Who doesn’t love a warm fruit crisp? Crisps are a good old stand-by dessert, easy to whip up at the last minute. They’re a healthy alternative to sugary cakes and cupcakes for dessert. If not too sweet, you can easily have the leftovers for breakfast. Fruit, oats, and perhaps some nuts, they’re a great all-round dependable dessert.Blueberry Limoncello Crisp with Whipped Coconut Milk |www.flavourandsavour.com

But sometimes it’s fun to add a little more interest to an everyday dessert, by adding a hint of flavour with a liqueur. Apple Crisp took on a new light in this Apple Crisp with Salted Bourbon Caramel Sauce.

Recently, plain old run-of-the-mill Blueberry Crisp became Blueberry Limoncello Crisp with Whipped Coconut Milk.

And it was memorable!

Limoncello is a sweet lemon liqueur produced in Southern Italy, particularly near Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast where lemons grow abundantly, some varieties bigger than grapefruit. It’s usually served in small chilled glasses after dinner, but today I decided to add it straight to my dessert.

It added a punch of pizzazz to this blueberry crisp recipe.
