I first had rhubarb pie when I was about 6. It was tart and sweet at the same time, also very filling. It is the best rhubarb pie I have ever had. This is the recipe my Grandmother(Nanny) wrote for me.

Ingredients

2 9-inch pie crusts
4 cups uncooked, unpeeled rhubarb
6 tablespoons flour
1-1/3 to 2 cups of sugar, depending on how tart you prefer your pie

Instructions

Cut rhubarb into 1-inch pieces or smaller. Mix sugar and flour together and then mix with rhubarb. Put into bottom pie crust and place top crust over. Brush top crust with milk to make it nice and brown. Bake for 15 minutes at 450 degrees, then reduce heat to 350 degrees for 45 minutes longer.

HELP!! My mom-ma had a

HELP!! My mom-ma had a recipe for sweet Rhubarb pie in the early 80's that used instant Tapioca vs flour or starch for the thickner, and it was just FAB!! The recipe was lost +20 years ago. Does anyone have that recipe and would be willing to share?

My "Nanny" also made this pie

My "Nanny" also made this pie and I'm glad to find it again; most rhubarb pie recipes I've seen add strawberries which she never did. Thank you!
