Rhubarb Pie with Strawberry Jello Recipe

All year long, I mark old fashioned rhubarb recipes in my vintage cookbooks to try out in the spring.  And, that’s exactly what I did with this Rhubarb Pie recipe using Strawberry Jell-O mix in my Wayneburg Christian Church Cook Book.

This recipe stood out because it uses the short-cut ingredient of Strawberry Jell-O mix. It also has a crumble topping made with flour, sugar and melted margarine. Think of this pie as a combination of pie and an old fashioned crumble.

Rhubarb Recipes with Strawberry Jello

My Grandma’s Rhubarb Pie recipe is a classic pie featuring only Rhubarb (no strawberry).  It holds a special place in my heart, but I also love the combination of Rhubarb and Strawberry.

Rhubarb recipes using strawberry Jell-O mix are actually quite common in old cook books.  Strawberry Rhubarb Streusel and Strawberry Rhubarb Jam and two of my favorite recipes that use strawberry jello mix with rhubarb.

Strawberry Jello Rhubarb Pie Ingredients

Unbaked Pie Shell (homemade or store-bought)

Diced Rhubarb

Strawberry Jell-o Mix

Flour

Sugar

Ground Cinnamon

Margarine

NOTE: The original recipe from the cook book called for oleo. Do not be afraid of recipes using oleo as it’s really a common ingredient.

What is a substitution for oleo?

Oleo is just another name for margarine. In many vintage recipes, you’ll find oleo in the ingredient list.  Margarine and oleo are the same thing.  You could also use butter instead of oleo; however, the intended texture of the finished product might be altered a bit.

  • Start with an unbaked pie crust. If you are a pie crust aficionado, go ahead and make a home-made pie crust. There’s no shame in buying a frozen crust either (I do it all the time.)

  1. Loved it!!! I learned to NOT refrigerate after it cools. I also used butter instead of margarine the second time making this; crumble turns out better with butter. Great flavor and a must for fast easy treat. Thank you
