Good pie out of frozen rhubarb?

ninrn | Jan 23, 201907:11 PM     15

Hello,

A dear friend has a birthday coming up and the only thing I know she’d love is a rhubarb pie.

Can’t find one already made here, not even frozen. I can get frozen rhubarb from Sprouts, though. Can a really good pie be made from frozen rhubarb and frozen crust, or is that destined to be a travesty?

I can bake competently from a recipe but am far from a great or intuitive baker. Any recipes for a decent from-frozen filling, and suggestions as to good-quality frozen pie crust would be a big help.

Am I better of ordering overpriced rhubarb pie filling from Amazon? If so, are there any brands you’d recommend?

Any advice (or born-of-experience discouragement) is appreciated.

Thank you,
Ninrn
