      Meanwhile, in a food processor or medium bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Pulse or mix to combine. Add the butter and pulse or use two knives to cut the butter into the flour mixture. The mixture should resemble very coarse crumbs with pea-sized bits of butter.

      Transfer the rhubarb mixture to a 9-inch pie plate or 10-ince gratin dish and sprinkle the brown sugar topping over it. Bake until topping is golden brown, about 25 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream.
