For most any rhubarb aficionado, the big debate is whether strawberry-rhubarb pie is better, or if straight-up rhubarb is the way to go. A lattice crust, a delicately spiced filling, and a crunchy sprinkle of coarse sugar make this totally rhubarb pie a total winner.

Bake this crisp right in the skillet you simmer the filling in. It’s a homey, streamlined dessert bound to charm…especially when you serve it with a scoop of melty ice cream on top.

Why should lemon meringue get all the glory when tart rhubarb can match it for pucker power? Orange zest and ground ginger add a little flair to the filling.

Grounds almonds add flavor and structure to the batter for this easy cake. It all comes together in a food processor. If you don’t have an 10-inch oven-proof skillet, use a 9- or 10-inch round cake pan that is at least two inches deep for baking.

Rhubarb Fool

A fool is a dead-easy dessert that’s a friend to those for whom baking is a foe. Quickly cook rhubarb with orange zest and add an optional splash of rose water. Fold it together with sweetened whipped cream and serve as a simply but memorable finale to a summer meal.

People! You may not guess it, but this is the very best rhubarb recipe on our site. I make it ever summer to drink when I want to feel refreshed and slightly fancy. The rosemary adds just enough of an edge to make it interesting. Make the base and mix in mocktails or cocktails as needed.

Here it is! We knew you were going to ask. If people in America have ever had rhubarb in their lives, it’s most likely this beloved pie was the vehicle. Strawberries dovetail seasonally in late spring with the first stalks of rhubarb. How perfect is that?

A crumble is a crisp with what may or may not be a cuter name. I’ll take either, please.

I know what you’re thinking, and no, this is not a Jell-O dessert or salad. But it’s the same idea, only less cloyingly sweet and with real fruit. Gently poach the rhubarb and fruit before adding it to the mold.
