Apple-Rhubarb Crisp

Apple-Rhubarb Crisp

Ready in 30 minutes

My mother has made this so often she doesn't need the recipe. It's more complicated than some crisp recipes but well worth the extra work. Serve warm with ice cream or table cream.

"I thawed out the last of my rhubarb and decided to try this recipe. The combination of apples and rhubarb has such a wonderful flavor and when covered with the crunchy walnut topping...made an absolutely delicious dessert. I'm glad I made a double batch because it won't last long."

We needed to substitute a bag of cranberries as rhubarb was not in the market- but you know this turned out fantastic!

oooh- VERY GOOD! If you like rhubarb or apple separately, you will enjoy this! It tastes like apple crisp with the zing of rhubarb. More work, but worth it.
