"When my husband and I were first married, we lived in a house with a huge rhubarb patch. I experimented with many recipes and came up with this dessert. It has been a family favorite for many years now."

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Mix together flour, butter, and 2 tablespoons sugar in a medium-sized bowl. Pat crust into a 8-inch square pan, bringing up the sides.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Let cool completely.
  4. While crust is cooling, make a slurry of cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Set aside. Beat separated egg yolks in a small bowl. Pour yolks into a large saucepan; add rhubarb and 1 1/2 cups sugar, adjusting to tartness of rhubarb. Bring to a boil over medium heat, about 5 minutes. Add cornstarch slurry to boiling rhubarb as needed to thicken mixture. Pour into the cooled crust.
  5. Beat egg whites, 3 tablespoons sugar, vanilla extract, and salt together in a separate bowl until stiff peaks form. Spread completely over rhubarb filling.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until top is golden brown, about 10 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • This recipe can easily be doubled and baked in a 9x13-inch pan.
  • If you don't have enough rhubarb, or just want to blend flavors, other fruits can be substituted for some of the rhubarb.
