Rhubarb is defined as 'the nectar of the gods,' well at least for our family. Long winters are tamed by beautiful springs, and there's no better or more welcome gift from Mother Nature than rhubarb. This is a family favorite and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Made it as shown except used old fashioned oats (preferred). Perfect! I grew up with a smaller pan but liked the 9 X 13 which made it thinner. Next time I may try it at 375 because I like a crispier crunchier topping. Read More

The extra flour on the rhubarb ended up at the bottom. The topping became more of a very thick batter and did not add that crunchy top that a crisp should have. I will not make it again. Read More

Very nice dessert. Perfect blend of sweet and the sour Rhubarb. If I was to make this again I would add a tbsp or so of water to the rhubarb before adding the topping just to make it a little juicier. Personally I prefer a topper that has rolled oats in it but having said that this was a nice change. Read More

This is so good! Just like my grandma used to make. The only thing I would do differently is cut back the white sugar just a bit because I had a lot that sunk to the bottom and hardened. Read More

Easy and great. Sweet enough with half the sugar it asks for in the rhubarb. I mixed in a bit of rolled oats in the topping. Read More
