I got this recipe from a girl I worked with in the early 1970's. I'm not sure where the recipe originated, but it's been a summer favorite of mine ever since. Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do!

1 c
light brown sugar, packed
1 c
flour
1/2 c
margarine
1 tsp
cinnamon

4 c
diced rhubarb
1 c

2 Tbsp

1
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9"X9" glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
