Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

My husband grows rhubarb in our garden because I love strawberry rhubarb things.  When I was pregnant with my daughter, I think I ate millions of strawberry rhubarb pies.  For some reason, probably the weird weather, our rhubarb was ready to be picked this week, so I made a delicious strawberry rhubarb crisp last night.  Be sure and peel your rhubarb really well.  I always have to use a knife, my vegetable peeler doesn’t work well with rhubarb.

Ingredients:
1 stick of room temperature butter
2 cups rhubarb, peeled and sliced
2 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup sugar
1 1/3 cups flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup quick cooking oats

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In an 9 inch baking dish, combine rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, 1/3 cup flour and cinnamon.
Combine remaining flour, brown sugar, oats, and butter.  Mix using your clean hands. Sprinkle over rhubarb-strawberry mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 35-45 minutes until topping is crisp and brown. Top with homemade whip or ice cream.
