Homemade pies have a very special place in my heart. Probably because some of my favorite childhood memories were watching my mother make fresh, homemade pies. One of my favorites is mom’s fresh Rhubarb Pie.

Every spring Mom cut stalks of fresh rhubarb to make delicious homemade rhubarb pie. To this day she still has rhubarb growing in her garden.
Naturally, Rhubarb Pie begins with fresh rhubarb. After the stalks have been washed, cut the rhubarb into bite-size chunks.
You can use either a store-bought pie crust or make your own homemade crust. Probably two of the easiest no-fail pie crust recipes are Speedy Homemade Pie Crust recipe and Viola’s Never Fail Pie Crust. Both are simple, yet great recipes. Furthermore, these pie crusts freeze well.
How about making a delicious pie for a yummy, homemade DIY gift? The recipient will be thrilled!!!
The rhubarb is smothered with a combination of sugar, flour, and eggs. This mixture helps thicken and sweeten the pie.
Bake the rhubarb pie in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for approximately one hour; or until the crust is golden brown. The center should be set and the rhubarb should be tender when poked with a fork.
One pie serves 6 to 8 people.
Don’t you just want to grab a fork and dive right in? Fyi… 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. Along with rhubarb pie, 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!
