This is a twist on the usual Rhubarb pie but does not have the tangy bite. It is more like a custard type pie. Delicious. The pie crust recipe is my mothers recipe and it makes 5 single crusts. I usually double this and freeze dough balls in ziplock bags- two per bag to pull out, let thaw to room temperature and then roll out and use.

How to Make French Vanilla Rhubarb Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Pie Crust:
