This is great, I'll be making this again many times. I added 1/4 cup chopped walnuts to the crust, increased the rhubarb to 4 cups & added an extra TBSP milk in the crust. I have a rhubarb plant that is an over achiver and am always looking for new GOOD rhubarb recipes. This one fits the bill.
Too much sugar sitting on top, though my husband liked the crunch because he didn't know it was a cup of sugar. Don't think I'll use this recipe again.
This is a SURPRISE!!! Lots of raves and oohs and ahhs. Used a 10" pie plate - had 5 cups of rhubarb so used it all - It turned out just super - sure will be making again and again.A little Ice cream or whip cream added on top just hit the spot.
My neighbor grows rhubarb and gave me some to use. I made this pie and shared it with him. I did use almost 5 cups of rhubarb as suggested and did use some brown sugar for the topping instead of all white. Also added the walnuts as suggested. Very very good! Served it with vanilla ice cream. Thanks!
Great recipe. Just make sure you use the 3 cups of rhubarb (could use up to 3 1/2 if wanted to), or you won't have alot of filling to equal with the crust. I used frozen rhubarb that i had put in the freezer, came out fine. My father loved it and hubby who isn't fond of rhubarb liked it too!!. I'd make again.
maybe it was too warm but I had to roll the pie crust out between plastic wrap. The topping stirred into a batter and I added oatmeal to obtain crumble texture. Still the gelatin kick was a hit flavour with the kids.
I thought this made an excellant pie and was simple to make. Very tasty. I will make it again, since I grow my own rhubard Joan.
It was great to see this recipe. I received the recipe from my mom's neighbor 30 years ago and have never seen it in print since that time!! It's been a family favorite for all these years, and every time I take it to a gathering it is also a hit. Thanks for submitting it for others to see. I've added other fresh berries along with with rhubarb which is also great.
