A delicious, tart and sweet pie this Blackberry Rhubarb Crumble Pie is the perfect mixture of flavors that just burst and excite your tastebuds.
So we are going to the zoo today. I haven’t been to the zoo in like 6 years so it’s going to be a nice refreshing change of pace. I’m going with my friend Beth and her kids, so between the two of us we have my 4 kids and her 2, all in a vehicle for 2.5 hours driving to the zoo. Call us crazy, but I’m looking forward to the adventure. And I think so are our kids!
The zoo is just something that when the weather rolls around is a great option to bring the kids too, unfortunately we live in the middle of nowhere and our options of activities around our area are limited so it’s nice when we are able to take some days off to find time to go places like this with our kids!
Another great thing we enjoy when the weather is nice is this Blackberry Rhubarb Crumble Pie. I’m like the hugest rhubarb fan! Unfortunately I don’t have my own bush but my parents do and my mom doesn’t like rhubarb so it’s fair game to me…sometimes. Sometimes she doesn’t like me picking it, which is weird since she doesn’t consume it anyways…I’m still trying to figure that one out. Luckily my dad was the one who brought me in this rhubarb so I bypassed any lecture from my mom for taking too much. LOL!
Anyways, this pie is so so so easy! I was lazy and used a frozen pie crust. But don’t judge me, school has been out for less than a week. I have my 4 kids home with me, 2 daycare kids that I’m taking on this Summer and all my blogging stuff…I’m still trying to find my bearings. So I sometimes like to take the occasional short cut. Which I think is absolutely fine, but some people told me that they don’t like it because it’s not completely homemade. Well tough, my friends.
Usually the majority of my recipes ARE 100% from scratch like all my layer cakes and frostings, but life happens and you just need to take a break and that’s what I did. But in my defense, I did make another pie coming this week, using a completely homemade pie crust! So you have to give me some credit right?
Anyways, back to this pie being super easy. You literally just toss in a bowl rhubarb, blackberries, sugar and corn starch and throw it into a crust and top it with a crumble and bake it up. Seriously from all those very minor steps you get something like this which is absolutely amazing, people really don’t know that you can create delicious treats with minimal effort and I LOVE IT!
Occasionally I’ll make those bizarre recipes that have like a million steps, but I usually try to bypass this because..ain’t no body got time for that! But I have to admit, it does feel accomplishing when you do finish a complicated recipe and it actually turns out. I have had so many fail me that it’s laughable, for real.
So if you’re looking for your new pie of the Summer this Blackberry Rhubarb Pie is calling your name. It’s the perfect amount of sweet and tart that will just make your mouth light up. And it’s even better with a big scoop of ice cream on top, but what isn’t right?
