TOTAL TIME:
Prep: 25 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling

Ingredients

  • 1-2/3 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup drained pitted tart cherries
  • 4 teaspoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 2 to 3 drops red food coloring, optional
  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the rhubarb, sugar, cherries, tapioca and food coloring if desired; stir gently and let stand for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut pastry sheet in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one half to fit a 7-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate; add filling. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry.
Bake at 400° for 40-45 minutes or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
