Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike. -John Muir

Rhubarb Pie With Brown Sugar Crumble

I have never tried rhubarb before.  I know, how awful!  I made this recipe to try it out.  It tastes somewhere between applesauce and strawberries.  The verdict: Yum!

What you need:
rhubarb compote
1 lb rhubarb (sliced)
1 cup sugar
3 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup light brown sugar (packed)
2 1/2 tbsp all purpose flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp cold butter
3 cups crushed grahm crackers
1/3 cup melted butter
3 tbsp sugar

For the rhubarb:  Place all the ingredients into a medium sized pot and cook on low heat until the rhubarb is soft.  Set aside when done.
For the crust: combine ingredients and press into pie dish.  Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
For the topping: Place all the ingredients into a bowl and cut butter into sugar until well combined.

Assemble and Bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes or until the brown sugar topping is crispy.
