Reviews for Almond Rhubarb Cobbler
"This was quick to put together and used ingredients on hand, so it was perfect when I wanted to use my frozen rhubarb in something. I didn't care for the added crunch of the almonds. They felt out of place in the dessert and will probably leave them out next time."
