Friday Faves...Rhubarb Crisp!

The other day when I was outside trying to bring some semblance of order to my weed filled flowerbeds, I noticed that our rhubarb was humongous!  I cut it way back and made a rhubarb crisp, then froze enough rhubarb to make another later on.  The rhubarb will grow back as well, so there will be more crisps in our future.  A good fruit crisp served warm with a scoop of good vanilla ice cream is my favorite dessert.  Rhubarb makes a delicious tangy, sweet crisp.
-Rhubarb Crisp recipe-
(based on the best berry crisp recipe from my friend A.H.)
Cut up cleaned rhubarb stalks into approximate 1/2 inch chunks.
In microwaveable mixing bowl combine about 8 cups rhubarb 
 1 1/2 cups sugar
6 Tablespoons cornstarch 
Microwave about 10 minutes until juice thickens
Add 1 teaspoon vanilla
In a second mixing bowl mix dry ingredients:
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
 2 cups oats
 1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon baking powder
Grate 1 cup cold butter into dry ingredients
Combine until crumbly
  Spread half of crumb mixture into a greased 9x13 baking dish
and pat it down
Top with rhubarb mixture
Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over the rhubarb
and very gently pat it down
Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees for approximately 40 minutes until golden brown
(Don't forget that scoop of ice cream on top!)

Have a HAPPY Friday
a safe and Blessed weekend!




  1. Oh my goodness, I am going to bookmark this page. I have rhubarb in the garden and this looks incredible. I love that oatmeal topping :)

  2. I can almost taste it now! We had rhubarb in the back corner of our back yard when we moved here many years ago. I had forgotten about it now that my little vintage trailer is resting in that corner. I'm on my way out to check on that corner. It may be that Daffodil is hiding some rhubarb near her winter quarters!

  3. oh Lordy .. eat a bite for me,
    i'm back on program {ww}. sigh...

    1. I do WW online! I gave the whole crisp away. Hub’s has type2 diabetes and can’t eat it, I shouldn’t eat it, so I most often bake and give it away.

  4. Rhubarb is often hard to find if you're not blessed to be able to grow your own. My dad always had rhubarb in the garden and made the most delicious strawberry-rhubarb pie! Great memories! Thanks, Elizabeth!

    1. It's so easy to grow! It's expensive to buy in the stores here.
