1 1/4 cups
chopped fresh rhubarb
1 (9 inch)
unbaked pie shell
Great way to use up the huge crop of rhubarb we have. Although, I do think that there is an error in the recipe- the butter should be cold, not softened if you want the top coating to be a crumble. Softening it makes the topping more like a batter consistency. Also important is using full fat sour cream. I used fat free and came out with a soft- set filling.
This pie was beautiful out of the oven and tasted great. Next time I'm going to increase the rhubarb to 4 cups - I think it would be even better.
I've been making Rhubarb Custard Pie with meringue for years. I thought that was the best rhubarb recipe, but this Sour Cream Pie beats it.
I loved the soft, non-watery texture inside the pie. I wouldn't change anything except maybe add an extra stalk of rhubarb. Excellent pie!
I made this last night exactly as the recipe is written and it is delicious! I'll make it again with a few minor changes - I think it needs more rhubarb (4-5 cups), a little less sugar, and the streusel topping needs more cinnamon (oh, and I used brown sugar instead of white). A great way to use up all your rhubarb!
I used egg beaters for the eggs and it turned out great. Only 9 points on WW with the egg beaters. 4.5 if you only eat a half piece!
This is my favorite pie. When I don't have enough rhubarb I add strawberries to make up the difference.
We made this for the first time last night and it was excellent! We also served it to some friends and they loved it as well. I have never cooked with rhubarb before but it is yummy!
