Grandpa Shorter's Fruit Crisps Crumble Recipe Jars Dessert

Hello again, friends! Backyard BBQ season is upon us and i don’t know about you but that means, we have friends and family over once or twice a week enjoying the weather and hanging out. We love firing up the grill during the summer months and being outside as much as possible. With company at our place a few times a week for dinner I always like to have dessert on hand. The easier, the better! These homemade crisps feature Northern Michigan’s own Brownwood Farms products and a snap to throw together. They do require about 20 minutes of bake time so I suggest making them early during the summer months so you’re not over heating your kitchen, but they also take less than 30 minutes to throw together. No one will ever guess that they are so easy because they are delicious and really pretty in the jars.

Once they are baked and cooled you can set them in the fridge and serve when ready. They also pair very nicely with ice cream on the side!

Brownwood Farms Fruit Crisp Ingredients:

12 oz jar of Brownwood Farms Blueberry Preserves
12 oz jar of Brownwood Farms Cherry Butter Preserves (optional, I used both in this recipe making a few of each)
1/2 C. flour
1/2 C. rolled oats (not quick cooking oats)
1/3 C. packed brown sugar
1/4 C. butter, melted
(5) 4 oz jelly jars


#1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
#2. Scoop about 3 tablespoons of the preserves into the bottom of each 4 oz jelly jars.
#3. In a medium size bowl, combine the rolled oats, flour and brown sugar – stir to mix all the ingredients. Add in the melted butter and stir. The mixture will be crumbly.
#4. Scoop about 2 tablespoons of the crumb mixture on top of the preserves in the jars.
#5. Place the jars on a baking sheet and bake 20-25 minutes.
#6. Remove the jars from the oven and allow to cool completely prior to serving.
