I made this pie to take to a church picnic. The kudoes I got....wow! One man said he had eaten rhubarb pie all his life and this recipe far surpassed any he had ever eaten and would I please share the recipe with his wife. I have to admit I thought it was excellent too. However I too mixed the rhubarb with the custard mixture before putting it in the pie crust. Read More

I've had alot of rhubarb pie since childhood and thought to try something different. The vanilla overpowered the rhubarb in my opinion. The texture was great....i would omit vanilla next time. Read More

Beautiful and delicious! When I cut up my rhubarb I only had 2 cups so I threw in some raspberries I had in the freezer. I tossed it all w/ the custard mixture before pouring into the crust. I used a shortening crust made a lattice top sprinkled w/ sugar. The custard really cuts the tart sweetness of the fruit. I will definitely use this recipe again. Read More

So good. I made a crumb topping for the top pie crust (mixed melted butter brown sugar and flour to make crumbs) instead of making a double pastry crust. I like the contrast of the crumbs and custard. This is delicious. If you wanted you could probably add an extra half a cup of chopped rhubarb for more of that tangy flavor or maybe reduce the sugar a bit. Read More

Easy recipe - just like Grandma's. I mixed the rhubarb and custard together before putting in the pan - don't know if that makes any difference. But great simple and delicious! Read More

This was a very easy to make recipe and was very delicious. My kids loved the recipe the custard is not to sweet and offsets the rhubarb bite. Read More
