A while back I saw a recipe for rhubarb pie over at Scarlett and Melly's blog. It looked absolutely fabulous so I pinned it to make at some other point.
More recently I won an award from Sun's Sparks of Life
Trish's Mom's Rhubarb Pie, cause Trish is from another awesome blog I read - can't you just feel the Sisterhood of the bloggers oozing through this post :)
Now it has been eons since I made an actual pie. Years of food restrictions and a complete hatred of making pie crust left me pieless. However it did not leave me with out a premade pie crust (There usually sweet potato pies made at Thanksgiving by my husband - and my husband won't make crust either) I'm currently in the mode of using up food items in the house, the little bits of this and that, so the fact that I had and got to use the extra pie crust was a bonus.
Problem: I only had one crust and the recipe called for two. Solution: we both REALLY love crumble, so I made crumble instead.
Problem: recipe didn't state if I should prebake crust. so I didn't
Problem: recipe didn't state how big the pieces of rhubarb should be, so I cut them into about one inch pieces which is standard in my family recipe of Strawberry Rhubarb pie.
Problem: I really don't think I had enough rhubarb, so I just used what I had

Sorry, I didn't take a photo of the piece I ate. and trust me, at this point you don't want to see it! :) It was really quite yummy. Although I'm not 100% sure the rhubarb was fully cooked.
I am so making this again. but I'm going to figure out exactly how much rhubarb I'm using, and I'm cutting it into much smaller pieces.. and I will probably only use a cup of sugar..
