From the Oba Yo Test Kitchen: Taunte Mary’s Easy Rhubarb Pie


Taune Mary says this is an “Amish Mennonite” recipe. I’m not sure how Amish or Mennonite it is, but it's sure easy and fast!


1 graham cracker pie shell (9 inch)

4 cups rhubarb, sliced 1/2 inch thick

1 cup sugar

6 tablespoons all-purpose our

1 teaspoon salt

½ package strawberry or raspberry Jell-O



1 cup all-purpose our

1 dash salt

1/2cup sugar

1/4cup butter, softened



Preheat oven to 425º F.

Combine the rhubarb, sugar, Jello-O powder and salt.

Spoon into graham cracker pie shell.

Bake for 30 minutes.


Combine topping ingredients; mix with hands until large crumbs form.

Sprinkle crumbs on top.

Bake for 15 minutes more or until crumbs are brown and pie is bubbly.

Let the pie cool for at least 45 minutes to an hour. (otherwise it will be too runny).  Serve with with vanilla ice cream! 

This rhubarb pie is tart and sweet. Taunte Mary said it was much like Onkel Erdman lol!  Depending on your taste, you might want to add more sugar.
