Spring and Fall Pie Recipe

Spring and Fall Pie Recipe

Every spring, I have a good crop of rhubarb in my garden, and one of my favorite ways to use it is in this pie. I adapted this version from a recipe I received from our county Extension service.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb, thawed and drained
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, halved
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped peeled tart apples
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine sugar and flour; stir in rhubarb, cranberries and apples. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; add filling.
  • 2. Cover with a lattice crust; seal and flute edges. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° bake 40 minutes longer or until filling is bubbly. Cover edges loosely with foil to prevent overbrowning if necessary. 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.
