Nancy J.'s Story

I went to my rhubarb patch this morning, 6/22/12 ..thinking to make a litle rhubarb syrup..but was happy to see maybe, enough for a pie.
But while cutting up the rhubarb there was only 2 cups.I needed 3. thinking what to do..I remembered Grandma telling me to add a cut up apple to blueberry pie...for the needed flavor inhancement. No apples.But I just happened to have 2 ripe pears. I Cut up and added to the rhubarb.Perfect..I was ready to make a pie.I wanted to use up whipping cream I had in the refrigerator..A few extra ingredients added, and my "EXTRA CREAMY RHUBARB PEAR PIE" was born!

Ingredients

2-1/2 c
cut up -fresh rhubarb
2
eggs--beaten
4 Tbsp
flour
1 tsp
vanilla
1/2-3/4 c
whipping cream
1 c
cut up -fresh pear
3/4 c
sugar
1
unbaked pie shell
sprinkle of cinnamon and a couple dabs of butter.

Directions Step-By-Step

In a seperate bowl, add eggs,sugar, flour, vanilla,and whipping cream.
Mix Well.
4
Add filling mixture to the rhubarb, and pears.
Fold in.
5
Pour into the pie shell.
Sprinkle with cinnamon .
Ad a couple dabs of butter to the top.This makes it's own crunch topping.
Bake 45 minutes.
Cover the crust rim 1/2 way thru..with aluminum.

It needs no whipped cream...
it is baked right in the pie!!
This turned out so creamy,smooth, yummy, sweet, tart flavor with just a touch of cinnamon and vanilla...
A sure winner...
I have made ,many different rhubarb pies in my lifetime.But this recipe will always be number one in my home.
Once you try it..you may agree with me..Nancy 6/22/12

THX MA. We don't have Publix but I'll go on-line. You know how determined I get when I'm on a mission!!!!

The worst case scenario is that I wait until yours grow next spring & you can send it to me [like the onions]. I still have 1 cherished Walla onion left!

I hope I'm not being presumptuous about you helping me out again, if needed in the future?

Hugs, Bobbi

Very nice of you..
If anyone has a Farmers Market...in your town.....

OR if you are lucky...check with your neighbors and friends...
.if they will save some for you...
One never knows!!!!
You can usually buy it very resonable price..
Buy extra and freeze in pie size amounts....HUGS, Nancy....11/9/12

We have Publix grocery stores here that carry frozen rhubarb. I don't remember the brand name right now in fact I think it might just be the store brand.
