~ Kitchen Simplicity

4 c. chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
1 c. sugar
2 T. cornstarch
1 c. water
1 t. vanilla
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1 t. cinnamon
pinch salt
5 T. melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place rhubarb in an 8x8-inch pan. 

Place sugar, cornstarch, and water in small pan; stir to mix.  Heat mixture to boiling, then remove from heat and add vanilla.  Pour over rhubarb.

In a small bowl, mix flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and walnuts.  Add butter and stir until crumbly.  Sprinkle over rhubarb filling.  Bake 45 minutes or until bubbly.

Notes:  This was the first thing we ever made with rhubarb and it was a hit!  I use unmelted butter and cut it into the flour mixture.  We use an 8x8-inch pan, but you can also divide the recipe into six ramekins.
