Mixed Berry Crisp

Mixed Berry Crisp

I love this time of year because I can easily find all of my favorite berries in my local grocery store, which tides me over until I can get them fresh from my farmer's market later in the season. And that means I get to make my favorite berry dessert!! Let's be honest, what makes and amazing crisp is, well the crisp! And this topping taken from my mom's apple crisp recipe does not disappoint! I now use it for all of my crisp recipes and usually have to double the batch because my kids (and I) eat it straight from the bowl! The extra drizzle of cinnamon vanilla caramel sauce on top adds a warm, buttery richness to the whole dish. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you've got yourself the perfect berries and cream bite! As we're beginning to enter back into social gatherings, this is the perfect dessert to make and share. Enjoy!
