Rhubarb Crisp

Yum-o. I have only had rhubarb a few times, and two of those times have been in the past 2 weeks! This recipe is so super good! Rhubarb can be a little tart on it’s own, so I threw in some strawberry jello to sweeten it up a bit...(and some sugar-sugar-SUGAR!). I topped it with my delicious double-layer is 2 times the crisp layer. So, if you aren’t a big fan of the crisp top, you might want to half the recipe below in order to cut down on the topping! Enjoy!
