Fresh Rhubarb Pie Recipe

Fresh Rhubarb PieMr.Picky was in need of a rhubarb pie, so I went to my favorite recipe Fresh Rhubarb Pie Recipe – Allrecipes.com.  This tastes like a million bucks and always turns out perfect.  If you have crust already made it takes maybe 10 minutes to put together.

I love the tartness of rhubarb against a flaky crust and a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Ice cream is not my favorite but some dessert require ice cream and this is one of them.  Rhubarb is one of my favorite vegetables and I can’t wait to try a bunch of new savory recipes I came across.

Rhubarb Pie:

  • 1 recipe of a 9 inch double crust, I would recommend my never fail pie crust recipe
  • 4-5 cups rhubarb, chopped
  • 1 1/3 cup sugar
  • 6 Tbs flour
  • 1 Tbs butter

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Roll out first pie crust and place in a 9 inch pie plate.

Combine sugar and flour, and sprinkle the bottom crust with 1/4 of the mixture.

Add the chopped rhubarb and sprinkle evenly with the remaining sugar and flour mixture.

Dot the pie with small pieces of butter and cover with top crust.  Slice a few 2-3 inch marks on top of crust for steam to escape.

Place pie on lowest rack of oven, and bake for 15 minutes.

Reduce heat on oven to 350 degrees and continue baking for 40-45 minutes.

Serve warm or cold with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crunch

Strawberry Rhubarb CrunchI played around with my favorite crisp recipe from Allrecipes.com, and this is what I came up with.  Not that the original wasn’t tasty but we didn’t need all the fat of butter.  Any berry would probably work well with this recipe, just as long as you have 6 cups of fruit.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crunch:

Strawberry Rhubarb CrunchMix 1 cup sugar, 3 Tbs flour, strawberries and rhubarb in a bowl.  Place in a greased 9×13″ pan.

Crumble the remaining ingredients and spread on top of fruit mixture.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.

Rhubarb Dream

Rhubarb DreamAs I walked through our local farmers market and saw the first stocks of rhubarb I knew I had to have some.  This will be my first batch of rhubarb dream this year, but not my last.  This is an old family recipe.  I am not sure how it got its name but I imagine it is because you will dream of it.  It is not a bar cookie or a pie but a combination of the two.  All I can say is give it a try, you will not be disappointed.  Think lemon squares meets rhubarb, but even better.

Rhubarb Dream:

Crust:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 5 Tbs powdered sugar
  • ½ cup butter, softened

Filling:

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ¾ teasp salt
  • 2 cups finely chopped rhubarb

Cut the first three ingredients together to make crust.  Press into a 8×11″ pan.

Bake crust at 350° for 15 min.Rhubarb Dream

Sift or whisk remaining sugar, flour, salt. Mix with eggs and rhubarb.

Spoon topping on top of crust and bake at 350° for 35 minutes.
