Nancy J.'s notes for this recipe:
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!

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
