Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! I've looked for years for one like this given to me by a farmer's wife - it was the best! Her's used pie crust topped with lattice. The meringue-like filling would bubble up and crisp. The filling was a wonderful combination of the sweet/sour goodness that rhubarb has... Your recipe is the closest yet, and I'm truly thankful for it! Thanks!

This was okay. The crust had great flavor, but really crumbled when I tried to get it out of the pan. The custard didn't fluff up at all and just carmelized on top of the crust. Good flavor, but I think it needs improvements. Thank you.

Such a simple recipe w/a wonderful outcome! I got the 1st batch of my abundant summer-long rhubarb supply Fri nite from my friend *Magga* & her garden, so I made your recipe Sat in a 10-in rd baking dish. I used an extra cup of rhubarb as you suggested & added 1 tsp of vanilla to the custard (my choice). I esp like the sugar cookie bottom crust & the way the custard bakes to create a crunchy pie-like frame of the dish. What a treat WIC! I am so glad I found it right at the start of summer. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. Yum! :-)
