Who's for pie?

Before we get to the new project, I thought I'd share a photo of something miraculous that happened yesterday.

Yes! Rhubarb Custard Pie. My mother's recipe. My mother, my grandmother, my aunts.....probably every woman (and quite likely, every man) who took a beautiful, perfect meringue pie from the oven has thought, "This is it. This is the time that the meringue won't fall." And in my experience, they always fall. Yesterday, I took this pie from the oven, expecting the eventual and inevitable deflation, and while it did fall a TINY bit, this is the result! Amazing! I had to get photographic proof. And here it is. (I may never make another meringue pie in my lifetime.)


  1. That looks delicious. Can you mail me a slice?

  2. Since my rhubarb patch is looking so healthy, I must dig out my recipe and make a pie or two. And darn, hubby doesn't like rhibarb so more for me and daughter.
