  2. Place the rhubarb into one of the prepared pie crusts. Beat together the eggs, sugar, cream, vanilla extract, and flour until evenly blended; pour over the rhubarb. Use the remaining pie crust to create a lattice, and place on top of the pie.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and continue baking 45 minutes. Cool completely before serving.

I love that this recipe is not too sweet, yet the cream helps cut the tartness of the rhubarb so it doesn't make you pucker to eat it. I intend to make this again, and fix a few things that happened for me while making this. First, I couldn't decide between deep dish and regular crusts. I've learned this recipe needs deep dish! In the shallow crust, the rhubarb was pretty mounded up (I was hoping it would bake down a little, which it did). There was too much custard- as I poured slowly, it would spill out the sides and at a certain point I gave up and poured the remaining custard into a cupcake tin for a second dessert; this is also an issue that can be fixed with a deep dish pie crust. As the pie baked, even more custard bubbled up and spilled out, so definitely put a pan underneath to catch the drippings, otherwise have fun cleaning your oven. Small issues aside, this was a huge delicious hit at the party I took it to and I would love to make it again.
