Rhubarb Crumble Pie

Recipe by CountryLady

This easy, old fashioned family recipe goes back more than 5 generations - from Kate Kelly of Kanata, Ontario! Make your own pastry base or buy a ready made shell to save time. You can aso make this with a full pastry or lattice top. Try adding a tsp of orange zest to the filling - its delicious!

What a delicious pie! A little sweeter than traditional rhubarb, which suits me fine! My husband really enjoyed it too. I omitted the 2 Tbls of butter from the top of the filling and it turned out great. Will definitely make again and again.
