Rhubarb Cobbler

My mother made this cobbler for hay balers at lunchtime and for her quilt club. I've shared the recipe with many friends and they say it's now one of their favorites.

    I put 5 cups Rhubarb in it instead of 3 because my husband loves lots of Rhubarb flavor and not too sweet. I also added cinnamon which we think is good with rhubarb. My husband loved it and gave it 5 lstars. It will be a favorite to make now.
