Mother's Rhubarb Cream Pie

Strawberry Rhubarb pie and sauce...Yum!

With Rhubarb being in season and thanks to a kind new friend who blessed us with as much as we wanted, Faith just couldn't pass up the opportunity to make a pie! Even though these pictures are of a plain Strawberry Rhubarb pie, below is another recipe that we have also tried with delicious success!

~From the cookbook of Grandma Sauve~

Mix together

1 1/2 cups sugar

3 Tbs flour

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 Tbs butter

2 eggs, well beaten (add to above and blend smooth)

3 cups Rhubarb, chopped

Place Rhubarb in bottom crust, pour filling over. Top with pastry, decorate with pretty cutouts.

Bake @ 450 degrees for 10 min. then 350 degrees for 30 min.
