How to Make Ruby Red Grapefruit Pie


  • 1Make Crust 2 hours ahead.......or night before I prefer night before....Combine flour and salt in large bowl, add cracked butter cut in with pastry cutter or knives, gradually working butter in till mixture resembles pebbles. This should take about 6 minutes.
  • 2Lightly beat egg with fork, then add it to mixture next, add water in a Tbsp at a time working it in with your hands or a wooden spoon all the while, add in the vinegar and work in with spoon or hands..
  • 3Work till just combined if dough is tacky add a little flour to it and work it through. Then remove half the dough from the bowl place in a large plastic freezer bag (do not seal) flatten it out slightly with your rolling pin. After you have flattened out where you want it you can put it in the freezer for later use. (this is a great recipe for these ready to go pie shells)
  • 4Repeat the steps for the second one and put it in the frig over night or for 1-2 hour before you roll it out and bake in a Preheated oven of 400* 10-12 minutes. Set a side to cool
  • 5The best part (what goes inside)
    Peel and section the ruby reds set a side. Combine sugar, cornstarch, juice, salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil on medium heat cook till clear and thickened, stirring often. Remove from heat. Stir in the Gelatin. Cool until thickened. Spoon a small amount of the mixture into the pie shell. Top with ruby red. Cover with the remaining gelatin mixture. Any remaining ruby red use to decorate the top with if you like you can also decorate with a sprig of sweet mint. Let chill 4 hours or til set.
