Rhubarb-Pie Variations
Rhubarb Cherry
Pie With Rhubarb and Pineapple

A rhubarb-pie isn't strictly this fruity filling only. There are many winning combinations to choose from. Like rhubarb-chiffon? Old-fashioned rhubarb pie? How many of us haven't heard of good old rhubarb and strawberry? Here are a few more pie recipes you may like to try for a change of pace.

But first, do you use store-bought pie crust? No problem! Or, are you a master of your own unique pastry recipe? Great!

If you are still having a problem with crust recipes, I urge you to try the recipe my Mother gave me for her Mom's Never Fail Pastry that really works well with anything.

Either way, these fillings will be fine with your own brand of pie shell.


You will need enough pastry for two crusts or you can make a lattice-top

2 cups chopped rhubarb
1 large can cherry pie filling
2/3 cup white sugar
2 1/2 tsp. quick-cook tapioca
1 tblsp. sugar for sprinkling

Combine all ingredients (except tblsp. sugar)and let stand for 10 minutes. Pour into unbaked pie shell, and cover with top crust. Brush with a little bit of milk and sprinkle on the sugar.

Bake at 400 F. for 45 minutes until it browns and begins to bubble up.


3 cups chopped rhubarb

1 1/2 tsp. tapioca

1 cup sugar

3 tsp. grated orange rind

Mix the above ingredients and pour into 9" pie shell.

3 cups chopped rhubarb

2 cans (8 oz. ea) crushed pineapple drained

1 cup honey

3 tblsp. tapioca

1 tsp. grated lemon peel

2 chilled pie crusts

Combine ingredients; let stand 15 minutes and then pour into a 9" shell.

Cover the top with second shell. Trim and seal edges. Cut slits on top pastry. Bake at 350F for 45 minutes until filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.

Top with ice cream or whipped cream

Sugar on top of your crust is great for decoration, but to avoid juices bubbling up through slits in the crust, sprinkle the sugar on top of your filling first before covering it with the top shell.
