I made something fabulous the other evening. I know, it’s not nice to brag, but people, this thing is SO good! I had to share it. I love fruit crisps and cobblers – the buttery, crunchy topping covering that luscious, fruit filling. MMMMmmmmmm….I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.
I wasn’t sure how these three fruits would taste together, but they are great! Of course, with this crisp you can use any fruit that you like – use your favorite or a mixture, or these three – which I have to say I think are my new favorite.

Rhubarb adds a great element of flavor and a nice tartness. You can always add more sugar to make it sweeter if you don’t like tart. I also think rhubarb is about to come into season, so this is a great time to put this on your menu. I actually still have rhubarb in the freezer from last year when a friend brought me a bunch (Thanks Lyd!). I almost always use frozen fruit in crisps and cobblers, just because it’s easier and I like to eat my fresh fruit…well…fresh. When fruit is cheap or in season, I buy extra and freeze it. But you can use fresh or frozen, whichever works for you.
(my baby, Carter, not being dramatic…he just put a pretty large bite into his mouth)
Let me know how you like it! Hopefully you like it as much as we all did.
