An attractive dessert, this crisp is also a popular breakfast dish at our house, served with a glass of milk rather than topped with ice cream. Because it calls for lots of rhubarb, it's a great use for the bounty you harvest. —Rachael Vandendool, Barry's Bay, Ontario
One day, I wanted to use up a leftover can of cherry pie filling that I had in the refrigerator. I added some diced rhubarb, then used a cobbler topping I liked. It turned into a favorite—fast!
After many years of farming, my husband and I are now enjoying a new life in our new house, built on a lake.
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
"Can I have the recipe?" is the question I'm always asked whenever I serve this delicious dessert. Rhubarb is generally ready first thing in spring, and these bars are a great way to welcome the season.
This recipe—along with a bundle of rhubarb—was given to me by my husband's grandmother when we were first married. I had never cared for rhubarb, but after trying this dessert, I changed my mind. Now my children dig in, too!
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. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia
Here's a delightful way to use up your harvest of rhubarb. Fresh from the oven, the bubbling dessert is wonderful with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.—Ruth Johnson, Elkton, Maryland
Tender dumplings and a sweet, tangy rhubarb sauce combine to make this quick and comforting dessert. "We love it alone or with ice cream," reports Doris Peterson of Mesa, Arizona. "If you prefer, replace the rhubarb with blueberries."
Every time I've entered our Boone County Bake-Off, I've won a blue ribbon. Last summer, when the category was rhubarb, this recipe was the grand champion! See if your family thinks it's a winner, too. The orange juice and peel give it real zest.
Along with cooking and sharing recipes with my two daughters and friends, I love gardening and bird-watching.
