  • Prepare dough for a double pie crust as directed on package and set aside.
  • Clean rhubarb stalks, removing leaves and dirt. Chop rhubarb stalks into fine pieces.

  • Allow mixture to remain at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Pour ingredients into the prepared pie crust. Add top crust and seal edges by hand pinching.
  • Cut small slits or holes in surface of top crust to allow steam to be released.
  • Use a pie crust protector or foil to keep edges from darkening excessively or burning, removing to brown lightly for the last 10 minutes of baking.
  • Preheat oven to 400º F, and when ready, bake for 45 minutes or slightly longer, if necessary. Pie filling should be bubbling when the pie is ready to be removed from oven.
