"I doubled the recipe in a 10 x 15 pan (as a previous reviewer suggested) to serve at a party. It was barely touched. The guests said they didn't try it because they weren't sure what it was. Once I told them it was rhubarb then they tried it and liked it. They said the flavor was really good but the appearance wasn't. My brother suggested adding raspberries for taste and color. We have our own raspberry patch so I will definitely try that when they are in season. Maybe I'll put some type of crumble or topping on it. Also we think they were better after refrigerating."

"This was great. I made the crust with honey and coconut oil. The filling I left the same except for honey in place of the sugar. We really enjoyed it. I will be making this again."

"I have made this a few times and am about to make it again for Resurrection Sunday. I use soft white whole wheat and softened coconut oil (a bit less than the butter) in the crust and will reduce the sugar in the topping. We are die hard rhubarb fans and most people up here say, "Wonderful, but use less sugar next time.""
