In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients of crumb mixture together. Add butter to dry ingredients mixing until crumbly. Pat 2/3 of mixture in 9x13 inch baking pan.

After mixture thickens, fold in almond flavoring, rhubarb and pie filling. Spread over crumb base and sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes. Makes 12-15 servings.

4 T. flour, divided
1/4 t. cinnamon
3 c. diced rhubarb, cut in 1/2 inch pieces

2 T. milk
1/2 c. sour cream

Combine remaining sugar and flour, 1/2 c. brown sugar, and salt; add eggs, milk and sour cream, beating until smooth. Pour egg mixture over rhubarb. Bake at 375 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until filling is set. Sprinkle with one tablespoon of brown sugar. Bake five minutes longer. May be server warm or cool.
Note: Cover edges of pie with strips of foil the first 25 minutes of baking time. Remove foil for remaining time.
When sprinkling the brown sugar, I put the sugar in the palm of my hand and take a pinch at a time to sprinkle. Make sense? Go for it!
Skip the butter or syrup you would put on waffles or pancakes and try this delicious topping.
RHUBARB/BLUEBERRY BREAKFAST SAUCE
6 c. finely diced rhubarb
4 c sugar
1-21 oz. can blueberry pie filling
1-3 oz. pkg. raspberry flavored gelatin
In a saucepan, bring rhubarb and sugar to a boil; lower heat and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat; add pie filling and mix well. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in gelatin. Store sauce in jars or freezer containers. Refrigerate or freeze until ready to use. Serve with waffles, pancakes or French toast. Makes seven cups. This sauce makes a nice little gift to give to new friends and old friends, too.
I may have shared a bit of information regarding pie shells. If so, it’s worth repeating. I keep a jar of very fine dry bread crumbs in the fridge. When I make a baked fruit pie I sprinkle about a tablespoon or so of the crumbs into the unbaked shell before adding the filling. This keeps the crust from getting soggy, especially after it’s been cut and there are leftovers.
