Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

FIRST LAYER:
1 cup flour
3/4 cup oatmeal
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
SECOND LAYER:
4 cups diced rhubarb
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

Mix the first layer ingredients until they are crumbly. Some of this mix will be used for topping, so set aside 1/4 cup. In a sauce pan, add the second layer ingredients; bring to a boil. Should be thick. In a 9x9-inch pan that has been greased, put a layer of the crumbly mix. Then add the second layer mixture. Then cover with the reserved 1/4 cup crumbly mixture. Place in preheated 350-degree oven for 60 minutes. Remove from oven and serve warm with ice cream or alone. Makes 10-12 generous servings.
