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.
