Rhubarb Crisp

I was on a rhubarb kick a few years ago and I planted three rhubarb plants. Two have taken off and produce an amazing amount of rhubarb for us. One little plant just barely survives year after year. I have transplanted it, but still it's not happy. Here is a photo of my rhubarb, iris and hollyhock patch! My grandmas Iris plants did very well this year


I wanted to share this easy recipe for rhubarb crisp. It's easy and delicious!

Total time: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min.

Ingredients:
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3 cups sliced fresh rhubarb
2 cups sliced peeled apples or sliced strawberries
1 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Vanilla Ice Cream Optional (but delicious!)

Directions:
1.  In a large bowl, combine sugar and cornstarch. Add rhubarb and apples or strawberries; toss to coat. Spoon into an 8-in. square baking dish.
2.  In a small bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, butter, flour and cinnamon until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over fruit. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until bubbly and fruit is tender. Serve warm with ice cream if desired. Yield: 8 servings.




Enjoy!
