Make Filling

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour and sugar. Add rhubarb, strawberries and lemon juice, and toss to coat
  2. Take 1½ cups of the topping, and mix in with the filling*


  1. Coat a 9” x 9” baking dish with non-stick cooking spray
  2. Pour the filling mixture into the baking dish, and completely cover remaining crisp topping
  3. Place filled dish on parchment-lined sheet pan (to catch any bubbly overflow while baking)
  4. Bake 40-45 minutes, depending on depth and size of dish. Always set timer for lower time, and check for doneness. You should see the fruit starting to bubble up through the topping
  5. Cool about 15 minutes before serving. Serve slightly warm as-is, or topped with ice cream
