The BEST Rhubarb Crisp EVER!

Since rhubarb season is upon us, I have decided to share my very, very FAVORITE way to have it.  This is also probably one of my very favorite desserts ever. 

1 1/2 cups regular (not quick cook) oatmeal
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
mix all these together and add 3/4 cup melted butter.  Place one half of the mixture in the bottom of a 9x13 inch backing pan.  Spread out and press in place. 

Cover with:
6 cups of cubed rhubarb.

In a saucepan cook together:
1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups water
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Stir constantly while cooking.  Cook until a thick consistency then poor over the top of the rhubarb.

Spread the other half of the topping mix on top.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.

I strongly recommend having vanilla ice cream on hand when this comes out of the oven :)
