“Chef John of Allrecipes says this is “One of the most delicious and easiest pie recipes I know.”  I attest to that fact!  It is SO easy and SO good!  You can vary the fruit too, just keep it to 4 cups.  Also pictured is a version I made of apples, peaches, strawberries and rhubarb.  You can try any fresh fruit or berries.  The custard with the fruit works perfectly the same.   Enjoy!”

INGREDIENTS:

1   9-inch unbaked pie crust

3 cups rhubarb, sliced ¼ inch thick

1 cup fresh strawberries, quartered

3 large eggs

1 ½ cups white sugar

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg ( I used ground nutmeg)

1 tablespoon butter, diced

2 tablespoons strawberry jam ( I used apple jam)

¼ teaspoon water

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees. Place rolled-out pie crust in a 9-inch pie plate and set on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Combine rhubarb and strawberries in a bowl; transfer to the pie crust, distributing evenly.
  3. Whisk eggs, sugar, milk, flour, and nutmeg together in a medium bowl. Slowly pour filling over rhubarb mixture until it just reaches the top edge of the crust.  Scatter diced butter evenly over the top of the filling.  Lightly tap and shake the baking sheet to remove any air bubbles. 
  4. Transfer pie to the preheated oven and bake, turning halfway through, until rhubarb is tender and custard is set, about 1 hour. (At the halfway mark, I added a pie shield to protect the edges of the crust.)

Mix jam and water in a small bowl; heat in the microwave until warm, about 15 seconds.  Glaze the top of the pie with the jam mixture and let cool.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.
