CRUSTY RHUBARB PIE .... no roll pastry

Nancy J. Patrykus


"Tis the season" ....all to short.
So enjoy your fresh rhubarb while you can!
I have baked this quite a few times since it was first published in Relish.
It is a spring delight and I look forward to making a couple every, spring, with the rhubarb out of my garden.
It is not to sweet and wonderfully tart.
Fell free to add strawberries , for a change.
I have and it is a delight...
