Strawberry Rhubarb Filling

  • 1 pound fresh rhubarb, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, sliced
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • teaspoon salt

Brown Butter Streusel

  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¾ cup old fasioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • teaspoon salt


  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Continue heating the butter, stirring frequently. As the butter cooks, it will begin to bubble and foam. Continue cooking and stirring until the butter turns golden brown with little browned bits on the bottom of the pan, about 5-8 minutes. Transfer the butter to a small bowl and place in the refrigerator to let it cool slightly while you prepare the strawberry rhubarb filling.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Add all of the strawberry rhubarb filling ingredients to a 8-9 inch skillet or baking dish and mix together.
  • Add the dry streusel ingredients to a medium bowl and mix together. Pour in the brown butter and use a fork to mix together until combined but crumbly. Sprinkle the streusel over the strawberry rhubarb filling.
  • Place the skillet or baking dish on a parchament lined baking sheet just in case the filling bubbles over. Bake uncovered for about 40-45 minutes, or until the edges are bubbling and the fruit is tender.
  • Let cool for at least one hour. Serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!
