I just found a lovely bunch of rhubarb at my local health food market and had to get some. I really like this sort of pie, it's always yummy a la cart or with some whipped topping. I used my Easy Spelt Pie Crust for this recipe.

    cane sugar
  • 3/4 c
    xylitol

How to Make Rhubarb Apple Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the flour, salt, sugar and xylitol. You can also use all sugar here if you don't have xylitol.
  2. Cut up the fruit and put it into a large bowl and add the flour mixture.
  3. Let it sit for 20 minutes.
    Preheat your oven at this point to 400'F.
  4. Make your pie crust. I used my Easy Spelt Pie Crust. It makes 2-9" pie shells.
  5. Put the bottom pie crust into your pie dish. Add the fruit and dot with the vegan margarine and cover with the top crust. I fluted and decorated mine with a flower and some leaves. I like using up the remnants of pie crust I have. Brush the pie with some beaten egg and sprinkle with a little sugar. This will make the crust crispy. Cut steam holes in the top crust.
  6. Put the pie on a cookie sheet.
    Bake the pie for 15 minutes at 400'F, then turn the heat down to 350'F and bake for an additional 35-40 minutes. At this point check the edges, if they're getting brown cover the edges with an aluminum foil protector or make your own. I have a metal one that just fits on top of a 9" pie perfectly.
  7. When the pie is done, it should be bubbling when you remove it from the oven. If you aren't sure if it's done, insert a knife into one of the steam holes, the fruit should be soft.
  8. Let it cool on a rack for a 15 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.
  9. Enjoy!
