Brown Butter Berry Crisp

In this sweet, wholesome treat, fresh berries meet a crunchy topping infused with brown butter and fresh rolled oats, baked to golden perfection. The contrast of crisp oat crunch and tender, bursting berries creates a symphony of texture that will satisfy your cravings. Serve warm with a dollop of creamy vanilla ice cream.

What You'll Need

For the mixed berry filling:

6–8 cups mixed seasonal berries

1/3 cup sugar

Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

Seeds from 1 vanilla bean, 1 tsp vanilla bean paste or extract

2 tablespoons arrowroot powder (arrowroot powder can often be found in the baking aisle or wherever flour or cornstarch is shelved.)

Pinch of salt

For the brown butter oat topping:

1 1/4 cup Fresh Rolled Oats

1 cup All Purpose Flour

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter

1/2 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Make the berry filling

Combine all the ingredients for the filling in a large bowl. Allow to soak for 15 minutes while you make the topping.

Make the brown butter oat topping

  1. Cut butter into pieces and add to a saucepan. Over medium heat, melt the butter and continue to cook, stirring constantly until the milk solids separate (about 7-10 minutes). The butter should smell nutty and be golden brown in color.

  2. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.

  3. Mix the oats, flour, brown sugar and salt in a medium bowl until combined. Pour in the browned butter and vanilla and stir until the wet and dry ingredients are fully incorporated.

Assemble and bake

  1. Pour the berries into the baking dish.

  2. Sprinkle the oat topping over the berries in an even layer.

  3. Transfer to the preheated oven and cook for about 45 minutes, or until the berries are bubbly and the topping is golden brown.

  4. Allow the crisp to cool for at least 30 minutes.

  5. Serve topped with vanilla ice cream or freshly whipped cream.
