Homemade Rhubarb Pie for Mommy`s Day!

3 years ago

Whilst I was grocery shopping with my mom earlier in the week, we picked up some fresh rhubarb. On the drive home she (my mom) went on & on about how, as a kid, she used to pick wild rhubarb & make a variety of different dishes with it, including pie. She went so in depth about about these dishes, these memories, that I figured for mothers day I ought to try & recreate one of them.

I`m a vegan & unfortunately the pie crust contains butter so it was off limits, but from what I was told the pie came out pretty good! Not bad for my first pie, right? :)

Recipe for the pie crust (taken from `Bob`s Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour` bag);

* 5 Tbsp to 8 Ice Water
* 3/4 cup Unsalted Butter, chilled
* 1 tsp Sea Salt
* 2 cups Whole Wheat Pastry Flour


Sift flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Cut butter into 12 pieces and rub into dry ingredients until the mixture resembles a coarse meal with some pea-size pieces. Sprinkle water over mixture, one tablespoon at a time and knead lightly just until dough forms. Form dough into a ball. Cut in half and press each into a disc shape. Wrap each disc in waxed paper or plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes before rolling.

Bake crust following your pie`s instructions

Recipe for the rhubarb filling (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/fresh-rhubarb-pie/);

* 4 cups chopped rhubarb
* 1 1/3 cups white sugar
* 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
* 1 tablespoon butter
* 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

Combine sugar and flour. Sprinkle 1/4 of it over pastry in pie plate. Heap rhubarb over this mixture. Sprinkle with remaining sugar and flour.

Place pie on lowest rack in oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and continue baking for 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm or cold.

NOTE; In my pie, I didn`t use all of the sugar/flour mixture, I only used about 1-3 tablespoons worth. When baked, rhubarb has a tendency to sweeten & in my opinion, all that added sugar makes it to sweet!

Also, it`s not required or part of the recipe but I made a honey cinnamon glaze and brushed it on top of the pie after it finished baking. It looked delicious & smelt great. All you have to do is melt 1-2 tablespoons of honey & 1-2 teaspoons of cinnamon over medium-high heat, stove top. After the mixture has melted, brush it on top of your fully baked pie. Yum!
