Sunset's Bluebarb Pie Ice Cream Sundae

October 23, 2012

Sunset describes the Bluebarb Pie best: Store-bought vanilla ice cream swirled with sweet-tart rhubarb compote, plus shortbread “crust” crumbles, gives new meaning to pie a la mode.

My homely end-of-season rhubarb was the starting point for one of the best garden desserts I’ve made this season. I used frozen blueberries, but marionberries  or your favorite berry would also do well.

My son and his girlfriend, Sarah joined us for dinner over the weekend. We all agreed the bluebarb pie was a luscious dessert with incredible flavor and textural contrasts. I used vanilla bean ice cream and served the blueberry compote very warm.
