  • Pastry for Single-Crust Pie (see recipe below)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 slightly beaten eggs
  • 4 cups sliced fresh rhubarb or thawed and drained frozen sliced rhubarb
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter


  1. Prepare Pastry for Single-Crust Pie. Preheat oven to 400 degrees . For filling: In a large bowl, combine 11/2 cups sugar, 1/4 cup flour and the nutmeg. Add the eggs; mix well. Gently stir in the rhubarb. Turn the mixture into the pastry-lined pie plate.
  2. For streusel: In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup flour and 1/4 cup sugar. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, cut or rub in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the pie.

Pastry for Single-Crust Pie


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 3 - 4 tablespoons cold water


  1. On a lightly floured surface, flatten dough with hands. Roll dough from center to edges, forming a 12-inch circle. Ease pastry into a 9-inch pie plate, being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate; fold under extra pastry. Flute edge; do not prick pastry.
  2. In a bowl, stir together all-purpose flour and salt. Cut in shortening until pieces are the size of small peas. Using cold water, sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the water over part of mixture; gently toss with a fork. Push to side of bowl. Repeat until all is moistened. Form dough into a ball.

This pie is amazing! The perfect combination between a rhubarb crisp and a rhubarb pie. I heard rave reviews from my family, especially about the crust. I stuck to the recipe but had to bake it a little longer (extra 10 minutes) to get it nice and brown, but that is probably just my oven. I used a mixture of fresh and frozen (thawed and drained) rhubarb because I didn't have enough fresh from what a friend had gifted me. The crust recipe has an error in the directions--the first and second steps are reversed, but that's pretty obvious for most people to figure out. This will definitely go into my regular dessert rotation for rhubarb season!
