What is it you're trying to make? Sprinkling powdered gelatin over stuff doesn't sound very appetizing.
I agree! That is why I am asking
The recipe says place rhubarb in tin, Sprinkle jello (strawberry) over it.
Mix the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, oatmeal, and butter) and pour over the rhubarb and jello then bake.
It seems odd to sprinkle jello!
