Rhubarb Custard Pie

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

Sumner, Washington--the unofficial rhubarb pie capital of the country. This recipe is from a local church cookbook. This pie is different from the usual rhubarb custard pie--the "custard" is more of a translucent jelly that settles on the bottom of the pie.

I have used this recipe for years. I found it in an old Betty Crocker cookbook. Also, I use a 2 crust pie dough. My recipe calls for it to bake at 400 deg. 50-60 min. It is absolutely declicious.
