Tuesdays With Dorie: Strawberry Rhubarb Double Crisp April 12, 2011

This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Sarah of Teapots and Cakestands.  She picked Dorie’s Strawberry Rhubarb Double Crisp which is located on pages 420-421 in Baking:From My Home to Yours.  Anything strawberry rhubarb reminds me of Mike and his parents because the first time I had a strawberry rhubarb pie was when Mike’s mom (my mother-in-law) made one for dessert.  It was very tasty, and I loved it.  The first time I tried my hand at making the pie for Mike I didn’t bake it long enough because the rhubarb was still a bit crunchy.

After I had made the pie a few times I knew that I should slice the rhubarb pretty thin just to make sure it cooks in time.  For this recipe I was actually worried about the rhubarb not cooking enough since you cook the strawberry mixture first.  So I decided to slice the rhubarb up relatively thin and cook it with the strawberry filling just to make sure.  It turned out perfectly.  I love Dorie’s idea of a double crisp with the crisp topping as a topping and a crust.

This tasted great straight out of the oven, and it when perfectly with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.  Unfortunately, I made the crisp last week and when it came out of the oven it was already dark outside.  I took a few pictures inside, but they just didn’t turn out as good.  What I should have done was taken a picture of the crisp with ice cream on top.  But once I had it portioned out for myself there was no way that I was going to take the time to get the camera, take it outside, and take a picture.  All I wanted was to take they first bite, and it was perfect.  The ground ginger and the crystallized ginger have the crisp a nice spiciness which I appreciated.

This is definitely something I will be making again because it was very simple and extremely yummy 🙂

    I too loved the ginger in this recipe, but I do love ginger. Sometimes it is difficult to photo food, especially when you don’t want to eat melted, soupy ice cream.
    Have a great day.

    I really liked the ginger in the crisp topping. I hadn’t baked with rhubarb before and I used frozen, which I was worried was cut to thick, but it worked out just fine!
