6 medium stalks rhubarb, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 cups (8 ounces) strawberries, hulled and halved lengthwise
1/2 cup (4 ounces) sugar
1 cup (5 ounces) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (1.5 ounces) old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup (3 ounces) sugar
1/3 cup (2.5 ounces) firmly packed golden brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1. Position a rack in the middle of the oven, and preheat to 350 degrees F. Have ready a 2.5 quart ceramic
or glass pie dish or baking dish.
2. For the Filling: In a large bowl, stir together the rhubarb, strawberries and sugar until well mixed.
Pour into the baking dish, and set aside.
3. For the Topping: In a large bowl, stir together the flour, rolled oats, sugars, cinnamon and salt until
well blended. Stir in the melted butter until evenly moistened crumbs form. Spoon the crumb mixture over
4. Bake the crisp until the rhubarb is tender when tested with a toothpick, the juices are bubbling, and
the topping is golden brown, 35-40 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool for 10 minutes. Serve
Rhubarb can be left out for a simple strawberry crisp. The crisp can be cooled, covered with plastic wrap and stored at room temperature for up to 2 days. Rewarm in a 250-degree F oven for 15 minutes before serving. Preferably with a substantial scoop of vanilla ice cream.
