I followed the directions exactly and I think next time I will double the rhubarb and skip the almond flavoring. It was way too sweet.
It sounded good, but was "gloppy" & sweet. I think I prefer a fruit crisp that doesn't use all the cornstarch & the already cornstarched pie filling. It definitely needed the ice cream to cut the sweetness. Wish I'd saved my can of cherry pie filling for something else.
This was very delicious, in fact, we liked the combination of cherries/rhubarb instead of strawberry/rhubarb. I didn't make any changes to it at all. Thanks for the great recipe!
I love the taste of almond, but sometimes almond extract can make something taste too sweet to me. So I replaced it with 1/2 tsp vanilla extract; I also added a splash or two of fresh lemon juice, per reviewer Spongebob7's suggestion. Used slivered almonds in the topping and that was a good combo with the cherry pie filling. Broiled topping for about 2 minutes at the end to get it a little more golden and bubbly and try to crisp it up a bit more. Brought it to our neighborhood potluck and people who said they do not like rhubarb commented on really liking it as they gobbled it up! So thanks, Kel!
Everyone loved this and had seconds! It was very tasty and not too sweet. I had hoped the topping would have been a little crisper though. I will replace the almond extract with a teaspoon of lemon juice next time for a fresher summer flavor.
i made this for my rhubarb-loving husband for father's day, and it was a hit with 3 generations of family! the only change i made was out of necessity -- i didn't have any cornstarch, and used 6tbsp flour to replace the 3tbsp cornstarch. it worked great!
From rhubarb lovers in our house, we all give this recipe 5 stars! We were surprised by the cherries, but totally delighted with another way to enjoy our rhubarb!
Very tasty recipe. I added only 3/4 cup sugar to the cherry pie filling and I still thought it was sweet. I have the strawberry rhubarb in my garden which is sweeter than regular rhubarb.
