Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp
Some would say you haven’t truly embraced spring until you’ve made our Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp, and we’d be inclined to agree. It’s a simple dessert that relies on the inherent synergy of its ingredients: rhubarb’s bright tang matched with jammy strawberry sweetness, accented by a delicate touch of cardamom, ginger, and orange zest—all topped off with a forever-crunchy, addictively toasty oat and almond crumble. While 1/2 cup of cornstarch might be more than you’re used to seeing for a fruit crisp recipe, note that rhubarb releases a substantial amount of liquid during the baking process. Thus, you need a bit more of the thickening agent in order to yield a lush, syrupy filling rather than one that’s too loosey-juicy. Warm from the oven, this Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp wants nothing more than a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream.
