Berry Delicious Rhubarb Crisp Recipe

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Lavender Lynn

What a perfect springtime dessert! It's filled with color and fresh fruit flavor the whole family will savor. Grate about a tablespoonful of fresh orange or lemon zest and add to the crumb mixture for extra flavor. ** If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

What a delicious and warming dessert to enjoy on a cold winter's night.Except for one exception, I followed the recipe as written.The only difference I made was to use apples, instead of blackberry. This was a lovely crisp and the whole family enjoyed it with custard for dinner. We especially loved the crisp topping.Thanks Lavender Lynn we will be enjoying this one again.
