Rhubarb, Rose & Pistachios Pie

If there is indeed a fruit that I look forward to every year, it’s rhubarb! These long stem pink and sour really make me hooked and I think I could feed myself exclusively with rhubarb pie for 1 month lol

If my favorite pie is undoubtedly the Alsatian rhubarb meringue pie (if you have not yet tested, do not wait !!), I like to occasionally put some novelty and originality my kitchen. So I tried this time to marry rhubarb with pistachio and rose to a very elegant, smooth and pastel colored pie.

Tarte à la rhubarbe

For a more “graphic”  presentation, I chose to have my rhubarb rod-shaped rather than cut into small pieces; plus it’s faster ^^ And to keep the pretty pink color of the stems is easy: just do not peel the rhubarb! I can already hear you behind the screen “but what! is going to be stringy” Well no! Just follow two tips: choose thin rods (not more than 0.5 inch thick) and candy the rhubarb in sugar. Resulting in a very tender, not stringy rhubarb !!

Rhubarb, Rose & Pistachios Pie

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Servings: 6


For the dough

  • 1 1/4 cups flour 125 g
  • 1/4 cup butter 60 g
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. sugar 30 g
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  • 1 pinch salt

For the rhubarb

  • 12 thin rhubarb stalks
  • 1/4 cup sugar 50 g
  • 1/2 tsp. rose extract

For the pistachio cream

  • 1/5 cup cup almond powdered, 50 g
  • 1/3 cup cup blanched pistachios 50 g
  • 1/3 cup cup sugar 60 g
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter melted, 25 g
  • 1 pinch salt

For decoration

  • crushed pistachios
  • dried rose petals


The dough

  • In a bowl, whisk the sugar with the egg yolks until frothy and foamy. Add the water.
  • Put the flour in a large bowl and add the cold butter. Sand, ie crush the flour with the butter between your fingers to get a sandy texture.
  • Form a well and pour the previous batter, mix quickly. Form a ball, cover with plastic wrap and keep refrigerated.


  • Rinse the rhubarb stalks and cut off the ends. Cut each stalk in sections of the width of your mold (For a round mold, made either a rose or cut sections to cover your mold width). Cut each section in half horizontally.
  • Bring to boil 2 cups of water with the sugar and rose extract and poach the rhubarb for 3 minutes.
  • Remove the rhubarb with a slotted spoon and let drain. Reduce the syrup of about 2/3.

Pistachio cream

  • Mix pistachios in powder and mix all the ingredients to make a thick paste.
  • Roll out the dough and place in your buttered mold. Pour the pistachio cream over the dough and smooth before placing rhubarb sections in two layers.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350°F.
  • At the exit of the oven, brush with syrup and leave to cool. Sprinkle with crushed pistachios and rose petals before serving.

  1. This tart is stunning!

    Also, I’ve never even thought to peel rhubarb – I didn’t know that was a thing! The color with the peel on is so lovely – I’d be so sad to lose it.

  2. Wonderful recipe! I added an infusion of raspberry leaves in a tea ball to the rhubarb-rose syrup while it boiled. Heavenly!
