Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Blueberry Buckle

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is BLUEBERRY BUCKLE!!

I love blueberry pie for a change once in a while but I haven’t nearly the time I used to have to make pie crust.  I’m more inclined to throw together a buckle or crisp because it’s easier.  Not to mention delicious ~ I’m a crumb topping lover!!  This is a great special dessert for your next summer picnic!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
