Rhubarb Crisp

Every once in a while I just don't feel like making a pie, yep, I just don't. But I didn't want to let fresh rhubarb season pass us by without whipping up a little something and this Rhubarb Crisp was very good! And easy, did I mention easy:@) You can mix in some strawberries or apples or raisins if you'd like, I added an apple. We all really enjoyed this dessert but I will probably add more fruit the next time, at least 1-2 more cups.
Don't hesitate to make this very tasty seasonal treat folks, and if you happen to have some vanilla ice cream in the freezer... 
Well, that would be a beautiful thing too:@)

  4. I personally love a crisp just as well as a pie, Lynn! I still have never tasted rhubarb, but wish I could share a dish of your crisp with you to try it!

  5. I'm still a blushing rhubarb virgin Lynn, I think it's so fascinating to see the differences in foods we eat depending on where we live or how we were brought up! I need to expand my horizons...

  10. Beautiful! I just tried a kicked up version of a crisp this year. And for me, it's almost always crisp and not pie.
