Rhubarb Crisp

June 26, 2023

It’s that time of year when all those April showers have payed off and the rhubarb in the garden is finally starting to turn that vibrant red. Nothing says spring/summer around here like fresh rhubarb desserts! I feel like rhubarb is one of those underrated….vegetables. I think it’s a vegetable, no seeds means vegetable right? Anyways, this rhubarb tart is one of my favorite desserts to whip up Tart chunks of rhubarb, a sweet crunchy topping, plus a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you have yourself the perfect spring/summer dessert!

Rhubarb Crisp

  • Servings: 8
  • Print


  • 5 cups of rhubarb, sliced into ½ inch pieces (around 8 stalks depending on size)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ½ tbsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ cup salted butter, cold and cut into cubes


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Mound rhubarb in and 8×8 baking dish.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl combine dry ingredients and then cut in your cold butter cubes. I tend to work it with my hands to get it to the consistency of beach sand.
  4. Sprinkle evenly on top of the rhubarb and bake for 45 minutes.
  5. Allow to sit for around 30 minutes at room temperature and then serve

It’s super delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream. Store leftovers in the fridge.

I hope you enjoy this easy dessert! What are some of your go to rhubarb recipes?
