Strawberry-rhubarb crisp is a classic dessert that combines the tartness of rhubarb with the sweetness of strawberries, topped with a crunchy oat and brown sugar crumble. Here’s how to make it:


For the filling:

  • – 4 cups sliced rhubarb (about 1/2-inch thick)
  • – 4 cups sliced strawberries
  • – 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • – 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • – 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the topping:

  • – 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • – 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • – 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • – 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • – 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • – 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish or a similar-sized baking dish and set it aside.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced rhubarb, sliced strawberries, granulated sugar, all-purpose flour, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Toss until the fruit is evenly coated in the sugar and flour mixture.

3. Transfer the fruit mixture to the prepared baking dish and spread it out evenly.

4. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, all-purpose flour, light brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and salt for the topping. Stir until well combined.

5. Add the cold butter pieces to the oat mixture. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the oat mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs and the butter is evenly distributed.

6. Sprinkle the oat topping evenly over the fruit mixture in the baking dish, covering it completely.

7. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is golden brown and crisp.

8. Remove the crisp from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.

9. Serve the strawberry-rhubarb crisp warm, optionally topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Enjoy the delicious combination of sweet strawberries and tart rhubarb in this classic fruit crisp. It’s a perfect dessert for spring and summer gatherings, and it’s sure to be a hit with family and friends!
