Triple Berry Crisp

One of my dear friends, Kendra, shared this most amazing recipe with me years ago. Kendra is an amazing cook and is constantly bringing her delicious goods to playgroup to share with our ravenous group. Anyway back to the recipe, the thing that makes this so incredibly delicious is the buttery crisp on both the bottom and top of the berries. Serve it up with a nice scoop of  vanilla ice cream and prepare to be amazed!

Triple Berry Crisp

4 c. frozen berries (I just use the frozen mix you can find at
          both Costco and Sams. Raspberry, Blackberry and
4 T. Sugar
2 c. Flour
1 1/2 c. Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
2 c. Rolled Oats
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 1/2 c. Butter (Last time I cut out 3 T. and I didn’t notice)
Mix berries and sugar, set aside. Combine remaining ingredients using a pastry blender. (If you don’t want to cut in all of that cold butter you can easily soften it up just a bit, but make sure not to melt it. You really want a crisp not a cookie texture.)
Press half of crisp mixture into a 9 x 13 inch pan. Spread berries over crust and crumble the remaining crisp mixture on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 mins.
