Whenever I hear the word rhubarb, I always think of my grandma. She made pies every year no matter what. She would only buy rhubarb from a local gardener on her road, he still remembers her fondly. That man is still going strong and I buy it from him now too. It is a family tradition now, every summer I MUST make 2 rhubarb pies. If not, something is seriously wrong! This recipe is the closest to how Grandma's used to taste that I can possibly get it. I have to say, it's really good. Hope you like it!
Total Time: About 30 minutes prep
Yield: 1 pie
Source: Modified from a recipe in an old dutch cookbook
Note: You should double the recipe and make 2 of these yummy pies, because way back in 1980 when I first tasted this pie (the first time I met my then boyfriends parents) I thought I disliked all pie. But after I tried one slice of this, I couldn't stop myself and kept coming back for more of his mom's wonderful rhubarb cream pie. (I think I had 4 pieces the night we arrived!) Mt. St. Helens blew the next day, turning the whole sky pitch-black (which turned the street lights on at noon!) We had a hard time driving back through all the ash to our jobs at Boeing, but I had her tasty recipe in my pocket! She's since passed on to the happy bakery in the sky, but her recipe lives on, and it's the only pie I'll make. I love it, love it, LOVE IT!
