I have made a lot of pies over the years and if you like sweet this is your pie. We prefer a little more tart so I increased the amount of rhubarb, the pie is in the oven now. The recipe instructions to put the sugar and the flour top and bottom is good. I always sprinkle a pinch of salt on a pie and always little chunks of butter on top. Pie is not a low cal desert so one must make choices. I aways brush the edge of my crust with cream before I put the lid on and brush the top of the pie with cream and sprinkle a very generous amount of white sugar to give the pie a glorious appearance. I also watch the baking and cover my pie with aluminum foil when it is the perfect color, this is usually the last 10 minutes of baking. All this being said, I made the pie for company following the exact directions and they loved it, but hubby thought is too sweet. The adjusted amount of rhubarb (five cups) was perfect, a little tart and slightly runny.
