Rhubarb Pie

One of my favorite childhood memories is watching my Mother make fresh homemade Rhubarb Pie!

Every spring during my childhood, I would watch my Mom make delicious homemade rhubarb pies. To this day she still has rhubarb growing in her garden, and yes, she made rhubarb pie again this year. This yummy pie  requires only a few ingredients and therefore it’s a perfect springtime dessert.

Stalks of fresh rhubarb from my Mom’s garden.

It all starts with fresh rhubarb. After the stalks have been washed, we cut the rhubarb into bite-size chunks.

Now for the pie crust. You can use either a store-bought pie crust or make your very own from scratch. Probably two of the easiest no-fail pie crust recipes must be our Speedy Homemade Pie Crust recipe and Viola’s Never Fail Pie Crust recipe. Both are simple, yet great recipes. Plus, they also freeze well so you can make a couple of crust, place them in the bottom of a pie plate and freeze them until you are ready to use them. 

*If you would like to make this recipe gluten free you can find several good GF pie crust recipes on my Gluten Free Foods Pinterest board found here

How about making a delicious pie and giving it as a homemade gift? I found a super neat Tumbleweed Pottery Pie Bird Pie Plate. Plus the pie plate comes with a cute little ceramic Pie Bird that peeks out of the center of the pie. How fun is that? Or how about a gorgeous Handmade Ceramic Deep Dish Pie Plate? The recipient will be thrilled!!!

After the pie crust is ready we add an egg mixture to the rhubarb. This mixture helps to thicken and sweeten the pie and adds a “custard-like” texture. The mixture is simply a combination of sugar, flour, and eggs.

Bake the pie at 375 degrees F for approximately one hour; or until the crust is golden brown, the center of the pie is set and the rhubarb is tender when you poke it with a fork.

This pie is delicious all by itself, however, feel free to add a dollop of whipped topping or a generous scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on the side! 

Rhubarb is delicious in many recipes. Another family favorite recipe that we make every year is Homemade Rhubarb Strawberry Pineapple Jam. This stuff is so good that every year my kids fight over who gets the last jar!
