If you would rather make a "Strawberry Rhubarb Custard Pie", you can easily use this recipe, and substitute 1 1/2 cups of the rhubarb with 1 1/2 cups of sliced strawberries.


If you are using frozen rhubarb for this recipe, thaw it in a sieve, over a bowl, and discard the excess liquid.


1 unbaked 9 or 10" pastry pie crust shell
3 1/2 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb (1/2" to 1" pieces)
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup sour cream


1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup all-purpose flour



Line the bottom of the pasty pie crust shell with the chopped rhubarb.

In a bowl, mix together the sugar, sour cream and the flour until well combined.

Pour the mixture over the rhubarb in the pie shell.


In a small bowl, with a fork, mix the butter and the brown sugar.

Add the flour, a little at a time, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Sprinkle the topping over the pie filling.

Bake at 450° F to 15 minutes, and then reduce the oven temperature to 350° F, and bake for about another 35 - 45 minutes, or until filling starts to bubble.

Serve warm or chilled with ice cream or whipped cream.

Serves 6.
