Mostly Rhubarb Crisp

Rhubarb and strawberries are in season at the same time and frequently get baked together-sometimes at rhubarb's expense. Not here! Rhubarb is front and center in these pretty pink crisps sweetened with just a bit of strawberry jam. If you have some cinnamon on hand, add a pinch to spice up the filling and topping.

recipe tools

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

For the streusel topping: Put the flour and salt in a medium bowl and, using your hands, rub in the brown sugar. Stir in the melted butter with a rubber spatula until the mixture is evenly moistened. Pop it in the freezer while you make the rhubarb filling.

For the rhubarb filling: Toss together the rhubarb, flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the strawberry preserves. Cut the cold butter into little pieces and stir into the rhubarb mixture.

Divide the rhubarb filling among four 4-ounce ramekins. Top with the streusel topping, squeezing and crumbling it to make both larger clumps and sandier bits.

Bake the ramekins on a baking sheet until the filling is bubbly and the streusel is crisp, about 20 minutes. Serve warm or cooled with vanilla ice cream.
