Crisp, Cobbler or Crumble?

While many people use the terms interchangeably, they are a little different! A crisp refers to a dessert with a fruit filling and a light streusel topping made of flour, sugar, oats, and butter.

A crumble is simply a fruit tart without the oats! The topping is usually a simple combination of butter, flour and sugar with a more “lumpy” texture.

Cobbler, on the other hand, is a fruit dessert covered in a biscuit-like dough that covers the entire plate or is spooned over the surface of the dessert.

While I love all of these fruity desserts, oats give the perfect chewy texture to this delicious blueberry tart!

How to Make Blueberry Pie in a Cast Iron Skillet

Prepare the blueberry filling
  1. First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. While the oven is preheating, we will prepare the blueberry filling.
  2. Combine sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and water in a 10-inch cast iron skillet or ovenproof skillet. Heat rapidly until thickened, stirring frequently. Then remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the topping as follows. We will add the blueberries to the sugar mixture once it has cooled.

Assemble the blueberry tart

Recipe Tips

  • I use regular oats because I like the chewy texture they give, but you can also use quick-cooking oats if you're in a pinch or don't have any on hand.
  • You can use frozen blueberries instead of fresh berries. No need to thaw them first, just add them to the sugar mixture as directed.
  • A dash of lemon juice or lemon zest adds an extra touch of flavor to this blueberry dessert!
  • If you prefer, replace the almonds with pecans or walnuts.
  • If you don't like them, you can omit the cinnamon and/or nutmeg from the topping and blueberry filling!

How to store blueberry pie in a pan

Transfer the leftovers to an airtight container. I like to keep them at room temperature for the first day to maintain the crunchiness, but after that, I refrigerate them for up to 3 days.

Reheat in the microwave or at 350 degrees until thoroughly warmed.

Can I make the blueberry pie in a pan in advance?

You could make the filling and topping separately ahead of time, then assemble the crisp and cook it before serving! Otherwise, the topping would get soggy.

Can I freeze Blueberry Crisp?

You can freeze the blueberry crisp once removed from the pan. Transfer the blueberry crisp to an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat in an oven-safe pan at 350 degrees until warmed through.
