Perfect Rhubarb Pie


 I love this recipe for Perfect Rhubarb Pie because it’s so simple. Added bonus: Vodka crust!

Growing up, I didn’t eat a lot of rhubarb.

Maybe there wasn’t a lot of rhubarb in West Texas as that time because fruits and vegetables didn’t fly around the world like they do today.

Perhaps Papa Daddy didn’t like rhubarb. Or it might not have been on Aba’s radar screen. Regardless, I found rhubarb late in life and I fell in love.

My favorite way to enjoy rhubarb is, like most people, in a pie. I love this recipe for Perfect Rhubarb Pie because it’s so simple. Tart, but sweet (like me!). I know the recipe looks long and involved, but that’s the fault of the delicious Vodka Crust. Use a refrigerated pie crust, if you prefer.

I’m going to be taking some time off to pursue some other writing projects. I’ll be posting some of my previous recipes with (much) better images. I’ll be checking my email so please leave comments, suggestions and share my recipes (please!).

Thanks for the fun.

    I have never had rhubarb pie before, in fact until recently I had never even heard of rhubarb at all. I guess I live in the stone age. While visiting family in Michigan last week, my uncle pulled up a piece and made me bite into it. I quickly spit it out, handed it back to him and said thanks a lot. He said well its much better cooked and with some sugar. I was like hmm you think?
    If I get my hand on some, I’ll try your recipe for sure!

      What a prankster, that uncle of yours. Yes, yes, yes… it IS much better cooked and with sugar. But I do like the tartness that it brings to a pie. Let me know if you try this recipe!
