GRANDMA WILSON'S ELEGANT RHUBARB PIE

This is a recipe from my mother-in-law who is in her 80s.

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tbsps flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsps melted butter or margarine
1 egg, slightly beaten
3 cups rhubarb, cut into 1-inch pieces
Pastry for a two crust 9" pie

Cream together sugar, flour, salt, butter and egg. Spread rhubarb in the bottom of a pastry lined 9-inch pie pan. Spread the sugar mixture over the rhubarb and cover with a top pastry. Make slashes in crust for air to escape. Pinch edges together securely. Bake at 450 degrees for 45 minutes.
