This is the best Rhubarb Custard Pie that I have ever come across. It is a hit even with those that think they don't like rhubarb. This is a good one to start the Spring fruit season with as Rhubarb is the first fruit to come ripe in the Spring.

This looked so yummy I had to try it. It WAS yummy. I was a little cranky in my initial review when I complained about the oil crust but I've since seen techniques which make managing the papers and dough more easily with less rips and tears. I think I can make another oil crust (it is tasty and flaky) and hope the tip of the piece I cut will stay on. The filling is easy and worth making in a different pie crust if the oil crust is too difficult to roll and fit in the pan.

You are right -- the filling is delicious and works perfectly fine. But I used my own tried-and-true pie crust recipe, and I have pie crust guards to keep the crust from getting overdone.

A delicious rhubarb custard pie! The sweet custard and the tart rhubarb are a great combination. I used one and a half cups of sugar to the four cups of rhubarb and it was perfect for our tastes. I grated fresh nutmeg into the pie, oh so good! I used two prepared pie crusts; the recipe sounds interesting, perhaps I will try the crust another time. I baked the pie about 45 minutes, perfect!
