Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

I am so excited to share this Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp with you today.  I first got the idea to make this a few weeks ago, actually as the dessert for our Easter dinner.  I always think of strawberry and rhubarb going together in a pie, but to be honest, I don’t really make pie that often.

I love crisps because they are so simple to make and they taste amazing.  You can pretty much use whatever fruit is in season, toss on some of that crispy topping, bake it until it is golden and bubbly, and if you happen to have some vanilla ice cream on hand (do try), you have a dessert made in heaven.

How to make a crisp

Mix flour, oats, sugar, butter, and a pinch of salt and compact on top of your filling. Bake at 350 degrees until the top is golden and bubbly. For years I’ve been using an apple crisp recipe from Rachel Ray, and this is pretty similar, just with the fruit swapped out.

I baked these in some cute little 6.5 inch Lodge cast iron skillets (check them out HERE, this is my affiliate link), but you can also just bake it in a regular baking dish (8×8 size or close to that).  Since I used two small skillets, they baked a bit faster than when it is in one larger dish.  These were done in 30 minutes, but it would be more like 45 minutes in a larger dish.  You know it is done when the top is golden and the filling is bubbling.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp is perfect for Spring!

I reallllly recommend having some ice cream on hand to serve with this.  In my opinion it takes a crisp from pretty good to AMAZING, especially when the crisp is warm and the ice cream is just starting to melt into it.  Mmmmm-hmmmm.

This Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp is easy to make and is the perfect spring dessert!


For The Filling:

  • 10 ounces sliced rhubarb about 2 cups
  • 10 ounces sliced strawberries about 2 cups
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1/3 cup sugar**
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

For The Crisp Topping:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats not quick cooking
  • 1/4 cup white sugar**
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into cubes (1/2 stick)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Combine all ingredients for the filling in a bowl, toss together until mixed. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine all ingredients for crisp topping. Mix together until incorporated and mixture resembles wet sand (I use my hands for this, but you can use a fork if you prefer).
  • Pour the filling mixture into a baking dish (I used 2 six and a half inch cast iron skillets, but you can also use one 8x8 inch baking dish).
  • Bake until top is golden and filling is bubbly. In the two smaller baking dishes this took 30 minutes. If you use a larger baking dish, it may take 45 minutes to an hour.
  • When done, allow to sit for a few minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream.


*Please remember that ovens vary, as well as your baking dish. Crisp is done when top is golden and filling is bubbling.
**If you have vanilla sugar on hand, use it!

    Sometimes delays…..although I got to watch your video again & it is so charming!! I can so feel you doing this~~so, whistling along, I’m off to make dessert! Thanks for sharing, it’s a terrific video?

  2. 5 stars
    YES! I feel you, I’ve been sitting on the fence weather or not to make youtube channel and upload recipe videos. The long and hard road is a tad off putting so i procrastinate instead and eat a lot of chocolate. Wouldn’t it be great to be a master straight away? Congrats on making your first video, you have inspired me! x

  3. Rhubarb is on my ingredients to get into this season and this looks like the way to start! I have a few of those precious little pans and I am going to fill them with this!

  4. This is a perfect recipe for spring. Rhubarb and strawberries go together so well, especially in a lovely crisp like this.
    Congrats on the video by the way! I really liked it, it was all very upbeat and happy. 🙂

  5. COngrats on the video! It looks so good, it’s hard to believe it is your first one Meghan! That crisp looks fantastic and so perfect for spring!

    Loving your first video with upbeat music and cute little painted nails. I thought that might give you a little giggle…I seriously love strawberry rhubarb crumble and have not had it since we lived in the States more than 8 years ago. I need to get my hands on rhubarb soon so I can make this delicious treat.

    1. Thank you Bobbi! I bet it is hard to find rhubarb in certain parts of the world, I hope you find some! And thanks so much for your compliment! 🙂

  7. I love strawberry rhubarb anything, and love crisps! I think your either a cobbler person or a crisp person and I am definitely a crisps person. I love the way you baked them in their own little pan, and I could eat the whole thing I think. Also, your video was awesome!

  8. 5 stars
    I’m so in love with your video Meghan and the crisp – the combination of rhubarb and strawberries is superb. Also, I want those skillet pans – adorable 🙂

    1. Awww, thank you so much Jane!! That is so sweet of you! I did make a special trip for the pans, I just knew they would be perfect here! 🙂

  9. Oh my gosh, you just described me EXACTLY Meghan. I have been dying to do videos for so long but I just don’t know how to start! Meanwhile you’ve taken off with a bang. I LOVE your video!!! And this gorgeous recipe!

