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!

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 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.
