Cozy Food: Rhubarb Pie

Rhubarb pie is one of my favorite pies. I think it might even tie with Pumpkin pie for most favorite. I remember one time making it with fresh rhubarb at my aunt's house when I was really young and even though I've only had it a couple of times since then, it's still held it's own as one of my favorite pies. It's just the right amount of sweet and tangy. I got it in my head last week to try my hand at making it! I've never made a pie like this before, a fruit filled-type pie. I've made pumpkin pie, but not one of these fancy double crust, lattice top ones. I found an awesome recipe on and just went for it! It turned out amazing. I'm so excited, I have some leftover rhubarb so I want to make another!


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
