Rhubarb pie is my favorite pie.
It's my favorite dessert.
And don't you dare throw strawberries in there because then it will immediately become my least favorite dessert.
I think what makes it that much more exciting is that you can only get rhubarb for a short time...you can have an apple pie literally any time of year. But trying to find rhubarb outside of the spring is like trying to find a mystical unicorn. So quickly find yourself some rhubarb and savor each sweet tangy bite.
1 pie shell, top and bottom
4 cups rhubarb
1 cup sugar (you can experiment with less too)
1/3 cup flour
a pinch of salt
1 green apple, chopped
Wash and chop rhubarb into small pieces. In a bowl combine rhubarb, sugar, flour, salt and green apple. Stir and let sit for 30 minutes. Add to pie shell and bake at 400 for 50 - 55 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
