Easier than Pie but Just as Delicious!

Best Ever Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Aside from the fact that this dessert tastes delicious, it’s also super easy to make compared to other desserts (like pie). In just a few simple steps, this scrumptious treat can be on the table and ready to enjoy!

You’ll want to start by preparing the sweet fruit mixture. While the oven is preheating, grab a large mixing bowl and combine the sliced strawberries and rhubarb with the cornstarch and granulated sugar. Once it’s sufficiently blended, pour the mixture into a casserole dish and spread it into an even layer.

In another bowl, add the ground cinnamon, all-purpose flour, rolled oats, diced butter, and brown sugar. You can use your hands, a fork, or even a pastry blender to combine these ingredients until you have a slightly chunky mixture. You don’t need it to be totally smooth. Carefully add this concoction on top of the strawberry mixture and place the casserole dish into the oven. Once the top layer is a pretty, golden brown color, your strawberry rhubarb crisp will be ready to eat! 

Fruity Desserts are Perfect for Warmer Weather

Best Ever Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

We love fruity desserts, especially in the warmer months. Personally speaking, I always equate fruity flavors with spring and summer, but there’s another reason to love this dessert: ice cream! We like to serve this strawberry rhubarb crisp hot. If you have the calories to spare, it pairs wonderfully with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Just picture yourself sitting on the back porch, enjoying a serving of this tasty dessert on a hot summer evening. Of course, it’s also just as tasty served cold and on its own! Don’t be shy; give it a try!
