Rhubarb Cutie Pies

Thank you, rhubarb! You’ve provided the inspiration for my first new recipe since the baby was born!  This recipe can be used to make four cutie pies (4 1/2″ pans) or one 9″ pie.

  • dough for 2-crusted pie
  • 3 cups sliced rhubarb
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3 heaping Tbsp cornstarch
  • pinch salt

Line pie pans with dough and crimp the edges.  Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour into pie pans.  Cut the remaining pie crust with a cookie cutter, place on a baking sheet and sprinkle with a pinch of sugar.  Bake pie crust “cookies” for 8-12 minutes at 375ºF, and bake pies for 45 minutes, until bubbly and crust is browned.  Let cool and top with pie crust cookies.  Go ahead and eat any extra pie crust cookies!

  1. Too cute. . .and yummy, too, I bet! You know, with a new baby in your arms, it would be okay if sometimes you didn’t make the dough from scratch . . . then you wouldn’t put me to shame so much!

  2. These look amazing! With all the nursing, you need the extra calories, and I think I will be trying these this weekend. Being pregnant I figure I can manage a few extra calories as well :-)

  3. Those really are cutie pies. I’m thinking they would be perfect for a Mother’s Day treat.
