Fabulous! Not overly sweet (which is how we like it). Instead of allspice, I added 1/4 t nutmeg and 1/4 t cloves. I also added 1 t vanilla to the crisp ingredients and additional oats. Perfect ...

We love rhubarb crisp and this was a good recipe for us. I reduced the sugar to 2 tbsps in the fruit filling, not 1/2 cup, omitted the water and used 2 tbsps flour not 1 tbsp as I used frozen rh...

Nikki: Fantastic recipe! Easy to make and tastes great. I made this as a desert for a barbecue we had. What makes it unique is the bottom crust. Right out of the oven with some vanilla ice cre...

This was very sweet with a nice tartness from the rhubarb. I was looking for a recipe to use rhubarb in, when I came across this recipe. I've never had rhubarb before and wasn't sure that I woul...

This was delicious. I doubled the recipe to make it in a 9x13 and used 7 cups of rhubarb. Make sure you grease the pan well!
