This berry crumble is ridiculously easy and a family favorite.

My sister Julie brought this to a small family dinner and it was gone by the time we left. Did I mention there was only 5 of us? Yeah. It is that good.

Summer is great for many obvious reason, but I especially love this time of year because so many fruits and veggies are in season. Currently berries are popping and if you’re lucky to live near a berry patch you can pick your own! Either way, this homemade berry crisp is a delicious way to show off your in season berries.

Although if I’m being honest, I’m not sure what I love more … the berries or the buttery crisp oatmeal topping. Or the scoop of vanilla ice cream that melts into it as you eat.
