I made exactly as stated except that I baked the bottom crust for 15 min. While baking I cooked the water, vanilla, sugar, cornstarch until thick (added a couple of min. just to be sure) I then poured this on top of fruit in large bowl & stirred until all fruit was covered. I poured this directly over bottom of crust (didn't cool) put the crumb mixture over top & baked 45 min. or until fruit was soft (check with fork). I served with ice cream & it was a hit. I didn't think it was too sweet but I will decrease the water to 3/4c next time. I didn't serve until it was cooled & it was a bit runny. Definitely a keeper! I think I may try some blueberries along with the rhubarb & strawberries next time.
