Strawberry Rhubarb Pie


Ever since I was a little kid rhubarb has been delishhh to me. Every time I eat it, it reminds me of being a little kid running to my grandmother’s garden with a little bowl of sugar in my hand and picking up the rhubarb from the ground dipping it in my little bowl of sugar and just sitting there eating it. I know it was tart but so good, and such great memories. But if you decided to do this do not eat the leaves they are toxic, but rhubarb itself is a good laxative and also a good source of vitamin C.

Today I don’t have rhubarb growing in my garden, I actually don’t have any vegetables growing in my garden, maybe some day, but when you live in the city it is hard to have a vegetable garden.

So the other day when I went to the store I saw they had a bunch of rhubarb and I just had to get some. Usually I make rhubarb sauce which I will share with you at a later time but today I decided to make this amazing Strawberry Rhubarb Pie which is originally from Cindy Crawford and I got it on the Oprah website. The strawberries make it pretty sweet so do not worry about tartness, this pie is amazing. But you do have to like rhubarb too.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Adapted from:

Make 2 Pie Crusts. One for the bottom and one for the top. You can find my recipe here. I decided to make mine today with whole wheat flour just for fun.

1 ¼ cups plus 2 tbsp sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp cinnamon
3 cups halved strawberries
2 cups thinly sliced rhubarb
2 tbsp butter, cut up
2 tsp milk

Preheat oven to 400 F. Make the crust and let just the bottom crust bake for 10 minutes.

Then in a separate bowl start the filling, mix sugar, flour, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add fruit, stirring to coat.

Fill crust with filling. Scatter butter on the top. Add top crust. If you are covering the whole pie just make sure you have it open in the middle for ventilation. Brush with milk and sprinkle sugar on top. Bake for 50 minutes. You can cover with tinfoil if cooking too fast.

Allow to cool 1 hour before serving.

    This is the first year I’ve wanted to try rhubarb again. Maybe because I’m more “mature”!So I planted some. But I may have to buy some to try your recipe. Sounds yummy!

      Cathy, Rhubarb is a tricky one, you either like it or now. Let me know if there is a trick to growing it in your back yard. I would like to someday have it in my yard.

    I thought I did not like rhubarb, but yesterday I made for my daughter strawberry – rhubarb crumble, with ingredients similar to yours. Unfortunately, my little 2 years old monster does not want to eat this, as I I hate to throw away the food, I eat, I eat, I eat and it is quite good actually. Have a good day!

      Krissy, really? You haven’t had rhubark yet? It is one of my favorites, but not everyone likes it. So you have to tell me what you think and what you do with it. But it is really easy to work with.

    I love rhubarb but am sort of a purist when it comes to the pies. I don’t like to mix other fruit in with it.
    Your pie looks lovely though!

    • Delishhh replied: — May 28th, 2010 @ 6:46 pm

      Barbara, I love rhubarb too. So when you make rhubarb pie you just use more sugar, or you just like it tart? I wish i could just use rhubarb but it makes it really tart and most people don’t like it and then i end up putting in more sugar than i want, so this was a great combination. Not a lot of sugar since the strawberries make it sweeter. But i am curious what you do.

    Generally, your certification will lapse after a period of 24 months
    without completing any paid healthcare work. Nursing aides are also
    given necessary time to focus better on their jobs and responsibilities through these training programs.
    Compare to other education programs, CNA training lasts quite shortly – from 6-12 weeks.

    i am certain peahces would work, terri. i think i would substitute lemon juice/rind for the orange, though. and the cooking time might be a bit less as peahces are softer than the rhubarb. let me know if you need a taste-tester;))
