This is a twist on the usual Rhubarb pie but does not have the tangy bite. It is more like a custard type pie. Delicious. The pie crust recipe is my mothers recipe and it makes 5 single crusts. I usually double this and freeze dough balls in ziplock bags- two per bag to pull out, let thaw to room temperature and then roll out and use.

How to Make French Vanilla Rhubarb Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Pie Crust:
    Blend flour, sugar and salt. Cut in shortening until particles are the size of peas. Beat egg, blend in vinegar and water. Sprinkle over flour, a TBS at a time, tossing with fork to mix together. Gather dough together in 5 balls. Wrap in waxed paper and chill. Freeze the ones you won't be using in ziplock bags. And roll out the one for the pie on a lightly floured surface.

    Filling: Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Pour into a 9" pie shell. Dot the top with 2 TB butter. Put a pastry top crust on and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400 degree for 45 minutes.
