This is a really good recipe to make with your children. It’s fun to involve kids in the kitchen, and for beginning cooks it’s great to start out with a simple recipe that they can be proud of making!

Below is the recipe as well as how you can involve your children step by step in the preparation.

Rhubarb Crumble Pie

Ingredients and Directions:

4 cups diced rhubarb

1 cup turbinado (raw sugar)

Let your child measure out the ingredients and combine them in a medium bowl. Have your child use a large spoon to mix together the rhubarb and sugar. Let this sit for 15-20 minutes so the sugar can draw the juice out of the rhubarb. Depending on how tart your rhubarb is, you may choose to add more sugar.

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

2 Tbsp soft whole wheat pastry flour

1 beaten egg

Help your child measure out the cinnamon, flour and use a fork to beat the egg. Stir them together and then add to the rhubarb/sugar mixture.

1 cup soft whole wheat pastry flour

1/4 tsp. salt

1 cup old-fashioned oats

1/4 cup turbinado

6 Tbsp butter, melted

Next, let your child measure {my daughter’s favorite job is to level off the measuring cups!} the flour, salt, oats, turbinado and butter. Together, stir these ingredients with clean hands or a wooden spoon to make a crumbly mixture. 








Help your little one press 2 cups of crust mixture on the bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie plate. Hold the bowl over the crust and let your child use a spatula to push the rhubarb mixture onto the crust. Top with remaining crumbles.

Bake at 350 Farenheit for 45 minutes.  Enjoy this pie warm with ice cream!
