Rhubarb Custard Pie

 

Sweet strawberries, tart rhubarb, and creamy custard pair perfectly in this delicious pie! When is it done? Custard pies should be removed from the oven before the center is completely set. The center will jiggle slightly when dish is gently shaken. Filling will continue to “cook” after it’s removed and center will firm up quickly.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust (see footnote for recipe link)
  • 3 cups rhubarb, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, quartered
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon butter, diced
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry jam
  • 1/4 teaspoon water

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 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.
  5. Mix strawberry 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.
