Apple Rhubarb Crisp

Easy summer dessert and it tastes great too. My grandma gave me this recipe.

Apple crisp is a traditional dessert. This recipe, though, adds rhubarb which elevates the flavors. The apples are sweet and the rhubarb is lightly tart. Then, the mixture of spices and brown sugar is balanced perfectly. Oatmeal crumble on top is nice and crispy. The tenderness of the fruit and the crunchiness of the topping are a fantastic mix of textures. Easy to make, this is a delicious apple rhubarb crisp. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
