This is my late mother's recipe. Everyone loves it, even those who say they hate rhubarb. When made as a pie I use a lattice crust top but this is so flavorful I make it as a tart. Many years ago I took this to a picnic at my boss's house. His father was there and ate a piece of my tart. Although, he stated he hated rhubarb he exclaimed after his first bite "I don't know what rhubarb pie you ate, but this is the best d***** apple pie I have ever tasted! —Susan52
