This is one of the best rhubarb pies I have made. I did not make the meringue, not a fan. I just added the whole eggs to the recipe, and a little less cream, but I used heavy cream. Believe it or not, it was hard finding a rhubarb custard pie recipe that actually had cream and eggs, go figure. Not sure what the diff is between cream and custard when it comes to pie, but in my humble opinion, this is one of the best I have tried. Thanks for sharing.

<P>I'm a Mom of three boys: 19, 16, 13 (Josh, Jake and Jonah) and a 1 yr old golden retriever-Jethro. I work full-time as a Medicare compliance analyst for a non-profit health insurer. I love to cook - although I don't always have enough time to do as I'd like to do. I don't especially care to do the clean up though- but who does?? Food in general brings people together and makes people feel at ease. My boys love to help out in the kitchen-especially if I'm baking bread or baking sweet treats for them. If anyone were to ask them what I put in a recipe - first two ingredients they'd list would be olive oil and garlic -- (well not for the sweet stuff..at least)! I'm constantly browsing to see how I can alter/influence my family's eating - as well as trying to get it on the table quickly! My boys are all hockey players - so I spend a lot of time at the ice arena. When I have time of my own..I try to get on the golf course or read cookbooks.</P>
