Reviews for Rhubarb Crisp
"I made this yesterday. I made a big batch and used both apples and strawberries in it. I quite enjoyed it and the friends with whom I shared it told me it was really tasty. I may make it again next year."
"Super delicious. Definitely a keeper."
"Thank you, ladies, for all the help. Marvelous apple recipe."
"Yummy! I substituted raspberries for the strawberries and it was delicious."
"This is just awesome! I used apples with the rhubarb and regular oats. Followed the recipe as printed. I'm going to try blueberries and walnuts or pecans next time"
"Not too sweet, perfect. Next time I'll add walnuts in the topping!"
"This is the recipe my family has used since Quaker Oats started making oatmeal. Versatile and easy. Depending on the fruit you add, you can use cinnamon, dash of nutmeg, if rhubarb or apples are too tart, a dash of salt. I never melt the butter just use soften butter. You can always add some more oats or flour if too moist for topping. Sometimes I add white sugar with the brown sugar. Also I may put a few pats of butter inside with the fruit, before putting the topping on. Also, depending how the topping turns out, I may put a pat of butter or two broke up on top of the topping. You can just add or subtract on this recipe."
"Am I totally off base or am I reading this recipe wrong. When I followed the topping recipe, I did not get coarse crumbs. I am sure it was because I melted the butter, as the recipe states, so it was just a moist mix. I tried to drop it over the fruit in small batches, but don't know if that will wok. It is in the oven now. Next time I think I will use room temp butter, which makes way more sense."
