Don't bother with the butter; you don't need it at all. And do NOT--as some other reviewers have suggested--mix up the flour/sugar mixture with the fruit before adding the fruit to the pie shell...

make sure you DISCARD all of the leaf portion of the plant!!! The leaves of rhubarb are POISONOUS. Seriously. Just use the stalk portion. Other than that, its a fantastic recipe!!
