This rhubarb pie is simple, but good. I love the crumb topping on it. For a slight change, try Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie. The crumb topping may be replaced with a full or lattice crust.

This pie is fantastic! The easy to follow directions make this a breeze to prepare. I LOVED the crumb topping to which I couldn't resist adding a few generous dashes of cinnamon to. With a scoop of ice cream this makes THE perfect springtime dessert. Most definitely a keeper!

This was super simple and really really good. My only change was to add about quadruple the lemon juice (my mistake) and my kids thought it might have been even better with the extra kick. I agree that the crumb topping is fabulous.

I always have lots of rhubarb from the garden but never any strawberries on hand so it was so nice to find a pie without strawberries. The flavor and consistancy were so good and I'm not even a big rhubarb fan. I think the crumb topping is what made this a five star. THANKS!
