Rhubarb Crisp - Nice with strawberries too

A nice rhubarb crisp comfort food.


1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup packed Brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup butter
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon (optional)

Mix together until crumbly. Set aside.


7 cups washed and sliced rhubarb
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 Tsp. grated lemon Zest
pinch of salt


Combine all filling ingredients into a large bowl and mix. Scrape mixture into prepared baking pan. Sprinkle with topping.

Pan will be very full, but will settle as it bakes.

Bake in pre-heated oven set at 350 degrees F. for approximately 1 hour, or until rhubarb is tender and juices are bubbling. Transfer to a rack and let cool.

This is delicious when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen vanilla yogurt.

Thank you for this submission for autumn rhubarb crisp comfort food.

There's something about crisps with any berries or fruits, alone or combined that does make for a great comfort food. I also like the simplicity of the recipes; you can't really get them wrong.

The yogurt would be a great substitution for
the ice-cream, but it would be just as yummy.
