Once you try this pie it will spoil you for other rhubarb pie recipes. This recipe is from the old Farm Journal pie book from the sixties and is a family favorite. That book had several wonderful recipes. Unfortunately the book was poorly made and disintegrated all too soon. We were thrilled to learn that it had been re-issued but discovered to our dismay that that all of our favorite recipes were gone! We made do by photo copying the remains of the old book and now you get to share in the bounty. By the way NEVER skip the drip pan! This pie will always overflow and it makes a nasty smelly mess on the bottom of the oven if you don't have something to catch it.
