    This was alright, but boring. Additionally, the rhubarb is incredibly visually unappealing when baked like this.

    I love the biscuit part of this recipe! I've used it for any number of fruit fillings. It's not very sweet, but is rich, dense, and - wonderful for soaking up all the delicious sweet filling juices!

    We had this yesterday as a desert and really enjoyed it. When I make it next time I'll probably use slightly less fruit (3 1/2 cups), but my boyfriend thought it was perfect as it was, and gave it full marks. I used only 3/4 cup of sugar and I did use the cinnamon and it was nice and tart which was perfect in combination with the sweetness of the custard I served it with. Yummy!!
