rhubarb crisp {my favorite summer dessert}

i am not such a fan of the heat and sun of summer; this is evident by my lack of a tan and my instant flush when the temperature hits anything past 80°.  i do, however, LOVE rhubarb which only comes around in the summer.  so come June…we whip up strawberry rhubarb jam…which is yummy on fresh baked bread, and i just tried some rhubarb bread which is a new favorite.  we also make rhubarb upside-down cake (with a yellow cake mix…DElishOUS!) and my favorite Rhubarb Crisp.

this recipe is actually for apples but we have altered it a tad to work with rhubarb and it is scrumptious.
