Rhubarb-Pineapple Crisp Recipe

Rhubarb-Pineapple Crisp Recipe

We grow our own rhubarb, and I enjoy using it in new recipes. When I first tried this fruity crisp years ago, I thought the tangy pineapple would be too much. I was pleasantly surprised! —Judy Schut, Grand Rapids, MI
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb, thawed and drained
  • 1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/3 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/3 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • Whipped cream, optional


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the rhubarb, pineapple, 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons flour. Transfer to a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate coated with cooking spray.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the oats, cinnamon, salt and remaining sugar and flour. Cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over fruit. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes; serve with whipped cream if desired. 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.

"Good recipe, but, I used a 20-oz. can of sweetened crushed pineapple and the same amount of sugar, and it was still too sour. Next time I'll use more sugar."

"Wow! What a simple preparation for a dessert that's full of flavor. Also easy to make Gluten free as well. I added 1/4 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger to the crumble mix for a bit of zest and it got rave reviews! Definitely keeping this one for my rhubarb collection!"

"easy to make, this very lightly tart dessert is perfect for a summer dessert. I think the only change I'll make is to occasionally use strawberries. This recipe is what my husband refers to as a "keeper.""

"This is the perfect warmer-weather recipe. It's not too much sweet and just a hint of tart. Together with whipped cream, it's the perfect ending."
