Rhubarb Mandarin Crisp Recipe

Rhubarb Mandarin Crisp Recipe

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. -Rachael Vandendool, Barry's Bay, Ontario
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + standing Bake: 40 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 5 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • Ice cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, toss the rhubarb, sugar and tapioca; let stand for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Top with the oranges.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, oats, flour and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; sprinkle evenly over oranges.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until top is golden brown. Serve with ice cream if desired. Yield: 12 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.
