Frog Hair Pie


1 1/4 cups rhubarb, sliced into 1/2" pieces
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoons milk


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Combine the rhubarb, sugar. 1/4 cup water and the cornstarch in a large bowl .Stir to dissolve the sugar. Allow to stand for 10 minutes. Pour the mixture in a heavy saucepan and cook over medium heat until thickened. Stir often. Transfer the cooked mixture to a 8-inch square baking dish and set aside.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon in a bowl. Cut in the softened butter with a fork until moistened. Set aside.

Beat together the egg and milk until frothy, and add it to the flour mixture while stirring just enough to moisten. Drop the topping onto the rhubarb mixture creating 6 mounds. Bake for 20-25 minutes until topping is browned.


Funny name, but it makes a great pie!
