What could be more comforting than a fruit cobbler fresh from the oven? Here's a simple way to enjoy a springtime twist on the comforting favorite using fresh rhubarb and cherry pie filling. —Jill Head, Hilbert, Wisconsin
“I'm a 14 year-old with Celiac Disease. It's hard to find desserts I can eat, so I created this healthy and gluten-free recipe,” says Mikhala Stutzman of Granger, Iowa. “Splenda adds sweetness without calories in this great, low-calorie dessert anyone can enjoy!”
I came up with this recipe after hearing a friend fondly recall his grandmother's rhubarb dumplings. My son especially likes rhubarb, and this old-fashioned dessert lets those special stalks star.

Chock-full of berries and rhubarb, this pretty cobbler is the perfect finale for a dinner for two. Pecans in the topping and the delicious dessert sauce make it extra special. —Lillian Julow, Gainesville, Florida
An attractive and unique dessert, this crisp is also a popular breakfast dish at our house, served with a glass of milk rather than topped with ice cream. Since it calls for lots of rhubarb, it's a great use for the bounty you harvest.

Carol Gallagher, a missionary in Paupa, New Guinea asked our Test Kitchen to lighten up this favorite. Cream was replaced with 2% milk, orange marmalade was substituted for three of the original’s egg yolks, and the sugar was reduced. The resulting makeover recipe has half the total fat and 60% less saturated fat.--Taste of Home's Test Kitchen
