  • 2 c. rhubarb, chopped (approx. 6 medium stalks)
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 c. whole milk (can also use half and half or heavy cream, if you prefer)
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 unbaked (9") pie crust


  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Cut the rhubarb stalks into small bite-sized pieces. Spread it into the bottom of an unbaked pie shell.
    2 c. rhubarb, chopped (approx. 6 medium stalks), 1 unbaked (9") pie crust
  • In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, flour, and salt. Add beaten eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla, and mix well.
    1 c. sugar, 1 1/2 Tbsp. flour, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1 c. whole milk (can also use half and half or heavy cream, if you prefer), 2 large eggs, beaten, 1 Tbsp. butter, melted, 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Pour the custard mixture over the top of the rhubarb. Carefully transfer your pie into the oven. (I move my oven rack to about the center, or just below the center, of the oven.)
  • Bake at 425° for 10 minutes. Then reduce the temperature to 325° and bake for another 40 - 45 minutes.
  • The pie is done when it appears firm around the edges and slightly jiggly in the center.
  • Cool and enjoy at room temperature or chilled. Keep any leftovers refrigerated.


This pie can be made with frozen rhubarb. However, I recommend that you thaw and drain the rhubarb, and then toss it with about a teaspoon or two of flour before adding it to the pie shell.
Keep the pie loosely covered in the refrigerator. It will be good for up to 5 or 6 days, although the crust may begin to get a bit soggy. It's always the best within 2 or 3 days.
