Ingredients

Classic Pie Dough:
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons coarse sugar
Filling:
  • 4 cups chopped (1-inch/2.5 cm pieces) rhubarb

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

On lightly floured surface, roll out half of the pastry to generous 1/8-inch (3 mm) thickness; fit into 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate. Trim to leave 3/4-inch (2 cm) overhang. Scrape in filling; dot with butter.

Roll out remaining pastry. Whisk egg yolk with 2 tsp water; brush some over pastry rim. Fit pastry over filling; trim to leave 3/4-inch (2 cm) overhang. Fold overhang under bottom pastry rim; seal and flute edge. Brush top with remaining egg wash; sprinkle with sugar. Cut steam vents in top.

Bake on baking sheet in bottom third of 425°F (220°C) oven for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F (180°C); bake until bubbly and bottom is golden, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool on rack.
