Type: Dessert Recipe

Prep Time: 20 min
Bake Time: 1 hr
Yield: one 9 or 10 inch pie


  • rhubarbapproximately 2 – 2 1/2 lbs of fresh rhubarb – washed & trimmed
  • 1 1/2 – 1 3/4 cups sugar – or a bit more, depending on tartness of rhubarb
  • 1/3 cup quick cooking tapioca or cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 tbsp butter – cut into small pieces
  • 1 tbsp milk or cream
  • 2 tbsp sugar – to sprinkle on top crust


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Have ready enough pie dough for one 9 or 10 inch, double crust pie. Roll out and line one pie pan with half of the dough.
  2. Mixing Bowls - shop.cookingwithkimberly.comChop rhubarb stalks into 1/4 – 1/2 inch segments, measure out 6 cups of chopped rhubarb and transfer into a mixing bowl.
  3. Add into the bowl of rhubarb, the sugar, tapioca, lemon juice and salt, and stir to combine thoroughly. Allow mixture to stand for 15 – 20 min and stir occasionally.
  4. Pour the rhubarb filling into the bottom crust and dot the top of the filling with the little pieces of butter.
  5. Cover the pie with a top crust and seal edges. Pierce the top in several places to allow the steam to escape during baking, or create a lattice top.
  6. Lightly brush the top crust or lattice with milk or cream, and evenly sprinkle with 2 tbsp of sugar.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees F for 35 min and then reduce the heat to 350 degrees F for 20 – 30 min more. Pie crust should be golden brown and the juices should be thick and bubbling.
  8. Remove from oven and cool completely on a rack.

Serve with ice cream, if you like. It’s always better that way!
