Homemade Rhubarb Pie

This is the recipe for Homemade Rhubarb Pie you’ve been looking for!

This HOMEMADE RHUBARB PIE has been years in the making! Pies weren’t always my thing; for years I simply enjoyed the stellar pies made by my mom. I guess I figured there was no need for me to do it when so many others had the pie making thing down cold.

Then, pie week happened! A few months after purchasing the cottage, my eldest sister Milisa came up for an extended visit. She and I share a number interests, like choral music and detective and suspense novels. It was during that week that Milisa and I went pie-crazy. We listened to great music and we made a whole bunch of pies. Ever since, pies have been a passion.

Needless to say, I’m now a big proponent of this time-honoured culinary tradition. If you’ve never made a pie from scratch before, I’m hoping this post encourages you. Make a pie once and you’ll be making them forever.

Here are a few key things to keep in mind when you go to make this Homemade Rhubarb Pie:

Discs of pie dough ready to be chilled

Making dough from scratch can be intimidating and stops most people from making pies, but fear not – HERE is my easy-to-follow tutorial on making pie dough. The recipe yields six discs of dough so you’ll be able to make additional pies over the next few months!

Ingredients for homemade rhubarb pie

In my opinion, RHUBARB is a wonder plant. The distinct, tart flavour is so perfect in this application because of the way we soften it with sugar and vanilla. There’s nothing quite like it. Before chopping up the stalks to use in recipes, be sure to remove the ruffled, fan-shaped green leaves from the ends. Why? They’re toxic and you’ll get very sick if you eat them.

Cut slits into the top crust of the pie so that hot air can escape while the pie bakes.

You can decorate the top of this pie a number of different ways. I always bake a SPICED PUMPKIN PIE without a top crust while my PEACH PIE gets the crisscross lattice. For this pie, I recommend a full top crust complete with small slits to allow the steam to escape during baking.

A little bit of rhubarb syrup weeping through the crust

Rhubarb pies have a tendency to weep when baking, usually in the last 15 minutes or so when the rhubarb softens and the sugar and cornstarch start bubbling. I suggest placing a cookie sheet on the rack beneath to catch any overflow.

Finally, I think this pie always begs for a stylish send-off to the table when it’s time to serve – à la mode with vanilla ice cream, for a perfect presentation.

The quintessential flavour of HOMEMADE RHUBARB PIE is beyond compare. Make it, serve it and savour it!
