Munchie Mondays…Rhubarb Pie

Spring has sprung and the Rhubarb is nearly ready, one of my favorite ways to eat it is in pie…Pie is good…here is a fool proof recipe for a delicious treat…

Fresh Rhubarb Pie:

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups chopped rhubarb
  • 1 1/3 cups white sugar
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie ( I use the recipe in the Tenderflake shortening box, the best recipe for pastry ever!!)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Combine sugar and flour. Sprinkle 1/4 of it over pastry in pie plate. Heap rhubarb over this mixture. Sprinkle with remaining sugar and flour. Dot with small pieces of butter. Cover with top crust.
  3. 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.
  4. Serve warm or cold and add whipped cream or vanilla ice cream…
