I found this recipe in a box of Quaker Oats about 20 years ago. It's quick, and easier to make than pie. It's versatile, too, because you can add strawberries in spring or apples in fall. I usually pop it into the oven shortly before we sit down to eat so it's still warm for dessert! —C.E. Adams, Charlestown, New Hampshire
What a perfect springtime dessert! It's filled with color and fresh fruit flavor the whole family will savor. I sometimes grate about a tablespoonful of fresh orange or lemon zest and add to the crumb mixture for extra flavor. —Sharon Hadinger, Dublin, Ohio
There's no tastier way to get all the good nutrition of oats—including B vitamins and iron—than a serving of this sweet, tasty crunch. It doesn't get soggy like some crunches do.—Frances Poste, Wall, South Dakota
An attractive and unique dessert, this crisp is also a popular breakfast dish at our house, served with a glass of milk rather than topped with ice cream. Since it calls for lots of rhubarb, it's a great use for the bounty you harvest.

We serve this recipe warm in a footed tulip sundae glass, topped with real whipped cream. Our guests really enjoy its rhubarb tang and old-fashioned goodness, and they have made it an often-requested specialty at the restaurant.—Stoney's Restaurant, Mankato, Minnesota
I often make this old-fashioned favorite in spring when fresh rhubarb is plentiful. But it also works well with frozen rhubarb. It's pretty and pink...and has a nice crunch, thanks to the oatmeal crust and topping.
