Best Rhubarb Pie is one of my favorite summer recipe! Delicious, flaky crust filled with the best, pink rhubarb! Mhmm... yummy!

R hubarb season is probably my favorite when it comes to baking! There are some many amazing recipes with this delicious plant! I totally love the sour taste, that combines so well with sweet pastries and other seasonal fruits!

This pie in an absolute must-bake this summer! My secret ingredient, which makes to taste pop, is a ginger add-on.

A few tips how to achieve the perfect flaky pastry:

  • Always use chilled butter!
  • Don't add water to the dough! Mix until it comes together. Adding water makes the dough shrinking in the oven, as it evaporates.
  • Sprinkle the bottom with a little bit of flour or breadcrumbs. It will prevent the liquid filling from absorbing into the dough.
  • Add 1-2 Tbsp potato/corn starch to the filling that contains a lot of liquid (fruits).

I would love to see your creations! Tag me in your pictures, if you add them on Instagram :)
