Fantastic! I really enjoyed the tart taste of the rhubarb, however mine were not pretty looking they were definitely edible. My rhubarb just didn't look right. But it was still good. And the ginger icing is great and you have to use the oj, the oj gave it a really nice flavor to the whole thing. Thanks for a great one! Made for Fall PAC 2008.

This was so good, it was unbelievable. I couldn't have asked for a better rhubarb recipe.

These are so delicious. Made them for Mothers Day and they were a big hit. After you drizzle icing (use oj as your liquid), you absolutely must sprinkle with 1 T finely chopped crystallized ginger (opt. item in the orig. BHG recipe). YUMMY!!
