Almond Rhubarb Cobbler Recipe

Field editor Pat Habiger of Spearville, Kansas notes, "In spring, I frequently make this tangy biscuit-topped treat."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 6 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • Toasted slivered almonds, optional


  • 1. In a large saucepan, bring 1/2 cup sugar and water to a boil. Add the rhubarb. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until tender, about 5 minutes. Combine flour and remaining sugar; stir into rhubarb mixture. Return to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Stir in butter and almonds. Reduce heat to low; stir occasionally or until butter is melted.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients; cut in butter until crumbly. Whisk egg and milk; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened. Pour hot rhubarb mixture into a 2-qt. shallow baking dish. Drop topping into six mounds over the rhubarb mixture.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. If desired, sprinkle cobbler with almonds after removing from oven. Serve warm. Yield: 6 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.

"This was quick to put together and used ingredients on hand, so it was perfect when I wanted to use my frozen rhubarb in something. I didn't care for the added crunch of the almonds. They felt out of place in the dessert and will probably leave them out next time."
