This takes almost 2 bags of rhubarb. It calls for 4 cups, but I just add the little extra in, and it comes out fine. The original recipe called for butter drizzled, but I like to cut it in pats and put it over the top, it adds a nice even crust. One of my families favorites, and my sister in law said she really didn't care for rhubarb, but she liked this, and even request it when we have family gatherings. Enjoy!
