1. Preheat oven to 350°. Put berries, granulated sugar, and 2 tbsp. of the flour into a large bowl and toss gently to combine. Transfer berry mixture to a 9" glass pie dish and set aside.

2. Put remaining flour, brown sugar, oats, butter, and salt into a medium mixing bowl. Using 2 table knives, work butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle topping evenly over berries in dish.

3. Put pie dish on a baking sheet, transfer to oven, and bake crisp until berries are bubbling and topping is golden brown, about 1 hour. Transfer dish to a rack to let crisp cool a bit. Serve crisp slightly warm, with vanilla ice cream, if you like.
