Baker’s TipThis pie is mildly flavored, and a bit on the sweet side. If you prefer a slightly more tart pie, reduce the sugar or add a little more rhubarb.
- Place water and oil in bowl and place in freezer for 5 minutes.
- While water and oil are in the freezer, stir together the almond meal, flours, coconut and salt in a large bowl.
- Remove the water and oil from the freezer and whisk until thick and creamy. Pour over the entire surface of the flour mixture immediately.
- Mix with a fork until it all sticks together. Mixture will be soft and oily.
- Put mixture into pie pan and pat into place with a plastic spatula until the bottom and sides of the pan are evenly covered.
- Bake 5 minutes at 400° to set the crust.
- Place cut rhubarb in the pre-set pie crust.
- Stir together sugar, flours, and nutmeg until mixed. Add eggs; beat until smooth. Add butter and beat again until smooth.
- Pour mixture evenly over the rhubarb.
- Bake at 450° for 10 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350° and continue baking for 30 more minutes. A knife inser ted into the center of the pie will come out clean when done.
