Reviews for Makeover Strawberry Rhubarb Crunch
"I liked that it had less sugar than most recipes of this kind."
"It needs no water. The fruits have enough moisture in them"
"There is no water listed in the ingredients."
"Oh yeah - I didn't have any splenda sugar, but would try that way. Any way that we can use rhubarb, I will Love that stuff."
"Made this recipe as stated, and it was wonderful! I doubled the ingredients and baked it in a 9x13 baking dish."
"My family LOVES this recipe"
"This dish was SO easy TO MAKE!! and it was delicious :) I would highly recommended it to all!"
"Great taste, also used regular brown sugar & crumble was dry, I will try a larger pan next time"
"I made this for my husband and for a friend of mine. They both gave it a thumbs up. My hubby thought it a touch sweet but liked it. I didn't have the brown sugar blend either so used regular and it was fine. My crunch topping stayed dry. I know my butter was cut in appropriately. I think I might try a smidge more butter next time to try and crunch it up. We will make this again, and I am going to try it with a blueberry/strawberry mix next time."
"Very good! Not too sweet."
"We loved this desert. But the next time I made it I used peaches instead of strawberries and rhubarb it was just as good."
"If you like other berries, try Slow Berry Cobbler. Made in crock pot. YUM!!"
"This was absoluley wonderful! I wouldn't change a thing in this recipe."
"We loved it and I used just brown sugar( no blend) and I thought it was delicious."
"I've made this twice already. I used Splenda instead of sugar since my husband is diabetic. We both agree it's very, very good. I always like recipes to use rhubarb since we have our own in the backyard!!!!!"
"Turned out great except for one thing, I forgot to add the vanilla. Will make this crunch again."
"Would make with less sugar, although the folks I served it to loved it. It turned out very nice. Especially w/ice cream! ;-)"
"My husbands favorite combination is strawberry and rhubarb so this recipe caught my eye. I made it just as directed and it came out great!"
"Over all we REALLY liked it. Had no idea what brown sugar blend was, but stumbled across it in the store. Next time I will use more rhubarb and less strawberries. I think the topping could be improved."
"Didn't anyone else's turn out soupy like mine? Should I have used more cornstarch and why did the crunch fall into the filling? Help me!"
"this is very good and yes I would make it again.....also tried using different fruits and still very good"
"I don't care for the strawberries, could I use just rhubarb and how much. It sounds good and I do love rhubarb. Thank you."
"I made this exactly as indicated. When I baked it, the strawberry-rhubarb mixture never set so it was like a pudding only softer and the crunch did not stay on top, it cooked into the mixture. The flavor was great but there definitely wasn't any crunch!"
"Brown sugar blend is a Splenda product."
"What is brown sugar blend?"
"I'm very lucky to have a huge amount of rhubarb and not even a half mile from me, a farm that has acres of strawberries where I can pick them as I need them! The recipe is a great favorite of my family- make it often in the Spring! very refreshing"
"Strawberry rhubarb crunch is a recipe my family simply loves. It's so easy to make and so delicious, we make it whenever we have all the ingredients. It's a keeper and going in my recipe box."
"Very easy to make. I used Splenda instead of regular sugar. It turned out great! Nice summer treat."
