Mini Rhubarb Crumble Pies!
Let me introduce you to your new favourite pie. It’s tart and sweet with a deliciously flaky crust and a drool-worthy butter and brown sugar crumble. They’re also mini, so that automatically makes them at least 10x cuter. The pie’s filling is made primarily of rhubarb, which combines with a sour cream filling for a perfect pastel pink interior. Rhubarb is in season right now, so get some before its gone! Don’t miss your chance to make these lovely mini rhubarb crumble pies!
Full disclosure, I’ve never had a rhubarb pie before. After making these, I’m so mad at myself for not trying one sooner! The first time I even tried rhubarb was last year when I made this rhubarb lattice tart. The tart was definitely prettier, but I think the flavour of these mini pies has it beat.
Rhubarb definitely trumps apple in my opinion. It’s now near the top of my favourite pies list. I think part of the allure of these mini rhubarb crumble pies is that you can only have them for a limited time. I’ve only ever seen rhubarb around this time of year in Ontario, so that leaves you with a tiny window for making these delicious little gems.
These mini rhubarb crumble pies are also amazing because of the crumble!
It’s got the perfect sweet-butter-crunch ratio and is a refreshing change from a classic pie crust top. I also sort of fell in love with how perfectly pastel pink the filling was. It made for a such a dainty and pretty look!
While I can take credit for how pretty these mini rhubarb crumble pies look, I can’t take credit for the recipe. The original recipe came from my friend Ben’s Aunt Allison. Tash made it the other day and that crumble sounded so good that I knew I had to make it too. The original recipe is for a single regular sized pie. I tried to be a bit different by using the recipe to make mini pies instead. I can never resist anything mini - they’re just too cute!
We still have 3 more of these mini rhubarb crumble pies in the fridge as I write this, but I have a feeling that they won’t last long. I even had one of them for breakfast this morning. It’s fruit though, so it’s ok right? 😉
