Apple-Rhubarb Crisp (Recipe)


A subtle and unexpected hint of cloves really adds a perfect note to this easy-to-make and delicious apple crisp. Planning ahead? You can prepare the topping the day before; chill in the fridge.

Apple-Rhubarb Crisp



  • 3/4 Cup flour
  • 3/4 Cup packed golden brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup oats
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cloves
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped walnuts


  • 4 Cups Golden Delicious or Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, & cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 1/2 pound)
  • 3 Cups rhubarb, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 3/4 pound)
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Baking Dish: Glass 8x8x2.

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
