An Old Summertime Treat

Yes, I know it's not summertime. However, my mother at long last dug out an old recipe that I loved as a child. Here it is (copy it and keep it in a safe place until summertime ... it will be worth the wait!) ....

Raspberry Rhubarb Dessert

1 lb (3c) rhubarb
1 10 oz pkg froz raspberries -- fresh, even better!
1/2 c sugar
3 T cornstarch
1 1/2 c flour
1 c brown sugar
1 c quick oatmeal
1 t cinnamon
1/2 c melted butter

Thaw and drain fruit and add water to make 1 C Combine sugar and cornstarch blend in liquid and cook and stir until thick and clear. Cover, add fruit and remove from heat. Cool. Mix rest of ingredients and put 2/3 on bottom of 9x9 pan, cover with fruit mixture & sprinkle with remaining crumbs. 325 for 1 hour
