We love rhubarb. Actually who doesn’t love rhubarb? Strawberry rhubarb is my husband’s favorite pie but this year, we’ll be having pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dessert and instead of my strawberry rhubarb pie, a sweet rhubarb casserole. Yummy and served warm with vanilla ice cream and steaming hot coffee, my thanksgiving guests will be asking for seconds.
Over the next week I’ll be sharing some Thanksgiving Day menu ideas because it’s just around the corner and I’m looking for new ideas and sharing what I test out with you! Please be sure to leave your favorite recipes and links in the comment section below, I’ll be sure to pin these and give them a try.
Like I said, this year I’m trying a rhubarb casserole for a new dessert. Of course, we’ll still have pumpkin everything because I’m obsessed with pumpkin and can’t wait to have pumpkin pudding but I think a rhubarb casserole will be a welcome change.
What You Need:
- 3 cups rhubarb, sliced about 1 inch
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 4 tablespoons sugar, divided
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 2 cups of baking mix
- 2 cups whipping cream (Chocolate covered Kate has a great recipe for making your own whipping cream.)
How to Make It:
- Place the rhubarb in a large mixing bowl.
- Add the lemon juice and toss to cover the fruit well.
- Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of sugar on the fruit and toss again making sure all the fruit is covered.
- Add the butter and stir carefully to incorporate.
- Spray a casserole dish on the sides and bottom with a non-stick cooking spray.
- Set the oven temperature to 350 degrees and allow the oven to heat.
- Mix the baking mix as directed on the package for biscuits.
- Place the fruit into the prepared casserole dish.
- Press the dough over the top of the fruit being sure to seal the edges.
- Vent the dough with a fork in 6 places.
- Bake 35 minutes or until the crust is a golden brown.
- Mix the whipping cream and the remaining 1 tbsp. of sugar together until the sugar is dissolved.
- Pour the cream mixture over the casserole before serving.
I’m going to sprinkle mine with a little cinnamon for an extra special touch. If you are not partial to rhubarb other fruits such as peaches, apples or pears could also taste great with this recipe.
Enjoy! What is your favorite Thanksgiving dessert?
