Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp


My friend Lisa gave me a huge bag of chopped rhubarb fresh from her garden! I decided to put it to work in a Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp. The recipe is adapted from one I found here. Of course- I had to mess with it a little :) It was great! A perfectly summery dessert.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

  • 2 1/2 cups rhubarb, pieces
  • 3/4 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons fruit juice

    Ingredients for Topping:

  • 2/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 5 tablespoons whole wheat flour

  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 5 tablespoons pecans (or walnuts), chopped

    Instructions:
