#3927 - Rhubarb Meringue Pie

(by Shirley McNevich)

3 egg yolks
3 egg whites
1 - 9" unbaked pie crust dough
3 cups chopped rhubarb
1 cup white sugar
1 cup Half 'n Half
2 TBSP flour
a pinch of salt
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar

Spray a 9" pie plate with Pam, insert the pie dough, flute the edges and spray the inside of the pie dough with Pam. Spread the rhubarb pieces evenly in the pie dough. In a bowl add 1 cup white sugar, the Half 'n Half, flour, salt and egg yolks--beat with a whisk until smooth. Pour the egg yolk mixture evenly over the rhubarb. Cover the edges of the pie dough with foil. Bake at 350 degrees 30 minutes, remove the foil and bake 20-30 minutes longer or until pie crust is browned and filling is set. Remove from oven but DO NOT turn the oven off. In a mixer add the egg whites--beat until stiff. Slowly add the 1/4 cup white sugar and cream of tartar while beating until you have a fluffy meringue. Spread the meringue over the top of the pie, use your wet finger to make any designs in the meringue that you wish and return the pie to the oven for 8-10 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned. Cool completely.
