Classic Old-Fashioned Rhubarb Strawberry Crisp

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by valeriefromWI

A timeless classic! Been in my recipe box since I was a teenager! I believe this came from one of my grandmothers like so many of my cherished recipes :) When I make this for my friends who need to eat gluten free I remove all flour and add 1/3 cup cornstarch to the fruit. I also normally skip the flour in the topping myself, but I love the fruit part best!

This was soooo good! The only changes I made were to use 3/4 cup of sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I reduced the sugar because I was serving the warm crisp with a slightly too sweet homemade vanilla ice cream and wanted it on the tart side. It came out perfect! (1)
