Yummy Rhubarb recipe

So, my mom moved her rhubarb patch in her garden and in the process took out some for me to plant because she knows I heart rhubarb! The drawback to this is that I am not able to pick any for use this year from my newbies and all but one corner of my mom's is unavailable as well. Well, not to be alarmed, while we were back for a short trip on Saturday, my mom let me pick a bunch from her corner patch and so....
I give you rhubarb crisp/crumble pie! It is oh so yummy too! And just in case you have access to some rhubarb and like trying different recipes I will put my crisp recipe below. Also, check out Angry Chicken's rhubarb hand pies.
Rhubarb Crisp

-4 cups rhubarb (or apples, blueberries, cherries, peaches...)
-2/3 to 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
-1/2 cup flour-1/2 cup oats
-1/3 cup butter softened
-3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
-3/4 tsp ground nutmeg (tastes good without this too)
1. Heat oven to 375, grease bottom and sides of square pan 8x8x2 (I just use a stick of butter and rub it around
2. Put fruit in pan. Mix remaining ingredients and sprinkle over fruit.
3. Bake about 30 minutes or until top is golden brown and fruit is tender.
