Grilled Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp
  • 6  cups  sliced fresh strawberries (about 1-1/2 lb.)
  • 4  cups  sliced fresh rhubarb or frozen unsweetened sliced rhubarb (about 1 lb.)
  • 1  cup  granulated sugar
  • 4  teaspoons  quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 3/4  cup  coarsely crushed shortbread cookies (about 12 cookies)
  • 1/3  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 3  tablespoons  packed brown sugar
  • 2  tablespoons  butter
  •  Whipped cream (optional)

1. In a large bowl combine strawberries, rhubarb, granulated sugar, quick-cooking tapioca, and salt. (If using frozen fruit, let mixture stand for 40 minutes or until fruit is partially thawed but still icy.) In a 2-quart disposable foil pan place the fruit mixture. Cover pan tightly with foil.

2. For topping, in a small bowl combine crushed shortbread cookies, flour, and brown sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside.

3. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around edge of grill. Test for medium heat over center of grill. Place foil pan on rack in the center of grill. Cover; grill for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly on edges. Uncover pan. Sprinkle topping evenly over fruit mixture in foil pan. Cover grill; cook for 6 to 8 minutes more or until mixture is bubbly and fruit has thickened. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust for indirect cooking. Place foil pan on grill rack over burner that is unlit. Grill as above.) Cool on wire rack for 20 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream. Makes 6 servings.

From the Test KitchenOven Method:
  • Prepare as above through step 2 except you may substitute a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cover fruit mixture and bake 30 to 40 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with topper. Bake 6 to 8 minutes more. Serve as above.
