Whenever I hear the word rhubarb, I always think of my grandma. She made pies every year no matter what. She would only buy rhubarb from a local gardener on her road, he still remembers her fondly. That man is still going strong and I buy it from him now too. It is a family tradition now, every summer I MUST make 2 rhubarb pies. If not, something is seriously wrong! This recipe is the closest to how Grandma's used to taste that I can possibly get it. I have to say, it's really good. Hope you like it!

Total Time: About 30 minutes prep

Yield: 1 pie

Source: Modified from a recipe in an old dutch cookbook


  • 1 pastry shell, homemade or store bought
  • Filling
  • 1 1/2 cup cups white flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 cups rhubarb, chopped
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Topping
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Mix together your filling of sugar, flour and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Add to rhubarb to bowl and mix well. Place in your pie shell.
  4. Combine eggs and cream and pour over your pie.

  • pie crust
  • rhubarb to fill the pie shell (sliced)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar or 1 cup of honey
  • 3/4 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
  • 8 oz. container of sour cream (1 cup)
  • Ad

  • 1/3 cup white flour


Put sliced rhubarb into the pie crust. In bowl, mix together sugar, sour cream, flour and cinnamon and pour these over rhubarb. Bake in an 350 degree F oven for 50 to 65 minutes (usually about an hour) or until sour cream is slightly browned in patches. Wait until this pie cools to get the real sweet and sour yummy taste. If you eat it while it's still hot, not only will the filling not be "set up" but it will taste very sour. But after it cools, it tastes just right! I like sour things so I reduce the sugar to 1 cup.

Note: You should double the recipe and make 2 of these yummy pies, because way back in 1980 when I first tasted this pie (the first time I met my then boyfriends parents) I thought I disliked all pie.


But after I tried one slice of this, I couldn't stop myself and kept coming back for more of his mom's wonderful rhubarb cream pie. (I think I had 4 pieces the night we arrived!) Mt. St. Helens blew the next day, turning the whole sky pitch-black (which turned the street lights on at noon!) We had a hard time driving back through all the ash to our jobs at Boeing, but I had her tasty recipe in my pocket! She's since passed on to the happy bakery in the sky, but her recipe lives on, and it's the only pie I'll make. I love it, love it, LOVE IT!

If you're using the 'old-fashioned' rhubarb with the greenish stalks, add several drops of food coloring. If you're using the Canadian red rhubarb, there's no need for food coloring.
