just for fun

my grandma was an extraordinary cook – she could whip up the best fried chix in the world & her pies were borderline sinful 😉

To honor her, i thought i’d post one of my favorite things she cooked:  rhubarb torte. Pls understand that this recipe doesn’t attempt, in any way, to be healthy so be forewarned that its just plain fattening & totally DELICIOUS!!  That being said, here you go:

preheat oven to 325

crust:  mix everything below into a crumbly state & toast in oven for about 20-30 min

1cup flour, 2 Tbsp sugar, dash salt & 1/2cup butter


filling:  cook over medium heat until thick (about 15-20min)

1.5cups sugar, 3 Tbspn flour, 3 egg yolks beatn, 1/3cup cream or half-and-half, 2.25cup chopped rhubarb


meringue:  whip w electric blender until stiff peaks

3 egg whites, 6 Tspn sugar


Spread filling over crust, top w meringue, brown, cool & serve.  Enjoy!
