Berry Delicious Rhubarb Crisp Recipe

Berry Delicious Rhubarb Crisp Recipe

What a perfect springtime dessert! It's filled with color and fresh fruit flavor the whole family will savor. I sometimes grate about a tablespoonful of fresh orange or lemon zest and add to the crumb mixture for extra flavor. —Sharon Hadinger, Dublin, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake 25 min. YIELD:9 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 cups diced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • Vanilla ice cream

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, oats, butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla and cinnamon. Set aside 1 cup for topping; press remaining crumb mixture into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Top with rhubarb, strawberries and blackberries.
  • 2. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in remaining vanilla. Pour over fruit; sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly. Serve with ice cream. Yield: 9 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
