Rhubarb Crumble Slice

Rhubarb Crumble Slice

I don’t even know what that means.

I do know that I have been on a bit of a crumble roll lately. There was this Gingersnap Crumble Ice Cream Tart and this Rosy Apple Crumble and now today’s Rhubarb Crumble Slice all in the past 12 days.

Crumbles, whether in cookie form or the stuff of buttery dessert toppings, are so freakin’ delicious and so easy to make.

Rhubarb Crumble Slice is a particularly good crumble recipe. The rhubarb layer has some vanilla added which is the most brilliant thing. I had no idea it was such a match for the tart fruit. Then, of course, there is the buttery crust and the buttery topping that sandwiches the rhubarb filling. Heaven.
