Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press half of the mixture into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Set remaining crumb mixture aside for topping. Sprinkle rhubarb over crust; set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and cornstarch; gradually whisk in water until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Remove from the heat; whisk in vanilla. Pour over rhubarb. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour or until bubbly and lightly browned. Serve warm with ice cream if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

MY REVIEW

"This cobbler is FANTASTIC! I usually use whatever berries and rhubarb I have in the house - and it always turns out great. I do think the recipe is a bit sweet, so I do reduce the amount of sugar used in with the cornstarch & vanilla."

MY REVIEW

"Loved it!! I used a pound of rhubarb and it was perfect. Slightly tart, but crunchy bottom was very tasty. Would for sure repeat this one."

MY REVIEW

"I loved this! It was delicious. Going forward, I will probably make a couple of changes - I will probably add more rhubarb and cut down a little on the brown sugar (but not much). I will also probably put 2/3 of the crumb mixture on top instead of just half - I love the crunch on top of the tart rhubarb! Absolutely delicious. Even my boyfriend, who doesn't really love fruit-based desserts (he prefers chocolate) went back for seconds!"

"This recipe was too sweet for my taste. I like to taste the tartness of the rhubarb. I would cut the sugar in the boiled mixture down to 2/3 cup. Otherwise it was good."

MY REVIEW

"SORRY, I FORGOT TO MENTION TO YOU THAT YOU WOULD BE BAKING THIS DOUBLED RECIPE IN A 9x13 PAN. FOR GENERAL PURPOSES, WHEN DOUBLING A RECIPE YOU DO NOT DOUBLE ANY OF THE SALT YOU ARE ADDING! IT WILL MAKE THE RECIPE WAY TOO SALTY!"
