Matthew 6:11 Rhubarb Pie, Oh My!


While grocery shopping with my grown daughters they spotted fresh rhubarb, ” Will you make us a pie”? This may sound a little odd coming from 2 southern raised women. Rhubarb does not grow in our hot Texas climate. For years I wondered “what  kind of expensive red celery is that”? My mind was set at ease while living in Germany. 

In the area of Germany where we lived rhubarb grew wild. A well meaning northern raised girlfriend harvested a huge bunch and shared it with me! The look on my face must have told her I was clueless. Thankfully she was gracious and shared her family  recipes. Since that day over 40 years ago I have been making rhubarb pies every chance I get. Which isn’t often in West Texas! 

Here’s the recipe she shared….


1 1/2 – 2 pounds fresh rhubarb diced

1 cup flour

1 cup sugar

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 egg beaten 

Mix all together and place in prepared pie pan, add top crust. Bake at 350 for 1 ½ hours. 


We like to let the pie cool until warm then slice and serve with a scoop or 2 of vanilla ice cream Yum!

Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:11 ESV

Today we got PIE!
