The sweet strawberries and the tart rhubarb blend well together in this yummy goodness. If you are unfamiliar with rhubarb, it is a very tart vegetable that masquerades as a fruit in summer desserts.
This dessert definitely needs to be paired with your favorite ice cream or whipped topping. My favorite is homemade whipped cream. Enjoy!
Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp
- 3 cups sliced strawberries
- 3 cups sliced rhubarb
- ¾ cup sugar
- 3 Tbsp cornstarch
- juice of 1 lemon
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ¾ cup flour
- ½ cup (1 stick) cold butter, cut into small pieces
- ¾ cup oats
- ½ tsp cinnamon
In a large bowl, mix together the strawberries, rhubarb, sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. Pour into a 11 X 7 baking dish prepared with non-stick spray.
In a separate bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour and butter until the mixture is crumbly. A clean hand or a pastry blender make this easy. Stir in oats and cinnamon. Sprinkle the crisp mixture on top of the fruit.
Bake at 375 degrees for 40 – 50 minutes or until fruit is bubbly and the crisp is golden browned.
