We always hear about Strawberry-Rhubarb pies, and there are thousands and thousands of recipes for that delicious treat. But here is one you may bot have seen before – I think it is native to Ontario – at least the name suggests that. Most of the time, strawberries are added to bring sweetness and extra flavour to the pie – but – really – try this recipe and I think you will agree that the delicious topping used here more than makes up for the berries!
Homemade Ontario Rhubarb Pie:
Prepare single pie crust (recipe for Homemade Crust is below for your convenience)
Bake your pie crust until golden – remember to puncture a few little holes in it to let it breathe during baking.
Cool your pie crust before filling it
2 cups of chopped rhubarb
1 large egg
1-1/2 cups of sugar
1 cup of sour cream
1/3 cup of flour
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, sugar, sour cream and flour. Put chopped rhubarb into cooled pie crust and pour mixed ingredients over it.
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of brown sugar
2-3 tablespoons of melter margarine or butter
Combine ingredients in a small bowl until all mixed evenly and sprinkle over pie prepared with filling.
Bake at 350F for 45-50 minutes or until edges of pie puffed up and the topping is golden. The centre of your pie may still be a little soft – so make sure you cool the pie completely before slicing and serving.
This is great with vanilla ice cream – try it and let me know what you think!
