Note - you can use fresh or frozen rhubarb for this recipe. If you use frozen rhubarb, thaw it first, in a sieve, over a bowl. Use this excess liquid as part of the 1 cup cold water.


1 cup granulated sugar
3 tbsp. cornstarch
1 cup cold water or *1 cup excess liquid
1 can - 540 ml. - cherry pie filling
1/2 tsp. almond extract
4 cups chopped fresh or  frozen rhubarb 


1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter (or margarine)
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts

How to Make Rhubarb Cherry Crisp


In a medium size pan, whisk together the sugar and the cornstarch.

Gently stir in the water (or 1 cup of the excess liquid), and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly (with a wooden spatula), to avoid sticking and burning, until mixture thickens and is bubbling.

Gradually add the cherry pie filling and the almond extract. Set aside to cool.

In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, brown sugar and the salt.

Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Gently press 2 cups of the crumb mixture into the bottom of a greased, 9" x 13" baking dish.

Spread the fresh or thawed rhubarb over the crust.

Spread the cooled cherry mixture over the rhubarb.

Stir the chopped nuts into the remaining crumb mixture, and sprinkle over top of the rhubarb and cherry filling. Pat down lightly. 

Bake at 350° F in the center of the oven, for about 35 - 40 minutes, or until the top is golden.

Serve warm or cooled with ice cream or whipped topping.
