Spicy Rhubarb Crisp

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

A family favorite, just perfect served with vanill bean or strawberry ice cream. Hope you will enjoy this as much as we do. Grinding your own spices makes for a nicer, more mellow flavor.

This came out scrumptious even with my diabetic changes in sugar usage. I used Splenda in place of the honey in the rhubarb and lessened to honey in the topping to 1/4 cup and used Splenda for the remaining sugar there. Went with the strawberry ice cream option and was that ever a winner. Excellent Kato dear, excellent. :D
