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
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. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°. For filling, in a large bowl, combine rhubarb, apples, pineapple, honey and lemon juice. Combine sugar and flour; add to rhubarb mixture.
On a lightly floured surface, roll 1 disk of dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim crust even with rim. Add filling; dot with butter. Roll out remaining dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edge. Cut slits in top.
Bake until crust is golden brown and the apples are tender, about 1-1/4 hours.
Granny’s pie is well worth the calories on special occasions, but double-crust pies are almost always super rich. If you’re looking for a lighter version, skip the top crust and add just a little bit of your favorite streusel topping instead.
If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
