Strawberry Rhubarb Cherry Crisp

This is a recipe I made using the bits of fruit I had in my fridge – about a pint of strawberries, a few stalks of rhubarb and a couple cups of sweet cherries.  I weighed the total all of the fruit together, and it was about 1.75 lb.  And then I (roughly) measured the amounts, once they were sliced.  

You can use any type of summer fruits or berries you want – cherries, raspberries, rhubarb, strawberries, blueberries even. I think the only thing is to be sure you don’t have more than 1/2 lb of Strawberries, or you may end up with liquid-y fruit.  If you do put more strawberries in, maybe increase the cornstarch by a couple extra teaspoons.

For the Fruit:

  • 3 c chopped rhubarb, 1/2” pieces
  • 2 c Sweet Cherries, halved and pitted
  • 2 c hulled and quartered Strawberries, around 1 pint container
  • 1/2 c Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Tbls. Cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 Tbls. Lemon Juice (about 1/2 lemon)

For the Crisp:

  • 2/3 c AP Flour
  • 1/2 c Brown Sugar (light or dark is fine)
  • 2 Tbls. Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 c (1 stick) Unsalted Butter, cut into 1/2” cubes
  • 3/4 c Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 c Sliced Almonds




Prepare the Fruit:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F (Standard) or 335F (Convection, fan).
  2. Place the cut fruits in a large bowl, then add the sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. Stir until all of the sugar is dissolved. Set aside while you make the crisp.

Make the Crisp:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, white sugar, and salt. 
  2. Using a pastry cutter, 2 knives, or your fingertips, cut in the butter pieces until the largest are about pea-sized. 
  3. Add the oats and almonds, stir.
  4. Pour the fruit into a 2-qt. Baking dish – I used a ceramic pie pan, but you could use an 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish instead.
  5. Sprinkle crisp mixture over the top, covering all of the fruit.
  6. Place crisp on a baking sheet (to catch any drips), and into the oven for 45-55 minutes, until fruit is bubbly and top is golden brown.
  7. Cool at least 20 minutes prior to serving.  Top with Ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
