Intriguingest Pie Recipe du Jour CXCI

Pie is one of the most beautiful words in the English language.  Pregnant with endless tasty opportunities -- be it sweet or savory, gloopy or refined; it can please just about any palate.

Over time, pie has become quintessentially American.  Consequently (and the merits of this notwithstanding), what, then, could be more American than a pie recipe from the White House -- especially (happily for me) a rhubard pie recipe!
