Granny's Rhubarb Pie Recipe

Granny's Rhubarb Pie Recipe

This recipe originated with my grandmother, who baked many different rhubarb desserts. This was always a favorite of mine.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 5 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • FILLING:
  • 3 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb (1/2-inch pieces)
  • 2 cups sliced peeled tart apples
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine the egg, water and vinegar; stir into flour mixture until a ball forms.
  • 2. Divide dough in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one portion; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim pastry even with edge.
  • 3. In a large bowl, combine the rhubarb, apples, pineapple, honey and lemon juice. Combine sugar and flour; add to rhubarb mixture. Pour into crust. Dot with butter.
  • 4. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry. Bake at 350° for 1-1/4 hours or until the pastry is golden brown and the apples are tender. Yield: 6-8 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.
