Rhubarb Mandarin Crisp Recipe
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
