I made this today and it took almost 90 minutes to make and it was still yokey in the middle...Very bad recipes. Oh... and I had used the last of my rhubarb on this.....
The crust was great but the filling was full of water or juice from the rhubarb. I cooked it for 45 minutes and the crust was done. Is there a part of this recipe that is missing? Help!!!!
This was EXCELLENT. I added a crust on top though.
Wow, this was so good! So easy to make and tasted amazing. It is definately something i'll make again!
I'm not sure what went wrong but I followed the directions precisely. The filling was runny & the top was crusty like a meringue. I was so disappointed as this is the first year I was able to use my own rhubarb crop and the rhubarb itself was great.
