  • 6 eggs, separated

  • 1 cup evaporated milk

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • 8 cups diced rhubarb

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.

  2. Combine butter, 1 1/2 cups flour, and 1 tablespoon sugar in a mixing bowl; beat until combined with an electric mixer. Press mixture into bottom of prepared baking dish.
