Blueberry Amaretti Crisp

Blueberry Amaretti Crisp

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.

Ingredients:
6 cups blueberries
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup amaretto
2/3 cup flour
2/3 cup amaretti cookies (crushed)
1/4 cup almonds (sliced)
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter (melted)

Directions:
1. Toss the blueberries with the cornstarch, sugar and amaretto.
2. Mix the flour, amaretti cookies, almonds, brown sugar and butter in a large bowl.
3. Place the blueberries into an 8x8 inch baking dish and pour the topping on.
4. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until it is bubbling and the top is golden brown, about 45 minutes.
