    I'm my family's resident pie expert.

    Now, what classifies your contest as a "pie" contest? Does it have to have a pie crust? Because there are one-crust and two-crust pies, and also crustless pies or cobblers.

    That being said, I have a recipe that people request every time I get invited to any pot-luck, so, here you go.

    Pie crusts are NOT easy to make, so if you need any tips, let me know.

    Rhubarb and Apple Deep Dish Pie

    Ingredients:

    PASTRY:

    1 1/2 cups all-purpose (unsifted) flour
    1 tablesp sugar
    1/2 cup butter or margarine
    1 large egg (beaten)
    1 tablesp apple cider vinegar

    FILLING:

    2 lbs Rhubarb stalks
    4 large granny smith apples
    1 1/4 cups sugar
    1/4 cup corn starch
    1 teasp ground cinnamon
    2 tablesp buter or margarine
    1 tablesp lemon juice

    Procedure:

    Pastry:

    Mix flour and sugar. Cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

    Beat egg. Add water to egg until mixture is 1/3 cup. Stir in vinegar.

    Add 4 tablespoons egg mixture to flour mixture. Mix lightly with a fork until pastry holds together. Refrigerate leftover egg mixture. Chill pastry 1 hour (minimum)

    Heat oven to 400 F. On floured surface, roll pastry dough to a 16 by 14 inch oval. Loosen pastry and carefully fold into quarters. Place into a 10 by 8 by 2.5 inch oval deep dish baking dish. Unfold and press into pan. Trim pastry 1 inch beyond rim of dish. Brush pastry with some of the leftover egg mixture. Spoon in the filling with juices, mounding in the center. Bring pastry up over the mound of filling, forming gathers or pleats, leaving the center open. Brush pastry with egg mixture.

    Place pie on a rimmed baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake pie 25 minutes (at 400 F). Then lower oven to 350 F. Cover top of pie with a piece of aluminum foil. Continue baking for 25 to 35 minutes or until juices bubble in the center. Cool on wire rack.

    Filling:

    Trim and cut rhubarb into 1 inch lengths. Peel, core and cut each apple into 12 wedges.

    In a 2 quart saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon until well blended. Stir in apples, butter and lemon juice. Let stand 5 minutes or until sugar begins to dissolve. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until apples soften slightly and sauce thickens and bubbles. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in rhubarb. Cool to room temp. Add to pastry.

    Since we ARE talking about Dr. Naysay here, I've changed filling ingredients a bit. What do you think, Sticky?
