RHUBARD CRUNCH PIE

This recipe is from an old community cookbook from Indiana.

1 1/4 cups sugar
6 tbsps flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
4 cups diced rhubarb
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
2 tbsps butter

Sift sugar with flour, salt, and cinnamon. Combine with rhubarb, tossing lightly to coat all the rhubarb. Pour into the pastry shell. Dot with butter.

Crunch Topping:

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup butter

Blend brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over rhubarb. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Lower oven temperature to 375 degrees and bake for 40 minutes longer or until the rhubarb is tender and the topping is golden.
