    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom of a 13x9 inch baking pan.
    2. 2
      Combine rhubarb, strawberries, and lemon juice in a 2-qt saucepan. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 8 to 12 minutes or until fruit is tender.
    3. 3
      Combine granulated sugar and cornstarch in a small bowl, then mix into the fruit mixture.
    4. 4
      Keep cooking, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil (approximately 1 minute). Continue boiling until thickened (1 minute). Remove from heat and set aside.
    5. 5
      Combine all crust ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Beat on low speed, scraping bowl often, for 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is crumbly.
    6. 6
      Set aside 1 1/2 cups of crumb mixture.

      Press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom of prepared pan. Spread fruit filling over crust, and sprinkle evenly with reserved crumb mixture.
    8. 8
      Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.

      I've never been a huge fan of fruit desserts, but these are really good (I did have EXCELLENT strawberries and rhubarb, though -- crisp rhubarb and sweet and perfectly ripe berries from the farmers' market). I followed the recipe exactly. I lined my baking pan with tin foil, then pan sprayed it, and I was glad I did as the edges get quite sticky. I did add the lemon-based drizzle rather than the milk and felt it added exactly the right little extra. I will use my food processor rather than my hand mixer for the crust next time I make this -- the hand mixer just never quite seemed to get the crust perfectly crumbled for me. I will definitely be making this one again.

      I read some of the reviews below and decided to double the fruit part of this recipe. After I did that I thought oh boy I might have too much fruit for the dough. So I did 1/3 more of the dry ingredients except the brown sugar. It turned out fabulous. I would do this recipe again. thank you for the idea.

      I used frozen rhubarb and Old Fashioned Oats. I was confused by ingredient description because Quick Oats are not Old Fashioned. I should have used Quick Oats but it still turned out fine. Thought there could have been more (double?) filling and it really didn't need the extra sweetness of the drizzle although it was good. I used lemon juice w/powdered sugar.
