This has a bottom and top crust with filling the fruit filling in between, it's really a great dessert! Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.

The smell alone is worth 5 stars. So yummy and full of falls goodness. Although it's only August:-) Used frozen rhubarb that was picked a few months ago and it worked fine. And, used one large Gala apple that gave me two cups. I love the addition of the sugar/water thickening that is spread over the fruit. It really adds to the texture of the crisp. This is a great fall/winter recipe that is sure to please.
