Rhubarb Crisp Recipe
Topping.. this is as simple as it gets.
- 2 cups of all purpose flour
- 1 cup of room temp butter
- 1 cup of packed brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp of salt
Mix together with pastry cutter or washed clean hands, its mixed together perfect when you can give the crumb a gentle squeeze and it will hold its shape but when touched gently break apart.
12 cups of washed, clean rhubarb that is med chopped, add 1 tbsp. of flour (2 if you want it thicker sauced) and 1 cup of sugar.. You know your rhubarb best.. one cup of sugar is pretty standard to Canada Ruby Red Rhubarb.. but I can use less sugar when I make it with German Green Pie..
In a bowl, mix the cut rhubarb pieces, flour and sugar and stir it together, coating each piece, then pour it into a 9 by 13 pan.
Over that top, put the crumble.. always make it just slightly higher in the middle with just a bit less on the edges.. Bake in a 350 for approx. 40 min, or until its top is golden brown and the sides are edged with bubbling rhubarb juice 🙂
Can be served hot with ice cream or cold plain or with whipped cream.
