Rhubarb Cobbler

Ingredients

  • 4 cups rhubarb {3-4 pieces} chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt divided
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract optional
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a bowl, combine rhubarb, sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, lemon juice, and almond extract if using.
  • Stir and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and baking powder.
  • Stir together. Add shortening and butter, then cut together with a pastry cutter.
  • Beat egg and milk together. Pour into flour mixture and stir with a fork until just combined.
  • Pour rhubarb into a buttered baking dish.
  • Tear off pinches of dough and drop it onto the surface of the fruit, creating a "cobbled" texture.
  • Sprinkle additional sugar over the top.
