Beauty’s Just A Bonus

Costco currently has 18 oz packages of blackberries for $4.49, which is why y’all need to take a look at this recipe for Blackberry Crisp.  After all, what’s not to love?  It’s got more or less the same topping as apple crisp–the recipe doesn’t call for nutmeg, but I absolutely threw some in because NUTMEG–but underneath it runs a river of gorgeous purple berries and juice.  Even I stopped for a few seconds to admire the color before indulging in the taste, and I’m not known for fretting overmuch about the aesthetics of food.  (Much to my art teacher mother’s regret.  You did try, Mom.)  Once you top the serving in your bowl with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream, however–or whipped cream in a pinch–you’ll move past the surface pretty quickly.  The trio of tart, sweet, and buttery is a party in your mouth, and when you marry it with cold creaminess, it’s a beautiful, beautiful thing.

My friend and I may or may not have doubled this recipe and made it twice this week.  I wonder when I’ll make it to Costco again…
