Rhubarb Pie with Whole Wheat Crust

Submitted by: LIVINGDEAD_GIRL

Introduction

Looking for a way to have my cake and eat it to, or in this case pie. May not be the healthiest out there but am only using a top crust and have cut some of the sugar out. You could probably cut the sugar down to half a cup, if you like the tart flavor. I'm not a fan of it and was afraid that without strawberries that this pie would be tart and was pleasantly surprised, it's not tart at all!
Next time I make pie crust, I am going to start cutting back the butter to see how it turn out, that is really where all the calories and fat lay.

Ingredients

    Crust:
    1/2 C all purpose flour
    1/2 C whole wheat flour
    1 stick butter cut into small cubes, chilled
    1/2 T sugar
    1/2 t salt
    3-4 T water

    Filling:
    5 C rhubarb, chopped
    3/4 C sugar
    1/3 C all purpose flour

Tips

I like to brush the crust with a little egg white and sprinkle a little sugar over it.


Directions

Preheat oven to 375

Chop up the rhubarb. In a bowl combine the rhubarb, sugar and flour, let stand for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile make the crust, you can do this in a food processor or bowl, I use a food processor. Dissolve the salt and sugar in the water and chill. Combine the flours and cut in the butter. Slowly add in the water until dough comes together. Roll out on a floured surface to 1/8 of an inch.

Pour pie filling in a pie dish, cover with crust and crimp. Cut in a few slits to let steam out.

Cook for 50 minutes.
