Donna’s Apple-Rhubarb Crisp


4 cups golden delicious apples, peeled, cored, and diced

3 cups rhubarb, cut into 1/2″ pieces

3 tablespoons Splenda or sugar

2 teaspoons flour

1 teaspoon vanilla


1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup rolled oats

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

5 tablespoons butter or margarine

1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a 7 x 11 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, combine all filling ingredients. Spoon into baking pan. Using the same bowl, combine all topping ingredients. Cut butter into flour mixture until coarse clumps form. Sprinkle on top of apples and rhubarb. Bake for 45 – 50 minutes or until lightly brown on top and fruit is tender.
