My husband really liked this

My husband really liked this recipe - while I found it too sweet. I will use half the sugar in the filling next time, and will make half again the amount of crust to make it thicker. (the whipping cream did help to cut the sweetness).

Sounds like too much water -

Sounds like too much water - Rhubarb has lots of its own - even with th 2 T cornstarch to thicken. Anyone tried this recipe?
