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. -Rachael Vandendool, Barry's Bay, Ontario

"Delicious! Our neighbor had a bumper crop of rhubarb this year so had to try this. I subbed 1# of sliced strawberries in place of the mandarin oranges and it was wonderful."

"Thank you so much! Looks delicious and I can't believe I have not seen this recipe sooner. Sounds good with rhubarb, mandarin and strawberries...possibly peaches later in the season. I'm jumping way ahead here. Still a chilly April for us. Please forgive me for rating before I try it..."

"I make this yummy dessert several times during rhubarb season. It's always a hit with the rhubarb crowd when I take it to a potluck. I usually double the amount of mandarin oranges. It's also delicious with strawberries or thinly sliced apples instead of the oranges."
