Sour Cream Rhubarb Pie
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling
- 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
- 1 cup sugar

- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 3 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
- 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.

Editor's NoteIf 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.

Very easy - as pies go. Absolutely delicious! Even people that don't normally like rhubarb like this pie.
