Spring is slowly approaching, and show season is soon going to be underway. Everyone will be preparing their best cattle to take to the show ring. Let's all remember we get our dairy products from great cattle that spend their lives making milk. I hope you try this dairy recipe that will help you get into the spring spirit.

Makes one 9-inch pie
1 1/4 cups white sugar
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups chopped fresh rhubarb
1 (9-inch) unbaked pie shell
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, softened
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Beat 1 1/4 cups sugar, sour cream, eggs and 2 tablespoons flour in a large mixing bowl until smooth. Stir in vanilla and salt. Fold in rhubarb. Pour rhubarb mixture into pie shell.
Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Meanwhile, combine 1/3 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut in butter with fork or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
Remove pie from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Sprinkle topping mixture evenly over pie. Return pie to oven and bake until filling is set and crust and topping are golden brown, about 30 minutes.
