Rhubarb Pie for Dinner..............

not as dessert 
but as the Main Course

Handwoven Tea Towel from Leola's Studio



About 3:30 PM I started thinking about the fact that I had nothing planned for dinner.  We had a late lunch and dinner was the last thing on my mind.

I offered to bake Moe a Rhubarb Pie and he jumped at that suggestion.   Luckily I have my rhubarb and Clif's rhubarb patch to pick from. 
    
 I made my regular pastry, using all butter.   Makes for a very flakey crust.

Almost like puff pastry.

The pie went into the oven about 4:30.


Served warm topped with whipped cream.

  5. Pie for dinner works for me. Rhubarb is one of my favorites. You've got me practically drooling, Ann, and I would eat a big wedge right now if it was in front of me.

  8. I am going to have to try that crust - it look incredible. I love rhubarb. Save me a piece!

    I am with you, when you get to a certain age and you don't have to show the children how they should eat, you should be able to eat pie for supper!!! You go girl!

  10. I bow to your genius. Not only pie for dinner - but rhubarb pie. Why haven't I ever thought of doing that? Our rhubarb (commonly known as "Ruby da Rhubarb") has been going bonkers this season and is now bigger than it was when I first cropped it a few weeks ago. Dare I put Rhubarb Pie on the menu as dinner? lol

  12. I printed out the rhubarb pie recipe and then searched your recipe index for the pie crust you mentioned using butter. If you are reading these messages Ann - could you direct me to your favorite pie crust recipe in your index. Thanks Judy

  13. Thank you for all your lovely comments.

    Not only did it make a great dinner, but it was a great breakfast too. LOL!

    Judy, I edited the post to add a link to the pastry recipe. Try using a box grater, large holes, to grate the butter. Makes the perfect size pieces for a flaky crust.
