Vintage Recipe: Rhubarb Custard Pie

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 

Today's vintage recipe is Rhubarb Custard Pie. The recipe was handwritten in ink on an index card that had been darkened with time. It was found in an old small red metal recipe box worn with age. The recipe card is dated “April 44”.

There are no baking directions given for this pie but I suppose you could follow basic instructions for a fruit pie.

The original recipe has been scanned and is transcribed below. It can be printed for use in your own home kitchen. Enjoy!

Please Note: Every effort has been made to transcribe these old recipe cards completely and accurately. Many have faded, are stained, or simply do not include every step or tool used in the process. We have changed the wording in some places and added instruction in others to make the text a bit clearer. We do not test or verify all the information found on these old cards. If you choose use the information found here, please know that you do so at your own risk.
