Directions

  1. Combine flour and sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Press into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool.
  2. In a bowl, beat egg yolks; add the sugar, flour and salt. Stir in the rhubarb, cream and orange peel; pour over crust. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites, vanilla and salt on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until stiff peaks form. Immediately spread over hot filling, sealing edges; sprinkle with nuts. Bake 12-15 minutes longer or until lightly browned. Cool for at least 1 hour before serving. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 12 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
