It’s spring time and one of the first things from my garden is rhubarb, just ready for the cutting. My family’s favorite rhubarb dessert is a recipe given to me by my mom.
I have a bad habit of getting my recipes looking “spilled on” when I bake. So I typed all my favorite recipes that were in her hand writing, printed and inserted them into page protecting sheets. This way, I can add more pages to my binder of recipes and also print more for the recipe binders that I gave to each of our children. Now my mom’s recipes will be handed down to the future generations.
2 cups Flour 1 cup Water
½ cup Oatmeal, quick 1 cup Sugar
1 cup Brown Sugar 8 to 10 cups cut Rhubarb
¾ cup Butter, melted 1 cup Strawberries, sliced
3 Tbsp. Cornstarch ¾ cup Walnuts, chopped
Mix together flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, melted butter, & chopped walnuts (optional) for a crust. Put into a 9 x 13 pan. Save ¾ cup for topping. Place cut (1/2 inch pieces) rhubarb & strawberries (small pieces) into pan. In a large glass mixing bowl, stir cornstarch, water, & sugar together. Place in microwave on high until thickened, but not lumpy. Pour mixture over fruit. Add remaining crumbs as a topping.
