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


  • 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


  • 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.

"All in all good, but would decrease brown sugar next time. A little too sweet for my taste."

"Excellent recipe! I used all fresh fruit and substituted blueberries for the blackberries, as they are cheaper and more widely available. I received many compliments and requests for the recipe!"

"I loved it!!"

Reviewed May. 6, 2009

"I tried this recipe and it turned out ok. Of course, I didn't have any blackberries and they are very expensive here, so I used some frozen mixed berries. They worked fine, but there were too many flavors, I thought. I also tried the orange zest in the crust, but didn't like it much. So--the recipe is ok if you follow it, I guess. --Ruth, Grand Junction CO"

"We all really enjoyed this recipe even heated up the next day served with vanilla ice cream. The only problem I noticed was the rhubarb was not as soft as I would have liked it - I think that can be fixed by slicing the rhubarb thinner. Great recipe for my recipe box!!"
