Great way to use up the huge crop of rhubarb we have. Although, I do think that there is an error in the recipe- the butter should be cold, not softened if you want the top coating to be a crumb...

I loved the soft, non-watery texture inside the pie. I wouldn't change anything except maybe add an extra stalk of rhubarb. Excellent pie!

I used egg beaters for the eggs and it turned out great. Only 9 points on WW with the egg beaters. 4.5 if you only eat a half piece!

This is my favorite pie. When I don't have enough rhubarb I add strawberries to make up the difference.

excellent; custard like bottom with crumb topping 6/1/2008

We made this for the first time last night and it was excellent! We also served it to some friends and they loved it as well. I have never cooked with rhubarb before but it is yummy!
