The Best Rhubarb Crisp Recipe

My favorite rhubarb crisp recipe: simple to make, and shamelessly delicious because of one word: butter -- and lots of it.


Fruit Filling

  • 8 cup rhubarb, cut up/diced
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tsps. cinnamon


  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsps. cinnamon
  • 3 sticks butter


1. Put the rhubarb in a large bowl and sprinkle with 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and 2 tsp cinnamon. Mix until rhubarb is well coated. Pour rhubarb into 9x13 pan.

2. Place all other ingredients in big mixing bowl and cut the butter in with a pastry blender until butter is evenly distributed and mixture is crumbly. Pour on top of rhubarb in pan.

3. Bake in 350 degree oven for 60-70 minutes. Top should be browned and fruit filling should be soft and bubbly. Enjoy!
