Food Friday: Rhubarb Crisp

Rhubarb Crisp - Hot out of the oven!
It’s rhubarb season!  This Food Friday post is an old family recipe for Rhubarb Crisp. It is colorful and oh, so tasty! The crumb topping works well for apple or cherry crisp, but rhubarb is my favorite! Bake up a pan of this sweet and tart dessert tonight!

Rhubarb Crisp

Crumb Topping
1 Cup sifted flour
¾ Cup rolled oats
1 Cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
½ Cup melted butter

Combine dry ingredients. Pour melted butter over dry ingredients and stir until texture is uniform.  Set aside.

Fruit Filling 
4 Cups diced rhubarb
1 Cup sugar
2 Tbs cornstarch
1 Cup water
1tsp vanilla

Place rhubarb in an 8x8 inch baking pan. Combine sugar, cornstarch and water in a saucepan.  Heat and stir until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.  Pour over rhubarb.  Top with crumb topping.  Bake at 350◦ for one hour.  Serve warm as is or top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Yum!

This recipe can easily be doubled for larger crowds.
