The ingredients in this pie are abundant in this area of the country. Our valley is famous for its fields of berries as well as for rhubarb. I'm always delighted to share this favorite recipe of ours with rhubarb and berry lovers!
My niece tasted this pie at a family dinner and urged me to enter it in our hometown pie contest. She said it win the Grand Prize, and she was right! I cook at our local nursing home and everyone enjoys this recipe. —Janice Schmidt, Baxter, Iowa
MY MOTHER always made Rhubarb Custard Pie with the first rhubarb picked. It's one of my earliest memories of a favorite treat, so I feel lucky to have this recipe.
Mother was famous for her gorgeous pies. Unfortunately, she didn't write down most of her recipes...just "a handful of this" and "a dab of that" until it feels "just right" guided her creations.

We have an abundance of "pieplant" in our garden, so I save every rhubarb recipe I come across. I've done a lot of cooking and baking over the 53 years I have been married. My husband especially loves the combination of rhubarb and peaches in this pie.

My goal is to create pies as good as my mother's. I came up with this recipe to use up fruit in my freezer. The first time I made it, my family begged for seconds. If I continue making pies this good, maybe someday our two daughters will be striving to imitate mine!
