"Really good and easy to make. My only issue was my crust was soggy. I may switch to a regular pie crust and even prebake it first. Other than that, this pie is really really good and we gobbled it up soggy crust and all. Thanks for sharing this one."

"I have made this recipe for over 10 years and it always gets rave reviews. I just won a local pie contest with this recipe in the icebox pie division. This is a yummy dessert! It doesn't look exciting until it is cut...then the contrast of the bright red rhubarb & the cream layers is quite enticing."

"My husband is a purist when it comes to rhubarb pies. He wants a two crust rhubarb pie without any other fruit in it. He just loved this dessert. With each piece he ate, he said that it tasted like "more"."

"Made this twice over the Memorial Day weekend. Added a little more than 3 cups of rhubarb and made a rhubarb sauce that I put over the top of the slices -- made a great dessert SUPER."
