When the Berries Crisp is done baking, the topping will have started to turn a golden brown and the berries will be bubbling up around the edges of the baking dish.

Step Five

Let the berry crisp cool for a few minutes before serving. You can serve the crisp plain, or with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I personally like to pair this gluten-free dessert with a scoop of dairy-free coconut vanilla ice cream. My husband likes his with a dollop of coconut milk whipped cream.
