"Quick, easy, and absolutely delicious! The best thing is all the ingredients are ones I always have on hand! So many recipes I can't make until I've made a trip to town. The first time I made it I did just as the recipe says. Very good, but the rhubarb cooks down and it is very thin. The second time I doubled all ingredients except sugar. Turned out just as delicious as the first time but was way thicker. I will be making this recipe whenever I want rhubarb! Very yummy with vanilla ice cream!"

"This has been our family favourite since it was published in Taste of Home 1994."

"I've been making this since it first appeared as a restaurant recipe request. I also think it better suited to a 7 x11 pan than 9 x13. It is good out of the pan but also looks fancy layered with whipped topping in a sundae glass."

"This was delicious! But better suited for an 11x7 baking dish, not a 13x9 one.

"Very simple to make and delicious. But there is no way that this recipe will serve 10-12 people, especially if served in a sundae dish. I would guess that you could get 6-8 servings from recipe."

"I think they first put this in TOH in June/July '94 issue. We had rhubarb growing in the back yard, and tried it and loved it -- a family favorite. Last weekend, my newly married daughter called me on the phone and said "Can you give me that recipe for the rhubarb crisp?" I had to recalculate it for a smaller number, but she said it came out just great!"

"Easy, quick, and delicious! Glad we gave it a shot. We're making our second batch now. Grandma's rhubarb bars (our previous favorite use of rhubarb) takes a big back seat to this recipe."

"Now that it is rhubarb season in Minnesota, I couldn't find my "go to" rhubarb crisp recipe. I found this recipe and it will become the "go to" rhubarb crisp. Excellent!!"
