Photo Finish Friday - Rhubarb Pie
The Bag Lady inherited this pie plate from her mother. The Bag Lady's father always teased that it was designed specifically for rhubarb - according to him, it saved time because there was no need to chop the rhubarb!
The Bag Lady was practically a teenager before she realized that most people use round pie plates. She was confused by round pie plates.... where were the special end pieces with the extra crust for the kids to fight over??
Rhubarb Pie Recipe
4 cups rhubarb, chopped into 1 inch pieces
1 2/3 cups sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional)
1 prepared 2-crust pie
Mix rhubarb, sugar, flour, salt and nutmeg and let stand while preparing pie crust.
Add rhubarb mixture to pie crust, dot with butter, cover with top crust.
Bake in 400F oven for 40 minutes.
