Sour Cream Rhubarb Pie Recipe

Sour Cream Rhubarb Pie Recipe

Field editor Doreen Martin from Kitimat, British Columbia shares her creamy rhubarb pie with a twist. "A hint of orange flavor and a nice blend of spices complement the tangy rhubarb," she writes. "I like to serve the pie while it's still warm."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange or lemon peel
  • 1/3 cup cold butter, cubed
  • FILLING:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Refrigerate while preparing topping and filling.
  • 2. Mix oats, flour, brown sugar and orange peel; cut in butter until crumbly. In a large bowl, mix sugar, cornstarch and spices; stir in sour cream and egg. Fold in rhubarb; pour into crust. Sprinkle with oat mixture.
  • 3. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven setting to 350°; bake until topping is golden brown, 35-40 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

"Excellent alternative to a traditional rhubarb pie. I was looking for a crumb-topped rhubarb pie recipe, and this was the perfect choice. The hint of orange really does complement the rhubarb. I substituted a few drops of orange extract for the grated orange peel, and that worked well. Will definitely make this again"

"This pie tastes okay, but if you want rhubarb pie this isn't it."
