Mom's Rhubarb Crisp



I have posted this in honor of my Mom.  I just found this handwritten recipe and made this for a recent celebration of a baptism and engagement party.  I knew that serving this dessert on her china set that she gave to my sister would be just the perfect way to say that she lives in all our hearts.  Family and friends were thrilled to have just a little piece of their Grandmother's blessing in their lives.

Rhubarb Crisp
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Stir dry ingredients into medium size bowl to make crumbs 
  2. Put one half of the crumb mixture in the cake pan and press down.
Fruit Mixture
  • 4 cups rhubarb
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  1. Heat oven to 350°
  2. Mix rhubarb, sugar, salt and lemon juice together and spread over crumb mixture.
  3. Top with the rest of the crumbs and bake 35-45 minutes.  
And barely a crumb was left.  Thanks, Mom for sharing life with all of us.

  2. If I'm using frozen rhubarb, should I thaw it first?
