Well the title of this post pretty much sums it up. I had, you guessed it, pie for dinner!
I guess it’s technically a tart, but who’s telling…
Confession: I’ve felt funky all day. SO tired for no reason, (I went to bed at 10:00 last night and slept well??) with a raging headache to boot.
I came home wanting comfort food, but alas, the ingredients for Grandma’s Chicken Noodle Soup eluded me. I settled for the next best thing…the homemade Rhubarb Tart that just happened to be sitting on my countertop!
This 4 ingredient tart is the same one I had at my parent’s house earlier this week. It was so dreamy and delish, that it’s the only thing I wanted to make with the rhubarb stash my Mom gave me. I whipped this bad boy up last night, before the Idol concert.
2 beaten eggs
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
3 cups chopped rhubarb
1 frozen pie shell
Whisk first three ingredients together until well blended. Add rhubarb and mix until combined. Pour into the pie shell and bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes or until set.
Talk about creamy, luscious and comforting!
The rhubarb is just barely tart, while the sugar, flour and eggs create a sweet, almost custard-like filling.
Because, sometimes you just need pie for dinner. Know what I mean?
In case you were wondering, no, I didn’t eat 1/4 of this pie tart tonight. I had the other slice for an after-idol snack last night. The rest of it IS all mine though. Ben hates rhubarb!
I’m off to go lounge on the couch and perhaps give my peepers a rest before my shows come on?!
What are some of your favorite comfort food dishes?
A big bowl of my Mom’s homemade Macaroni and Cheese comes to mind. Oh yeah – you know the kind. Big, soft, elbow macaroni with that creamy, oozy, cheesy sauce. omg.
