This pie is fairly sweet but is also quite tangy since rhubarb is its main ingredient. It is best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients[edit]

Procedure[edit]

Crust[edit]

  1. Prepare the flaky pie crust and refrigerate while preparing the rhubarb.

Filling[edit]

  1. Clean and trim the rhubarb stalks.
  2. Cut the stalks into 1/2 inch to 1 inch (1.25 to 2.5cm) sections.
  3. Add sugar, cornstarch or tapioca, and salt.
  4. Stir until rhubarb is evenly coated with dry ingredients.

Forming and cooking the pie[edit]

  1. Follow the instructions in the flaky pie crust recipe.

Place pie on lowest rack in oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and continue baking for 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm or cold.

Notes, tips and variations[edit]

  • If cornstarch is used as the thickener, the pie requires a longer cooling time before the filling is gelled.
  • Another variation is to use a whole egg in the mix.
