Blueberry Crisp

As a Maine-ah, it's important that I use my blueberries well....and often!! I have got a couple recipes that are truly near and dear to my heart. There is one blueberry dish that eludes me, however:
Blueberry Crisp
There is something about a crisp that defies any of my cooking abilities. But, lucky for me, the is someone in my family who makes the best darned crisp around. I invited her over to do some cooking lessons with my Munchkin, who is a fan of working in the kitchen. Now, I have to be honest here and say that I do have some ulterior motives for inquiring about cooking lessons for the munchkin. Not only do they bake the best dishes when they work in the kitchen....but we get to keep 'um!!!! He, he, he, he....
It was nice of my MIL to take pity on poor crisp-less Missy this time around and write down the recipe. :-) Here, in all it's splendor, is the recipe I've been dreaming of:

Mimi's Crisp
Frozen blueberries
1 stick butter (room temp)
1 cup Oats (old fashioned)
 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup white flour
1tsp cinnamon
1tsp nutmeg

~Heat oven to 350.  Cover bottom of 8x11"pan with frozen blueberries, as many as you would like (at least an inch deep, would be good). Mix the spices in with the sugar and flour. Mix butter into that and then add the rest of dry ingredients. Make sure it is good and stirred and then plop and smooth over the blueberries. Bake, covered for 25 minutes, and then uncovered for another 25....or until brownish and crispy on top. 
This dish MUST be enjoy with some vanilla ice cream. Seriously, I insist. :-)
