The Queen’s Best Piecrust or pie crust recipe of your choice.
5 cups evenly sliced rhubarb about 1/3 inch thick
1–1/4 cups sugar
3 tablespoons tapioca, potato or corn starch
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon Rain’s Choice ground Vanilla Bean Powder
1–1/2 tablespoons butter
Prepare pie crust and chill for at least 1/2 hour before making the filling.
Mix rhubarb and all other filling ingredients except for butter in a large mixing bowl and stir until well blended.
Roll out the bottom pie crust and press into pan. Add the rhubarb blend and dot the top of the rhubarb mix with small pieces of butter.
Roll the top pie crust, place over the pie filling, and crimp into place. Cut steam vents around the pie.
With a pastry brush or your fingers, lightly wet the top of the crust then sprinkle sugar over the pie. Chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes before placing in oven.
While pie is chilling, heat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Place pie on a baking sheet to catch spills. Bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees, then lower the heat to 350 degrees. The pie will need about 25 more minutes. If the edges of the crust get too brown, cover lightly with aluminum foil. The pie will be ready when the fruit is soft and juices begin to bubble up.
Cool pie on a cooling rack. Serve warm plain or with ice cream or whipped cream
