Darrington Rhubarb Cream Pie

Darrington Rhubarb Cream Pie was the other pie in my battle of the Rhubarb Custard Pies.  It’s a hearty pie with a thick layer of custard on the bottom, a much more generous pie than the 1941 Lutheran Ladies Pie plus it has almond extract in it for an exotic touch. I love almond extract.  It was Coco’s favorite and I enjoyed it a lot, too.  I didn’t quite have enough rhubarb, so I supplemented with a cup of strawberries…
