How To Make mom's rhubarb crisp

  • 1
    With a pastry blender, mix the melted butter, oatmeal, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon until crumbly.
  • 2
    Press 3/4 of the crumb mixture into the bottom of a greased 9x9 baking dish. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 3
    Sprinkle the diced rhubarb over the crust.
  • 4
    In a small saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, water, and corn starch.
  • 5
    Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally. Continue to boil for 2-3 minutes until the liquid looks clear. Do not burn.
  • 6
    Remove the simple syrup from the heat and add the vanilla extract.
  • 7
    Pour the syrup over the rhubarb.
  • 8
    Sprinkle the rest of the crumble mixture over the rhubarb.

    Bake for 55-60 minutes. The edges should be bubbly and the crumble should be toasted in color.
