For my guests and family, an 8-inch square pan size is not large enough. I'm not an expert baker so won't attempt to "guestimate" the amount of ingredients required for a larger crowd. Would anyone have suggestions for making this recipe to fit a 9x13 inch glass baking dish? Thanks so much in advance!
Hi Sherry, thanks for asking! While we haven't tried doubling this recipe and baking in a 9x13" pan, it should work just fine. If you decide to give it a try, please let us know how it turns out for you! Happy baking!
I made this recipe many times and it is always well received. The key is to brown the butter well, but don't burn it. It adds a wonderful flavor to the crust. I've past this recipe on to many friends and family members.
One of the first fruits to ripen in the spring is rhubarb. Celebrate the season by making your favorite rhubarb pie, cheesecake or bread with the tarty goodness of rhubarb.
