you really like…strawberries, peaches, raspberries…take your pick!

  • Sheena Tweed

    Omg, I love blue berry pie, I just have to make this asap. Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe. Although I’ll have to pass on the mint because I’m alergic. This looks so yummy. I can’t wait to try it. Thanks again.

    • Colleen Delawder

      Wow Sheena…I’ve never heard of a mint allergy…how unique. Hope you enjoy it without the mint.

      • Sheena Tweed

      Thanks Alli!

  • I’ve had the same issue with leaving food out for Coco on a weekend trip. It’s annoying. I see you made it to my neck of the woods! I’m originally from Pennsylvania and my Sister graduated from Gettysburg College!

    • Colleen Delawder

      Gettysburg is a beautiful area…maybe I’ll get back there sometime soon! I’m going to attempt to put the automatic feeder out again this week and see what happens. Ants suck!

  • CakePants

    This pie crisp looks phenomenal – and the flowers add such a lovely touch to the photos! I definitely feel you on the love/hate relationship with cooking. I haven’t burned anything recently, but I have had some melty chocolate mishaps!

    • Colleen Delawder

      Melty chocolate mishaps sound lovely!!! Thankfully, I mostly love cooking…I reserve the hate for special days!
