Must Have Resources:

When making this Blueberry Crumble with Fresh Blueberries at home, you really need to have the following Amazon affiliate tools on hand.

Pie Dish:  Pyrex is one of my go-to brands. I know it and love it.

Measuring Cups: I think my 2 cup measuring cup is my most favorite, but I hope you also have a set of measuring cups that can be packed and/or leveled.

Mixing Bowls:  The linked glass bowl set from Pyrex is the best investment I ever made into my kitchen.  These glass bowls with lids are perfect for mixing and storing.

Ice Cream Scoop: Reminiscent of the original Pampered Chef anti-freeze scoop, this one cut through even the hardest ice cream.
