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!


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

Directions Step-By-Step

Pre-heat oven to 425F.
Make pie crust...put in pie plate.
In a bowl add cut up rhubarb, and pears.
In a seperate bowl, add eggs,sugar, flour, vanilla,and whipping cream.
Mix Well.
Add filling mixture to the rhubarb, and pears.
Fold in.
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.
Remove and cool.
Refrigerate till serving time.
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 may agree with me..Nancy 6/22/12

    Sounds delicious and can't wait to make it. I also had rhubarb at our last home in NY but since moving to CT in a senior condo, we cannot have a garden, so I will see if I can find some frozen and make it. Mmmmm
