How to Make Rhubarb's pie

HideShow Media
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
The crust:
Before measuring the flour, stir it to leaven with air and then measure out 2 cups.
Combine together flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl and mix with a fork.Add margarine into the flour
Stop as soon as the sheen of the margarine disappears and the mixture turns into a coarse pieces.Sprinkle water mixing and tossing it with the fork.When it begins to come together, gather the dough, press it into a ball and then pull it apart; if it crumbles in your hands, it needs more water.
Add more water, as needed.Work dough into two slightly unequal balls, the larger one for the bottom crust and the smaller one for the top.Flatten the larger ball. Dust it with flour and roll the dough, starting from the center and moving toward the edges.Take a knife or a thin spatula and quickly work its edges between the crust and the counter top.
Lift the dough to the side; dust the dough and counter top with flour. Roll again until the diameter is an inch or 2 larger than that of the pie pan.Roll the crust onto the pin and then unroll the crust into a 9-inch pie pan and press it into place. Place in the freezer.Make the filling: in a large bowl, blend the rhubarb, sugar, flour and cinnamon. Pour into the sauce pan and reduce to half.Fill in the crust-lined pie pan. Roll out the top crust. Dab the rim of the bottom crust with water to create glue. Then place the top crust over the rhubarb; trim, seal and cut several vents. Bake for 15 minutes; reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and bake 25 to 30 minutes more, or until a bit of pink juice bubbles from the vents in the crust.
