What a treat!! My good friend, Audrey, just brought me a big bag of superior rhubarb. Looks like I'll be making rhubarb cobbler later today, too. I have a good recipe from my Grandma Goldie that I'll share later on. It is "thee" best cobbler recipe ever as some of you know that have already tried it. Makes a great picnic/potluck dish. Off to the kitchen to take care of the rhubarb!
Here's the recipe.......
Grandma Goldie's Rhubarb Cobbler
In medium bowl mix:4 cups cut-up rhubarb
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons flour
Mix together and spread in 9 x 13 " pan
Next mix:1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
Add 2 tablespoons melted butter to this dry mixture, then blend in one beaten egg. Mix all til crumbly and then sprinkle over top of rhubarb mixture. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes at 350 or until crust is golden.
Recipe is given for a rhubarb cobbler although cherries, blueberries, peaches, and apples all work well with this cobbler crust. I think it must be the egg that makes this crust so crunchy. The cobbler is best when warm from the oven with a big scoop of ice cream on top!
