Hello Lovelies, today I would like to share a recipe for a delicious rhubarb pie with you – just in time for Mother’s Day. I’m really happy that Rhubarb is still in season here (if it might not be in season where you live, you can use apples instead), since there are many recipes I still want to try. I’m lucky that I can get rhubarb and other fresh products directly from a fellow mama in the small village we live in. She grows everything in her big garden and so all fruits and veggies are of course organic and I love to support her passion as well.
I already made these delicious muffins with rhubarb recently (you can get the recipe here), so I wanted to make something different this time. And can you imagine, that I never made a classical pie before? I made tartes and quiches, but never a pie, so it was about time. So I thought with Mother’s Day approaching on Sunday, this would be the perfect recipe, since it can be decorated pretty, but is not as heavy as a cake with cream.
So here is the recipe:
Even though I think we should honor our Mom’s all year round, Mother’s Day is a nice opportunity to make a special day for you moms. My girls already love to do it, they prepare a breakfast, set the table and pick flowers. They even made a gift in Kindergarten, I’m already curious what it is, of course it’s still well hidden. The value of a gift is not important at all, it’s more the gesture and I’m pretty sure a heart decorated pie would be a lovely surprise.
The little hearts lost their color a bit during baking, but I think it still turned out really pretty. I have to admit, I’m a bit proud of my first pie and it was easier then I thought at the beginning, even with the hearts as decoration.
This Pie would be a lovely gift if you want to bake something special for your moms. It’s easy to make, doesn’t require much ingredients, and even kids could manage to make it alone, maybe with a little help from their dads or another grown-up.
We ate the pie with vegan ice cream, but whipped cream would be a perfect match as well or just sprinkle on some powdered sugar.
Do you already have something planned for your moms? Or what was the nicest surprise you received as a mom yourself? Maybe its a heart decorated rhubarb pie this year :-).
