Summer berries never last long enough, and I wanted to make sure and take advantage of the beautiful ripe berries in my fridge before it was too late. Fresh strawberries, raspberries, cherries, and some tender rhubarb - all the red fruits that we love so much!
I really wanted a deep red for this crisp, so I stayed away from fresh blueberries and sweet blackberries. Have you ever seen such a beautiful shade of red? And just imagine how sweet the fresh strawberries, sweet raspberries, tart rhubarb and juicy cherries taste together. it is such a wonderful flavor combination and SO GOOD!
And there's always someone who loves oatmeal cookies at my house (I'll protect the guilty one!) that is scooping up as much of the topping as they can, and leaving the sweet and tart fruit filling behind. It's a good thing that it is so good on top of a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!
The hardest part is waiting for this to cool down to room temperature and thicken up slightly, but it just tastes so wonderful when it's warm from the oven! Hope you love this sweet summery berry treat as much as we do!
