Strawberry Rhubarb Cookie Crumble


In looking for ways to use a Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix that I found in my pantry I came across a recipe for Triple Berry Cookie Crumble on the Betty Crocker website.  Although it sounded wonderful with  blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries, I decided to use rhubarb from my garden along with strawberries.  This was a big hit at our house.  The cookie crumble topping was so good paired with the classic combination of strawberries and rhubarb.  So quick and easy, this is a recipe that I look forward to trying with many different combinations of berries or fruits.

  8. This looks just amazing! Classic combo, so good. Here's an irony of living in Israel: strawberry season and rhubarb season don't co-occur! I froze some strawberries and am waiting patiently for rhubarb so that I can still enjoy them together.
