Recipe by katie in the UP

Every Spring I start gathering rhubarb recipes for DH. Our rhubarb isn't ready until the middle of Summer though...but we are expecting tons this year! GOURMET / April 2009

This is one of the most beautiful desserts I've made (as well as one of the most tasty). I went with pie crust because I couldn't find rectangular puff pastry, but I think it still turned out fabulous. I garnished with raspberries and orange zest (if you space out the raspberries right, it will help you cut a pie into more even slices). Thanks for sharing!
