Spring Means Rhubarb


1 cup flour
3/4 cup oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 cups diced rhubarb
1/2 pkg. dry strawberry Jell-O

3/4 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water

Preheat oven to 350°F.
To make crust, mix flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter until crumbly. Press 1/2 of the mixture into the bottom of a 9x9 inch pan.

Cover with chopped rhubarb, then sprinkle with dry Jell-O. In a medium saucepan, combine white sugar, cornstarch and water. Cook until thickened and clear. Add vanilla. Pour over rhubarb, pat remaining crumbs on top.
My notes. I used a large pkg of Jello. Also, the only kind of jello I had was raspberry - and that was really good too.

Bake at 350°F for 1 hour.

It was soo very good! And that's coming from someone that doesn't really care for rhubarb. I forgot to get a picture of the whole pan cause we were in a hurry to get to the Lundgren's to eat before the softball game - this was the last pice before it was gone - it was still pretty:-)
