Rhubarb Pie Recipe

I always remember rhubarb pie being too tart for my taste, so I started making adjustments until I came up with this recipe. Everyone who has tried it has told me they like it very much.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + standing Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 cups diced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Additional sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients; let stand for 30 minutes.
  • 2. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; trim even with edge of plate. Pour filling into crust; dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges; cut slits in top. Brush milk over pastry; sprinkle with sugar. Cover edges loosely with foil.
  • 3. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. 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.
