Rhubarb Custard Pie is a decadent dessert perfect for a sweet summer treat. A flaky pie crust is filled with a rich egg custard and rhubarb for a classic recipe you will adore!
This rhubarb custard pie is an old recipe from my Grandma Koch, that my entire family has loved growing up. The sweet and creamy custard balances the tart rhubarb so well. It is absolutely spring and summer dessert perfection. My husband requests this on a regular basis as long as our rhubarb patch is still thriving! Then again, he is happy with just about anything made with rhubarb. These Rhubarb Streusel Muffins are another family classic that we all love. It really is ashamed that rhubarb doesn’t last for a much longer season so we can enjoy all the good rec ipes year round.
My mom made this pie last week while my husband was over at their farm working. She sent him home with a few pieces for us, and by the time he got home one had already disappeared. He handed me the plate of two pieces when he got home so I could have one. After a few minutes, I yelled to the office where he was working, “Both of the pieces of pie might have disappeared!”. He responded with, “They better not have, or you might disappear!” HAHA! Of course I left one for him, but I do enjoy messing with him. 🙂
Only a few days later, he begged me to make him this pie again, he was so in love with it! He argued that rhubarb season will be over before we know it, so I should really make it while I can. I told him, that he should probably mow the lawn for the next few weeks then, because I might accidentally mow over the rhubarb patch, and then rhubarb season really WILL be over! 😉
