The star of the recipe is of course, fresh picked blackberries. I haven’t tried it with frozen berries. If you do, send me a note and let me know how it worked for you. The full recipe is at the end of the post. Here’s the lineup of ingredients…

First you take 1 cup of blackberries and crush them. {Tip: I use a Ziploc bag to do this. It keeps my hands, counters and clothing clean.} Then you add the sugar and cornstarch to a saucepan and heat to a boil while stirring for 2 minutes. Remove it from the heat, stir in the vanilla and the rest of the blackberries. Let cool.

Then you make the crumbly crisp mixture and fill the bottoms of your ramekins with a few tablespoons to create a bottom crust.
