I came across this recipe for a blueberry crisp with an amaretti cookie topping in Food & Drink magazine and knew that I would have to try it. The combination of almonds and blueberries sounded really good. The fresh local blueberries have been calling my name and this seemed like a great way to use them. The blueberry crisp was super easy to make and it turned out great! Hot blueberries sitting in a pool of melting vanilla ice cream is just so good! The almond flavours worked well with the blueberries and I really liked the texture that the amaretti cookies gave the topping. I will definitely be making this one again! I must confess that it was so good that I could not wait for dinner the next day and had some right out of the fridge for breakfast with some vanilla yogurt.
