I wish I knew the name of the good lady who lost her Rhubarb Pie recipe in the Frigidaire Flair stove that we would eventually buy from a junk shop in the city. I love the stove; I love the recipe. Probably I'd have been good friends with the housewife who wrote down this recipe, too. :)
  • 2 cups rhubarb, cut in ½" pieces
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbs flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 Tbs unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • ½ cup raisins, cut in half
  • Enough pie pastry for two crusts
  1. Mix sugar and flour in a big bowl, then stir in rhubarb pieces.
  2. Beat egg well, and then add to rhubarb mixture. Mix well.
  3. Pour rhubarb mixture into pie pastry, and dot with butter pieces.
  4. Sprinkle halved raisins on top.
  5. Put on top pastry, crimp, slash, and brush milk on top. Sprinkle with sugar.
  6. Bake in 400 degree oven for 45 minutes or until hot and bubbly, and golden brown.
  7. Really terrific served hot, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Dandy served cold, too. Room-temperature it is still delicious.
