Rhubarb and cherry pie

Servings 6
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes


  • 180 g flour you can try different types
  • 50 g almond powder
  • 85 g butter softened if you didn’t take it out of the fridge, you can still put in a few minutes on top on your heating system or a few seconds in the microwave
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 5 to 6 cl tepid water
  • 3 sticks of rhubarb
  • ½ tsp vanilla powder
  • 30 cherries
  • 6 tbsp brown sugar
  • slivered almonds or almond powder optional


  • Start by preparing the shortcrust pastry. Mix the flour, almond powder and salt in a bowl.
  • Dice the softened butter. Then add the butter to the mixture and mix and knead with your fingertips for a few minutes to obtain a crumble-like texture.
  • Add the water little by little (adjust the amount according to the texture of the dough) so that the pieces of dough can be tied together to form a smooth, non-sticky ball.
  • Leave to rest for 15 minutes.
  • Wash the rhubarb sticks, and cut them into pieces of about 4 cm.
  • Make a compote by heating them over low heat in a small saucepan with 4 tablespoons of sugar for about 7/8 minutes. Then add the vanilla powder.
  • Roll out your shortcrust pastry and place in a pie tin (well buttered or covered with baking paper).
  • Spread the rhubarb compote on the bottom of the tart.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Rinse the cherries, cut them in halves to stone them.
  • Spread them evenly over the rhubarb compote.
  • Sprinkle with a little almond powder or flaked almonds.
  • Cook for about 30 minutes at 180°C. Watch the cooking.
  • Serve warm or cold, with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream for the greediest 🙂


This very easy pie is also very easy to modify according to your tastes and what you have at hand.
Depending on the season, you can for instance replace the cherries by strawberries or raspberries, or mix several red fruits according to what you are able to find.
You can also replace almonds with peeled and crushed pistachios.
Just try what’s on your mind!
