Each year, we grow quite a bit of rhubarb...so the main ingredient when I make this pie is homegrown! It's my favorite rhubarb dessert come spring.
We have six grown children, one who's 15 and five grandchildren.
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.

The unique flavor combination in this specialty pie makes it a favorite around my dinner table. The rich, creamy custard-like filling, bits of fresh rhubarb and crunchy pecan topping add a variety of textures my guests rave about.—Terri Rocheleau, Mauckport, Indiana
