rhubarb-pieWe 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!

  • I made this pie recipe for a family BBQ and everyone loved it. It was still hot when I cut into it so it fell apart a little but a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on the top made it look even better.
