Guest Post MadeByGirl:: Blueberry Crisp with Oatmeal Crumble

I am very excited because today I bring you my new site! This has been a long time coming and I couldn't be happier with the results! I worked with the wonderful Victoria of Vivaleur and the blog vmac + cheese and I think the result really captures the essence of the blog.  

On another note, I am guest posting over on MadeByGirl sharing a summer dessert recipe for Blueberry Crisp with Oatmeal Crumble.  Head on over to check it out or continue for more!

Blueberry Crisp with Oatmeal Crumb Topping
1 1/2 pints fresh blueberries
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar*
1 teaspoon corn starch
1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
pinch of salt

Crumb Topping:
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and diced
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg

Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees .Gather four ramekins and place on a baking sheet. Combine blueberries, sugar, corn starch, lemon juice and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl, stir to combine.  Set aside. In another bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, sugar and spices, whisk together.  Using a pastry cutter, add the butter and mix until combined, mixture should stay together when squeezed into your palm.  For assembly, place blueberries into ramekin and add a generous amount of crumb toping.  Bake for 20 minutes or until topping has browned.  Serve warm or cold.
