Rhubarb Delight

We treat rhubarb like gold at our home. Rhubarb pie is my hubby’s favorite dessert. Since I’m not a real successful pie maker, he makes all the rhubarb pies. They are so good! He always buys lots of fresh rhubarb in the spring, cuts it up and freezes it. This year he went one step further. He bought four rhubarb roots. We planted two at home and two at the trailer. They have just taken off. I know we will have lots of homegrown rhubarb in the years to come.

Several years ago, my friend, Cindy, brought this luscious dessert to our Canada Day celebration. My husband made a beeline for seconds, so I knew that was my cue to get the recipe. I made it again a few nights ago, and we really enjoyed it. Our power had gone out (thankfully AFTER it was cooked) so we sat and ate it with candlelight!

It is a shortbread type bottom, with a rhubarb/custard layer, and then meringue topping. Delicious!!
