Hawaiian Rhubarb Crisp

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin

A touch of Hawaii, a delicious dessert and very easy to make. We first experienced a similar dish in Waikiki in 1972 and later I developed this recipe and it has been a big favorite.

Another first for me using one of your recipes. Pineapple in a crisp. I've had rhubarb...and of course your strawberry crisp and so knew this wouldn't disappoint. What a unique flavor the pineapple brings to this recipe Bill. I cut the amounts in 1/2 and used an 8x8 inch baking pyrex baking pan. This is as good the next day when all you have to do is heat up a serving in the microwave for 10-15 seconds and add your scoop of vanilla icecream. Thanks!!!!
