Cherry Rhubarb Crumb Pie

Susan Bickta


I'm not sure of the origin of this recipe. I remember my mother making it in the 1970's to use the abundance of rhubarb in our garden. Most home cooks made Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, but this recipe calls for cherry pie filling instead of strawberries. It's truly my favorite fruit pie.
