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.

    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.

  6. Ann, as usual, it looks deliciously wonderful!!!!

  7. Beautiful pie! The crust looks wonderful! Great dinner:)

    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!

    I think I would like to come to your house for dinner! Rhubarb pie has been a favorite of mine since I was a child.

  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

    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.Ann
