This is a wonderful springtime treat! I took the advice of a few others and pre-baked the crust 12 minutes to help it set up. I added about 6 strawberries to the fruit mix for added color and flavor. I baked it all for an additional 50 minutes. I'm not a big rhubarb fan, but I LOVE this!

I made this for a 9 X 13 pan by multiplying the ingredients by 1.5. This is a great recipe and I will definitely make it again.

I use this exact recipe, also making the sauce with 1 C. white sugar. Actually got the recipe from dear Edna Staeblers cookbook "Food That Really Shmecks". She's still going strong at 90+ years old and her cookbooks are like dear friends to me. You can use any combo of fruits. Last time I combined rhubarb and sour cherries. Frozen strawberries work well too. Highly recommended.
