I’ve never been much of a pie-eater. I always thought pies were pretty but difficult to make.

All that changed a few years ago while visiting my grandma. I was going through all her recipes, like I usually do, and came to a Rhubarb Custard Pie with a “pat-in-pan” crust and a crumbly, brown sugar topping.

The “pat-in-pan” crust consisted of flour, sugar, milk and oil. For the filling, grandmas uses rhubarb, eggs, flour and sugar.

When that rhubarb pie came out of the oven and I tasted my first bite, I fell in love. It launched a love of everything rhubarb—rhubarb crisp, rhubarb crumble, rhubarb pie. It was so tart, yet so sweet.
