Fresh Rhubarb Pie | "This is the best pie that I've ever tasted. I used purchased refrigerated pie crust. Most pies and desserts here in the south are simply too sweet but this pie is perfect...just sweet enough and allows the flavor of the rhubarb to shine. Thank you for this wonderful recipe."
This rhubarb pie contains no distractions, like strawberries The crust is made with shortening (Butter is fine if you want a French tart, but it's not American pie unless it's made with shortening, the author Anne Dimock said.) The top is marked with 8 razor-thin vents.
Take advantage of rhubarb season with this easy dessert. Baked and unmolded, this cake resembles a pale pink mosaic atop velvet-crumbed and vanilla-infused cake. The rhubarb, which you’ll add in raw, is tangy and tender, firm enough to give you something to chew over. It’s an easy half-hour of prep and another hour and change in the oven, ample time for a light supper, anticipation of dessert hanging in the spring air.
