Cranberry Rhubarb Pie Recipe


What to do when you have lots of rhubarb leftover but not quite enough to fill a second Rhubarb Pie? Why, you find what fruit you have in the freezer and you use that. Cranberries it is!  I was a bit hesitant to use a second tart fruit in this pie, thinking it might be overpowering. But, friends, believe you me...this pie is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Perfectly sweet, perfectly tart, perfectly set (no juices flowing all over the pie plate.)

  1. got almighty spoke to me through my tastebuds.....crying of joy!!! THANK YOU

  2. Delicious pie! Somehow, the cranberry tempered the tartness of the rhubarb - this recipe is a keeper!

  3. Rhubarb and cranberries are two of my favourites so I was looking for a pie recipe, and very glad to find one that was so simple. The filling set better than most pie I've baked. This recipe calls for 1 and a third cup sugar, I wasn't going to reduce that because hey, it's rhubarb and cranberry, which are pretty tart, but the result is quite sweet so if you like the tartness, don't be afraid to cut back on the sugar. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. we don't like rhubarb. what else could be substituted for that ingredient?
