Preheat oven to
350°. Place the strawberries, rhubarb, white sugar and 3 TB. VANILLA SUGAR
in a bowl, toss gently and set aside.
To prepare topping, mix the flour, ½ Cup sugar, baking powder and salt
in a bowl and stir to blend. Cut the butter into small pieces, put into
the flour mixture and blend with your fingers until the mixture resembles
coarse crumbs. Add the milk and stir just to blend.
Butter a 9" by 13" baking pan (we prefer glass), place the fruit in the
pan, and spoon the topping over the fruit. Spread it out with a spoon
as best as you can, but don't worry if it doesn't reach to all the edges,
as it will smooth out while baking. Sprinkle the crust with the remaining
tablespoon of VANILLA SUGAR. Place the pan in the oven for 40-50 minutes,
until the crust is golden brown. Let cool before cutting and serving.
