Simple Rhubarb Pie

Rhubarb pie has got to be one of my favorite desserts in the world. It is tart and sweet and when served with whipped cream it is over the top delicious.

My mom made a lot of rhubarb pies while I was growing up. I have always loved the combination of sweet and tart that the pie is famous for.

Ingredients needed

  • rhubarb
  • white sugar
  • all-purpose flour
  • butter
  • 1 box ready made pie dough 
  • 1 large egg + 1 tsp water for egg wash
  • for garnish: sparkling sugar

The warmer the pie is the trickier it can be to get it cleanly out of the pie plate. It might be a little messy, but it is so stinkin’ good!

What to serve with Rhubarb Pie?

Whipped cream and vanilla ice cream are wonderful with rhubarb pie. It is very flavorful so these aren’t necessarily needed, but they do taste great with it to cut that tart flavor a bit.
