I was excited to make this crisp. I was going to use garden fresh rhubarb, Mother Nature had other plans. It has been snowing off and on for the last two weeks--my fresh rhubarb is still a couple of weeks away. There was no rhubarb to be found, fresh or frozen in my smallish town.
But I do love a good crisp so I purchased a bag of Dole Frozen Mixed Berries with Cranberries. It was a good choice. This crisp begins with a simple flour, oatmeal, brown sugar and melted butter crust. It gets interesting when ground ginger and crystallized ginger are added. What a great flavor addition.
Half of the crisp mix is patted in a square baker. The bag of frozen fruit was sprinkled on top. This was topped with a yummy fresh strawberry filling. The remainder of the crisp was sprinkled on top. This smelled so good as it baked, fruit and ginger filled the air.
We ate it warm topped with a little ice cream. It contains enough fruit and oats to be a breakfast food too!
Out hostess this week is Sarah she will have the complete recipe on her blog.TWD bakers come up with great substitutions and variations. I'm always amazed with their creations, I learn so much each week.
