This was my first time cooking with rhubarb and it was great. I found that bottom crust to be very thick so next time I will put it in a larger pan and maybe double the filling. The combination of orange and rhubarb is excellent!

This is an excellent recipe. I had it in 1994 and made it frequently. But I had lost it. Thank you so much for posting it. These are very yummy!
