Cream Cheese Rhubarb Pie

Whenever my mom and I have a "rhubarb attack", we make this pie! Although we haven't farmed much of late, my husband and I call the old family homestead home. Our grown son's the fifth generation to live here.

    This was delicious! Everyone loved it. I was told it was "too die for" and "something you'd get at a nice restaurant". It was very easy to make. It did take about 6 minutes for the sauce to thicken, but that was the only time alteration I had to make. I will definitely be making this again!

    Be sure to use a deep dish pie shell for this recipe.
