Rhubarb Marshmallow Cobbler

We love rhubarb around our place. Which is a good thing because, as you are probably aware, once it starts showing up there is a LOT of it. Like.... sooooo much...
That's okay though. It just means we get to experiment with tons of rhubarb recipes. 
The one we are sharing here, for example, is adapted from a recipe our mom found in a Taste Of Home magazine. It has marshmallows in it, which just seemed weird. Of course, we had to give it a try! We drastically cut the sugar in this recipe. The original called for a cup and a half to be mixed in with the rhubarb. We only added 1 Tbsp. Seriously. That's all it needs. 

Rhubarb Marshmallow Cobbler
(Adapted from Taste Of Home, Simple & Delicious)

Bottom Layer
4 cups rhubarb, diced
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 cup mini marshmallows

1/2 cup butter, room temp
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sugar
1 3/4 cup flour
3 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray a 9 X 9 pan with cooking spray, set aside.
Place diced rhubarb in the prepared pan. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and marshmallows.

Prepare cobbler - In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, vanilla, and sugar until smooth. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. 
Beat the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, alternating additions with the milk. 

Spoon the batter over the rhubarb.

Bake at 350 for approx 50 - 55 minutes, until top is golden brown and it is bubbling. 
Remove from heat and let sit on a wire rack for at least 15 - 20 minutes. 

Serve hot or warm.

The outside pieces are a bit crispier than the inside. 

Of course, the addition of ice cream is a must. 

We found that the with all that lovely cobbler on top the rhubarb did NOT need anywhere near 1 1/2 cups of sugar. The marshmallows add a layer of sweetness without making the cobbler gooey. 

It can be difficult to tell if the cobbler is cooked through - just make sure the top is a dark, golden brown before removing it from the oven, and when tapped it sounds hollow.
