Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp is a simple, easy dessert perfect for spring and summer! Tart rhubarb paired with sweet strawberries that are baked on top of a streusel crust until they are bubbling in their own juices. The finishing touch is an amazing crunchy oat streusel topping. We love serving it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp
Today I was outside planting my flowers while my hubby was working on the garage. Yes we have started another project at the Evinks! We are onto building a garage.
Of course because we are sooooo lucky we have already found difficulties with it…
Our lot slopes about two feet in the backyard which equals a LOT of gravel to build it up. We are talking FIVE loads of gravel! So he was busy leveling out the gravel while I was working on the flowers.
During this time I noticed that I have an abundance of rhubarb. I’ve been busy making Rhubarb Pie, Strawberry Rhubarb Jam, Buttermilk Rhubarb Bread, Strawberry Rhubarb Pie and Rhubarb Crunch, but then decided there was just enough left to make one more dish – this super yummy Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp!
This is my mom’s recipe and I’m telling you it’s a melt in your mouth to die for dessert that I can’t wait for you to try!!
It has both strawberries and rhubarb and it’s especially great topped with ice cream and served warm and fresh out of the oven. I tried it today with cool whip also.
Both options are delicious, but I recommend the warm with ice cream approach!
If you aren’t lucky enough to have rhubarb growing in your backyard, watch for it in the grocery store soon! It’s harvested in the spring and early summer. Look for long, plump stalks.
If you are harvesting it yourself remember to leave the leaves since they are poisonous. Crazy, huh?
Nothing says spring around here like fresh rhubarb desserts. I will travel miles to get this delicious rhubarb dessert when I hear that my Mom is baking it!
- brown sugar
- butter melted
How do you thicken a strawberry rhubarb crisp?
Cornstarch works really well to thicken this crisp recipe.
Do you have to peel rhubarb?
Not at all, the outside of the rhubarb is tender and there is no need to peel it.
How long will this last?
If it doesn’t get gobbled up right away, refrigerated leftovers will last 4-5 days.
