Delicious! I gave this one five stars because it was soooo easy and soooo good. Just a note though--when cooking the sause, it did not thicken in the pot, however, it did thicken while baking.

I was looking, last minute, for a goor rhubarb crunch recipe. My first experience with rhubarb was a crunch that my mother-in-law made, and I loved it! This one is almost EXACTLY like that one, I was so happy! It also went like lightening at my dinner party. Everyone loved it. 2 thumbs up and thanks for sharing!! P.S., it's GREAT with vanilla ice cream.

Oh my goodness!!!! This is soooo gooood. Most crisps don't have enough stuff and some crumbles can be soggy. This recipe has all the good stuff from both dishes and a caramel taste to boot! I halfed the recipe and now I have to make a full batch; half is barely going to make it 24hs. 5 stars for this one and a bonus jelly bean from me. JellyBean
