Rhubarb is probably one of the hardiest plants, especially in northern states like mine. It has a tart taste to it, which we really enjoy in our family. Every time I've served this torte to someone who's never had it before, I wind up writing out the recipe for them - and it's my pleasure to share it!

"This is very close to my mom's recipe. It's my favorite thing to do with rhubarb."

"Great recipe. I would probably double the crust, only because I like a thicker crust."

"Delicious! I added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon to the egg mixture. Try it... the added flavor is wonderful. I also served it with ice cream."
