Ingredients
  1. 1 package piecrust mix
  2. 1 ½ pounds rhubarb
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 1 ¾ cups sugar
  5. 4 tablespoons flour
  6. ¼ teaspoon mace
  7. Dash of salt
  8. ¼ cup orange juice
  9. 1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine
Instructions
  1. Prepare piecrust mix, following label directions. Roll out half to a 12-inch round on a lightly floured pastry cloth or board; fit into a 9-inch pie plate; trim overhang to ½ inch.
  2. Wash rhubarb; trim ends; cut rhubarb into 1-inch pieces. (There should be about 4 cups)
  3. Beat eggs slightly in a large bowl; blend in sugar, flour, mace, salt and orange juice; stir in rhubarb to coat pieces well. Spoon into prepared pastry shell.
  4. Roll out remaining pastry to a rectangle, about 12x4; trim edges even with a pastry wheel or knife, then cut pastry lengthwise into 4 one-inch-wide strips. Holding the ends of each strip, one at a time, twist lightly into a spiral and lay over filling, spoke fashion, crossing in center of top. Trim overhang to ½ inch; turn under with bottom crust, flush with rim; flute edge. Set pie on a cookie sheet to catch any juices; brush pastry topping lightly with melted butter or margarine.
  5. Bake in hot oven (425°) 50 minutes, or until pastry is golden and juices bubble up. Cool completely on a wire rack, then cut between "spokes" into wedges so each serving will have a pastry strip running down middle.
