Rhubarb Cobbler

This was a favorite recipe of my mom's. She would sometimes add fresh strawberries with the rhubarb when they were in season. My kids loved pulling the rhubarb stalks from her garden to preparethis recipe and would happily munch on a piece if they could dip it in sugar. Some seasons would yield an abundance of rhubarb that was easily chopped up and stored in the freezer for recipes such as this. This cobbler is best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
