Rockin' Rhubarb Pie

Melanie Campbell


This is a two-crust, custard-type rhubarb pie with a hint of almond. Served warm with vanilla ice cream, and be prepared for ecstasy!

pinch tips: How to Fold Ingredients





15 oz. pkg. pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
4 c
chopped fresh rhubarb
3 Tbsp
all-purpose flour
2 c
white sugar
egg yolks, beaten
1 c
half & half cream
1/2 tsp
almond extract
1 Tbsp
half-and-half cream
1 Tbsp
white sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place one of the pie crusts into the bottom of a 10 inch pie plate or 9 inch deep dish pie plate. Put the rhubarb in the pie shell. In a small bowl, stir together the flour and 2 C. of sugar. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, 1 C. Half & Half and almond extract. Stir in the sugar and flour until well blended.
Pour the sauce over the rhubarb - it may not all fit into the pan, so just discard any remaining mixture. Place the top pie crust over the filling, seal the edges and flute. Brush the top crust with the remaining Half & Half, and sprinkle with remaining sugar. Cut a few small slits in the top crust for ventilation. Place the pie onto a cookie sheet to catch any drips. Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven or until puffed up in the middle and golden brown on the top. A knife should easily pierce the rhubarb. Cool until just warm before serving to allow the custard to set.
Tip: You can use frozen rhubarb, but you will need to increase your cooking time by about 15 minutes. Do not substitute fat-free Half & Half. The flavor is still good, but the consistency is runny.
