What You'll Need

  • 1 pound rhubarb (cut into pieces, about 6 medium stalks)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup sugar (divided)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons butter (cut into small pieces)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (ground)
  • For the Biscuit Topping:
  • 1 1/2 cups biscuit mix
  • 1 heaping tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 1/2 cup milk

How to Make It

Preheat the oven to 400 F.

Combine rhubarb in a medium saucepan with 1 tablespoon water and 3/4 cup sugar. Heat until juice begins to bubble around the edge. Mix together the 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and remaining 1/4 cup sugar; stir in a small amount of hot rhubarb juice to make a paste. Stir cornstarch paste mixture into the hot mixture; boil for 1 minute.

Pour rhubarb mixture into a buttered 8-inch round baking dish.

Dot with 1 1/2 teaspoons butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon.

Combine biscuit mix and 1 tablespoon sugar. Add 3 tablespoons melted butter and 1/2 cup of milk; mix with a fork just until moistened.

Drop by spoonfuls over the hot fruit mixture. Sprinkle with additional granulated sugar for a little extra sparkle.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
