Rose's Rhubarb Pie

No recipe image available.Rhubarb's tart flavor is balanced by the honeyed sweetness of the streusel topping in this rustic dessert. It's a great addition to a picnic table or a finish to a simple roast chicken dinner—and Rose, wherever you are—keep baking those pies.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar - divided use
1 cup all-purpose flour - divided use
