Okay, help me out here. We are putting in new floors so everything had to be moved out of most of the rooms in the house. Including all my recipe books from the bookcase which are now packed in boxes and stored in the back bedroom under other boxes of stuff. So I can't use them right now.

I have more rhubarb and want to make a rhubarb dessert, but am bored with the usual rhubarb crisp. Anyone have a good rhubarb recipe. I've made plenty of crisps and have made sauce to put on ice cream, but am ready for something different!

I love rhubarb! I've been meaning to post a couple of my favorite recipes here for a LONG time..

I'm eating 'Rhubarb Delight' hot from the oven (yum!) so might as well post the recipe. Got this recipe from my aunt when I was a kid and it's been a family favorite ever since -- this is how it's written:

Rhubarb Delight

1 cup flour
1 tbs. sugar
salt to taste
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
Cut in 2 tbs. margarine
Beat 1 egg with 2 tbs. milk and add to dry ingredients. Press dough on bottom of greased pan.

1/3 cup sugar
1 pkg. strawberry jello
3 tbs. flour
Add to approx. 5 cups cut rhubarb, mix well, put on top of dough.

2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
3 tbs. butter
Sprinkle over top. Bake 375F for 45 minutes.

I make this at least a few times a year w/ both fresh and frozen rhubarb. If using frozen you may have to increase baking time. Recipe doesn't specify pan size, but I usually make this in a 9 x 12. I just used a 9 x 9 and it came out great. I'm going to eat the whole thing... I can't resist it. lol!

Anyone want another fav recipe? rhubarb & cheesecake pie! it sounds weird, but trust me, it's GREAT! :beer:

Thanks!! I divided my rhubarb early last year and the new patch took off right away. So I'll have extra rhubarb this year. :D It's out there somewhere under the SNOW!! In just a couple months spring will be here and I'll have RHUBARB and can try these recipes . . . .Thanks!! ( . . . . or maybe lurking down in the bottom of the freezer there's still a container of last years crop . . . ) :lol:

You're welcome, JaneG! I don't know why, but I always crave rhubarb in February. :lol: I love sour things... rhubarb, cranberries, vinegar. :lol: That 'Rhubarb Delight' is easier to make than it sounds and it's really pretty because of the coloring from the strawberry jello. I've tried it with raspberry and cherry jello (in a pinch) but think it's best with strawberry. I use a glass pan and usually reduce the oven temp about 25 degrees so that the bottom doesn't get too brown.

When I bought my house there was snow still on the ground, so I was thrilled when I found a nice patch of rhubarb at the back of the garage. :beer:
