Strawberry-rhubarb crisp

Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp Recipe

A crisp is similar to a cobbler, except that it has a topping sprinkled evenly over the fruit that bakes to create a crunchy topping. In our Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp recipe, sweet strawberries and tart rhubarb bubble up under a crispy brown sugar and nut topping. With or without a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream, this simple summertime dessert is sure to please!
