Made it again, in a 9x13 doubling everything and adding two more cups of rhubarb (8 total) and leaving out the allspice this time. turned out great!

Nikki: Fantastic recipe! Easy to make and tastes great. I made this as a desert for a barbecue we had. What makes it unique is the bottom crust. Right out of the oven with some vanilla ice cre...

This was very sweet with a nice tartness from the rhubarb. I was looking for a recipe to use rhubarb in, when I came across this recipe. I've never had rhubarb before and wasn't sure that I woul...

This was delicious. I doubled the recipe to make it in a 9x13 and used 7 cups of rhubarb. Make sure you grease the pan well!
