Grandma Ethel's Rhubarb Crisp

Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"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."

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.

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 j...
