I've never eaten rhubarb, a kindly old man gave me about 2lbs of the stuff. I hit my favorite recipe site and found this super easy recipe. I did make a few adjustments: I decreased sugar to 3/4 cup, it was still quite sweet, but just right. I added 1 tsp dried orange peel. The pie shell was filled to the rim, I had to bake additional 25 minutes after foil removed for total of 45 min for final baking. This pie had a custard-cheese cakey taste and texture. My husband loved it and I will make again when my friend gives me more rhubarb! Thanks NurseDi for an effortless pie recipe.