    1. Thank you so much Jess! It can be so intimidating to just start, but when you do it is so much easier than it seemed before! Thanks for your sweet comment!

  10. You did a fabulous job on the video girlfriend! Bravo!!! I have been procrastinating joining the video gang because I’m SO intimidated by the process. Obviously I need to take a page from your book and put some big girl pants on! 😉 This crisp looks fabulous! Strawberry and rhubarb is a delicious combination! And I’m totally with you, I’ll take a crisp over a pie any day because they are so much easier… plus I actually think they taste better since I’m not a huge fan of a lot of crust. I like to taste the filling – especially when the filling is THIS delish! Cheers, sweets!

    1. Thanks so much Cheyanne! I have no doubt that you would kill it at making videos. It actually was not as hard as I thought it would be. Yes, glad we are on the crisp over pie train together. I mean, I will still eat pie, don’t get me wrong. But if I am going to make it, it will probably be a crisp 🙂

  11. I SO loved the video!! It made me smile & I need to order those cute little pans! LOL!
    I actually found rhubarb yesterday, now I’m totally ready to try this recipe…I’d love to have that little upbeat song serenading me as I prep & create, but I’ll find something! Thanks for sharing~~?

  12. First, I love rhubarb! Second, I love crisps! I love these mini sized rhubarb crisp. And finally, I love your video! Well done! The music was perfect….just a happy little tune that made me smile!

  13. Congratulations on your first video Meghan!! It turned out so well!! 😀 I definitely know what you mean about the frustration of learning something new. I felt that way when I first started my blog and spent soooo long just feeling confused and annoyed, and that was long before even publishing a post. Well done for working through the frustration and making a seriously awesome video. Can’t wait to see more of them! Now excuse me while I go and hum that really catchy background music to myself (dum da da da da dum) PS. The crisp itself looks delicious too, but that goes without saying. Yum! 😀

    1. Haha, I had that tune stuck in my head all weekend! I know what you mean about starting the blog, I felt that way too! Now things have gotten easier, but I still struggle with the whole not knowing how to do everything perfectly right away thing 🙂 Thanks Lisa!

    1. Haha, thank you Annie! The nail polish wasn’t even planned, but I feel pretty happy that it worked out that way 🙂

  14. I get like that too when I’m learning something new. Sometimes I get frustrated because I want to know everything about whatever it is RIGHT AWAY and be amazing at it, but, like you said, that’s part of the learning process. But you did an awesome job on that video!! Congrats! You go girl 🙂 !!
    These cast iron skillets are adorable!!! I love cast iron anyway and this size is too cute.
    Love your recipe! What a classic combo & perfect for Spring/Summer. Love that if I entertain I can make these and everyone gets their own cute & tasty dish.

    1. Thank you Dawn! Yep, I am just the same with learning new things! I had to make a special trip to find the cast iron skillets, I had a vision for them! So thank you, I’m glad you like them!

  15. I am exactly the same with learning new things, I tend to delay things because I just don’t feel like facing them at one moment. But the video is great, congratulations! The crisp as well, I love rhubarb!

    1. Yes, it can be so intimidating, but when you push past that hesitation it ussually ends up going pretty well. Thanks so much Adina!

  16. Great video, Meghan! I have yet to try making a video but it’s always at the back of my mind. I love how they show how easy a recipe is to put together. And I love crisps – strawberry and rhubarb are a perfect combo! Pretty pictures, too.

    1. Thanks so much Geraldine! I have been thinking about making a video forever and I finally just did it! I love how easy crisps are too!

  17. 5 stars
    Yes yes yes I know exactly how you feel and totally felt the same way doing my first vid. I LOVe your vid and think you did an amazing job Meghan!! Good for you for pushing past the scary part and just doing it and look how amazing it turned out!! Snaps for Elle 😉

    1. THANK YOU Katy!! Also, I should have known that you would be able to quote one of my favorite movies 🙂

  18. Congrats on your first video! I did the same thing as you-delayed, delayed, delayed-because I felt really intimidated. But like your experience, it was a lot easier than I thought. I like the part in the video where you’re holding a fork to cut the butter in and your hand is like “nah, I’m better than you.” It looks super delicious and I love those little pans!
