Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Tart rhubarb, fresh ripe strawberries, bright orange zest and warm vanilla are the perfect pie filling.  Top this off with a sweet and buttery brown sugar and oat crisp for the perfect dessert!

I’m a big fan of any fruit based dessert.  I would pick an apple, peach or blueberry pie over cake any day of the week

My family members are more ‘cake’ people then ‘pie’ people but they absolutely love my Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

So let’s get baking!

We are starting off with around 12 ounces of rhubarb (4-5 stalks) and roughly 4 cups of strawberries

Remove the tops of the rhubarb along with the bottoms and dice into even pieces

Using a small spoon core out the strawberries

Next slice the smaller strawberries in half and quarter the larger ones

Then the orange zest and vanilla

Whisk the cornstarch in with the orange juice and pour in the bowl (this will act as a thickener)

Toss all ingredients together to combine

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and place a baking dish on top

20170522_164725

Add the strawberry and rhubarb mixture into the baking dish and set aside

I like the fruit to meld 10-15 minutes so the sugar and juice can start to break things down a bit

20170522_164753

Preheat your oven to 350 F

Let’s start on the crisp (topping)

We will need 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of oatmeal (not instant), 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of lightly packed dark brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of kosher salt and 1 1/2 sticks of cold unsalted butter

20170522_175602

Add the dry ingredients into a stand mixer and mix to combine

20170522_175740

Cut the butter into slices

20170522_175922

Add them into the mixing bowl with the combined dry ingredients

20170522_180037

Mix on low speed until the butter is broken up and you’re left with crumbles

20170522_180343

Sprinkle the crumbles over the top of the fruit until completely covered

20170522_180627

Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour

20170522_180707

When you remove it from the oven the fruit should be bubbling and set and the topping should be a golden brown

Let it rest a few minutes but serve it warm
