pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups diced rhubarb, 170g – 200g

Add the melted butter and whisked eggs and mix again until you get a thick, slightly crumbly dough.
Butter a 9 – inch pie pan and then press the mixture into the bottom of it, going up the edges slightly.
Use a fork to poke holes all over the crust to prevent it from rising at it bakes.
Bake the crust for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the filling by whisking together the 2 eggs in a large bowl.
Add the heavy cream, sweetener, vanilla extract, coconut flour, xanthan gum, cinnamon and salt. Whisk again until everything is very well combined.
Once your crust is finished baking, pour the diced rhubarb into it and spread it out evenly.
Then pour your filling on top of the rhubarb.
Only pour until you reach the top edge of the pie crust. If you have any extra filling you can save it and bake it on it’s own with diced rhubarb as a mini custard!
Bake the pie on the middle oven rack for roughly 33min. Gently tent the pie with tinfoil part way through if you notice the crust browning too quickly.
Let the pie cool completely at room temperature before attempting to slice. (Sometimes I refrigerate it on a towel to cool it faster then heat slices a little in the microwave before serving). Enjoy your Keto Rhubarb Custard Pie!
