A very simple yet delicious recipe for rhubarb pie I got from my mother many years ago.
- Sift flour and sugar together.
- Add egg and beat thoroughly.
- Add rhubarb.
- Pour in crust.
- Add top crust.
- Make a slit on top.
- Bake in very hot oven (425 degrees) for 10 minutes then reduce temperature to moderate 350 degrees and bake 35 minutes longer.
This pie was great! I've never made a rhubarb pie before but my mom gave me some from her garden so I figured I'd give it a try. I've NEVER seen or heard of adding an egg to the inside of a fruit pie before....I was a bit leary....but in the egg went. I made two other changes: I added approx. 2 cups sliced strawberries & put an extra tbsp of flour....the pie turned out wonderful! I've made it twice since and given the recipe to a neighbour who's husband happened to be at my house the night I first made it....he loved it and has been bugging her to make it ever since!! Thank you so much for this recipe!
We loved this recipe. The taste was wonderful. The only thing wrong was it was a bit on the "small" side (I like more filling, so next time I might add a wee bit more) HOWEVER it was very good. My husband said this is the recipe to keep!
Just like my Mom made.I used a bit less sugar to have it a little tart.
