Rhubarb Pineapple Pie



Forget strawberry and rhubarb. Pineapple and rhubarb are an outstanding combination and make up what is probably my favorite pie. Homemade pie dough is of course best, but premade dough that you can roll out yourself will work in a pinch. After the egg wash, don't forget to sprinkle the top of the pie with sugar before baking. Enjoy!


Rhubarb Pineapple Pie
Makes one pie

Ingredients:

  • 1 1⁄4 cups sugar
  • 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 1⁄4 cups thinly sliced rhubarb
  • 14 ounces crushed drained pineapple
  • pastry for double-crust pie
  • 1 egg, beaten well for egg wash
  • 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar

Directions:

  1. In large bowl measure 1st amount of sugar and flour, stir. Add rhubarb and pineapple, stir. Pour fruit mixture into unbaked pie shell.
  2. Moisten pastry rim and cover with top crust. Cut slits in top crust to let steam escape. Brush the top crust lightly with the egg wash. Sprinkle evenly with remaining tablespoon of sugar.
  3. Bake in 350° oven on bottom rack for 50- 60 minutes until browned and rhubarb is cooked.

  2. Sounds really good. On Sunday I made a crumble. I wanted enough for 6 at supper and a couple of 2 serving ones to go in the freezer. I picked the rhubarb that was ready, had a pound of strawberries, about 2 cups of blueberries, one odd apple in the fridge and a container with about 3/4 cup of pineapple. It all went in together. I've been making crumbles for over 40 years and hubby said it was the best one I ever made. Who would have thought!!!

    1. I hope you find some good recipes to try out with it. I've had the hardest time finding rhubarb anywhere here. I finally found a little at the farmers market but the stores have had nothing :(
