  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cold, cut into small pieces, plus more for baking dish
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup packed dark-brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup plus 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon mace
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 3 pounds apples (about 8), peeled, cored, and cut into thin wedges
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees, with a rack in the lower third. Butter a 3-quart baking dish, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet; set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, 1/3 cup granulated sugar, cinnamon, mace, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until large clumps form. Using a rubber spatula, mix in oats. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, toss together blueberries, apples, lemon juice, remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar, flour, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt to combine. Pour the blueberry and apple mixture into the prepared baking dish; sprinkle with reserved oat mixture, covering fruit evenly. Bake until juices are bubbling and the topping is evenly browned, about 50 minutes. Cool slightly on a wire rack. Serve crisp warm, topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.

    This recipe rocks! The crumb recipe is SOOO good. I tried to make it healthier by using some whole wheat flour and soy flour. Fantastic! did not have mace, so i used clove, cardamom and nutmeg. Yummy, keeper.
