This recipe is an adaptation of one found on the appropriately named food.com. By making changes that several contributors suggested the desert has a satisfying balance of sweet and tart. These changes call for less sugar and more filling, making this version a win-win! The original recipe can be found here.


Ingredients

6 cups rhubarb, cut into 3/4" pieces

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 cup flour

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup melted butter

1 the filling

Combine rhubarb, sugar, flour and cinnamon and put into 8" x 8" x 2" glass baking dish. For this particular batch, I used 6 circular corningware dishes to create personal desserts.

2 Top it off

Combine flour, brown sugar, rolled oats and melted butter. Sprinkle streusel over rhubarb mixture.

PROTIP

Accident prone? Was your high school nickname 'butterfingers'? Consider placing the corningware on top of a cookie sheet. This not only aids in rotating and removing the containers from the oven, but it serves as a safety net incase the filling bubbles over!

3 Things are heating up

Bake at 375 for 35 minutes; Let cool

By placing the filling in smaller containers, I find it easier to not only serve the desert once its finished, but to keep track of portion size as well!
