Ruby Rhubarb Ginger Crunch (cont.)
Directions:

  • Combine rhubarb and cranberries with maple syrup.
  • Let stand 15 minutes, tossing often.
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a deep-dish pie pan with non-stick spray.
  • Add flour, vanilla, and ginger to fruit; toss well.
  • Spread in pie pan. Bake 20 minutes.

Topping: Combine flour, sugar, and nuts. Cut in cold margarine with pastry cutter, a fork, or even your clean fingers. Refrigerate while fruit bakes. When fruit has baked 20 minutes, sprinkle topping over it and continue to bake until bubbly, 30-40 minutes longer. Serve warm by itself or with a small scoop of a cold topping.
