This recipe comes from Bea who is a very good friend of our family. If you like a rhubarb custard pie you are gonna love this dessert.
Head on out to the rhubarb patch and force your 4 year old granddaughter to pick the stuff. Did I mention that if anyone wants any of this stuff to PLEASE help yourself?
Now demand that she play in the water and wash all that rhubarb.
Dice it into small pieces. I think I had about 12 cups here even though I only need four for this recipe.
The crust on this dessert is so good. I like to combine it in the food processor. Put 2 cups of flour into the processor.
Add one cup of cubed cold butter
And 10 Tablespoons of powdered sugar
Pulse it about a dozen times until you have a fine crumb consistency.
Spray your 9 x 13 pan with some of this stuff.
Pat the crust into the pan and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
Singing a song helps the patting process.
Crack 4 eggs into a large bowl and then pick out all the shells
Whisk it up real good.
Add 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 1/2 cup flour and a teaspoon of salt
And of course a teaspoon of vanilla. This girl has been cooking with me too long.
She is learning the technique of no measuring.
Whisk this until it is well mixed
Dump in your four cups of rhubarb
Pour over the baked crust and bake for 40 minutes at 350 until the filling is set. You may need to bake a little longer, depending on your oven. Just test it by jiggling the pan to see if the filling moves. If it does bake a little more.
Top with a dollop of cream and enjoy!

Then the one who looked like a man touched me again and I felt my strength returning. “Don’t be afraid” he said, “for you are deeply loved by God. Be at peace; take heart and be strong!” Daniel 11:18
