  • 6 tbsps plus 1/2 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 6 tbsps all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract, divided
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt, divided
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsps lemon juice
  • 4 tbsps unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 4 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 tbsps cornstarch
  • 2 tsps brandy
  • vanilla ice cream for serving


  • In a medium bowl, combine six tbsps sugar, all-purpose flour, oats, brown sugar, walnuts, lemon zest, 1/4 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp kosher salt and cinnamon. Using your fingers, work butter into the flour mixture until crumbly. Transfer the topping into the freezer to let chill for 30 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, stir together remaining 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 tsp salt, lemon juice and remaining 1/2 tsp vanilla, along with blueberries, cornstarch and brandy.
  • Place 4 (six-ounce) fluted, ceramic ramekins on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Divide berry mixture equally between the ramekins.
  • Mound some of the crisp topping over each ramekin. Bake in a 350 degree oven until the berries are bubbly and the topping is browned; about 30 minutes.
  • Serve warm or room temperature with vanilla ice cream.
