Field editor Doreen Martin from Kitimat, British Columbia shares her creamy rhubarb pie with a twist. "A hint of orange flavor and a nice blend of spices complement the tangy rhubarb," she writes. "I like to serve the pie while it's still warm."

"Excellent alternative to a traditional rhubarb pie. I was looking for a crumb-topped rhubarb pie recipe, and this was the perfect choice. The hint of orange really does complement the rhubarb. I substituted a few drops of orange extract for the grated orange peel, and that worked well. Will definitely make this again"

"This pie tastes okay, but if you want rhubarb pie this isn't it."
