Rhubarb-Pineapple Crisp

We grow our own rhubarb, and I enjoy using it in new recipes. When I first tried this fruity crisp years ago, I thought the tangy pineapple would be too much. I was pleasantly surprised! —Judy Schut, Grand Rapids, MI

    Quick and easy! I used the sugar called for and it was plenty sweet. I think you could do with less sugar and will try it next time.

    A good, easy recipe. Needs more rhubarb, especially if using frozen.

    Good recipe, but, I used a 20-oz. can of sweetened crushed pineapple and the same amount of sugar, and it was still too sour. Next time I'll use more sugar.

    Wow! What a simple preparation for a dessert that's full of flavor. Also easy to make Gluten free as well. I added 1/4 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger to the crumble mix for a bit of zest and it got rave reviews! Definitely keeping this one for my rhubarb collection!

    Delicious crisp, it was a little bit tart,I put a 1/2 cup of sugar instead of a 1/4 as the recipe called for. Will definitely make again.

    What a great way (besides using strawberries) to use rhubarb. Great dessert!

    We are big rhubard fans, so I was excited to try this recipe.I have never paired pineapple with rhubarb, but I thought the flavors went well together. Both my husband and I loved this dessert and I will definately make it again.

    Easy to make, this very lightly tart dessert is perfect for a summer dessert. I think the only change I'll make is to occasionally use strawberries. This recipe is what my husband refers to as a "keeper."
