This has been in my cookbook for ages and I finally got around to making it last week. Like Kree mentioned, it did not work in my food processor at all. I used very cold butter, but rather than blend to pea size clumps (using pulse function), it wasn't blending properly, then suddenly globbed into a messy bag around the blades. I removed it to a bowl and used my pastry blender to cut in the oatmeal, cinnamon and sugar, achieving the desired consistency. Since rhubarb reacts with aluminum (all of my 13 X 9 baking dishes are aluminum), I used my glass 10.5 X 14.75 baking dish. I also used slightly over 2 lbs of frozen rhubarb (fresh is out of season) as I freeze in 6 cup quantities for an old family recipe. It took closer to an hour to bake through no fault of the recipe, only because the rhubarb was frozen rather than fresh. I expected this to last at least 2 or 3 days in my house, but it didn't even make it 24 hours. It was great! Thanks for sharing chia!
Really good rhubarb crisp. My son loved it! Easy to make. I used brown sugar for the sugar in the topping.
An easy, tasty dessert! I served this at a Memorial Day cookout, and it was enjoyed by all. I did have a problem with mixing the ingredients in the food processor, though. They kept clumping up instead of combining, so I ended up just mixing them with my hands. Next time I make this I'll just do that from the start, because it was a lot easier for me! Thanks for a great recipe, Chia!
