This recipe is a trusted standby when I am having company and have not planned far enough in advance to make a cheese cake or any other dessert that I want to dazzle them with. Good served warm with ice cream or cold. I, however, prefer to eat it warm.
Grandma Hunt's famous Rhubarb Crisp
(sorry I don't have a picture. You will just have to trust me on it.)
1 cup flour
3/4 cup uncooked oatmeal. I use old fashioned. Always have and cannot guarantee results with any other type.
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup melted butter. I never use margarine.
1 tsp cinnamon
4 cups rhubarb Sometimes I use 1/2 mountain blackberries and 1/2 rhubarb.
1 cup sugar
2 Tbs corn starch
1 cup water
1 tsp vanilla
Cook sugar, corn starch and water until thick. Stir constantly. add vanilla.
Mix dry ingredients and melted butter until crumbly.
Press 1/2 mixture into a greased 9" pan.
Cover with rhubarb then the cooked sauce and top with the rest of the crumbs.
Bake @ 350 degrees for one hour.
Serve with ice cream, whipped cream or plain. Enjoy:)
