Farmer’s Market Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp

Posted on

Let your three year old hold the reins at the farmer’s market and you’ll end up with an extra handful of strawberries and a big bunch of rhubarb. Though, not exactly the heirloom tomatoes and basil I was planning to purchase, the strawberries and rhubarb are both seasonally and flavorfully perfect.  The kid knows what he’s doing.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp with Walnut Streusel Topping


For the Strawberry Rhubarb Mixture:

  • 4 cups of Rhubarb, stalks only, chopped into half-inch pieces
  • 4 cups of Strawberries, halved or quartered
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Cornstarch
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon

For the Streusel:

  • 1 stick of Butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 2/3 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Chopped Walnuts
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon


For the Strawberry-Rhubarb Mixture – Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Lightly butter a 9 x 13 baking dish. Combine strawberries, chopped rhubarb, sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon in a bowl. Pour into the buttered baking dish.

For the Streusel – Combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and chopped walnuts in a bowl. Pour the butter over the mixture.  Stir to combine.  The mixture should be crumbly.

Sprinkle the streusel topping over the strawberry-rhubarb mixture. (I used a 9 inch round baking dish and had a bit of extra streusel, but it should be just the right amount for a 9 x 13 baking dish.) Bake in a 375 degrees oven for 40-45 minutes, until hot and bubbly.

Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Delicious! I wonder what my three year old will come up with next week!
