Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

21 Jun

So, I made strawberry rhubarb pie a few days ago. With homemade crust. No big deal.

  • 1 package fresh strawberries
  • 2 stalks fresh rhubarb
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 Tbs cornstarch
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1 unbaked pie crust

So here’s what you do. Slice your rhubarb and toss it in a bowl…

…along with your strawberries. make sure to slice everything fairly thin.

Then toss your sugar and cornstarch (I used too much sugar and too little cornstarch, here) into your bowl…

…and mix it up well. Don’t beat it, just incorporate everything.

Roll out your piecrust (if you’re using homemade).

Then, pick it up and place it gently in your pie pan, cutting the excess around the rim of the pan. I, however, couldn’t pick up the thing without it tearing, so I ended up piecing it into the piepan and pressing it with my fingers. Not as pretty, but it works just as well.

Then pour your filling into your prepared crust.

If you want, you can even pour some extra sugar over it. If you want.

And then bake it! I put mine in for about half an hour at 350, and it worked pretty well. Just make sure your pie crust turns golden brown, and you have strawberry rhubarb pie!

Just a thought… make sure you let it cool completely before serving. This would also be really good with French vanilla ice cream, or maybe vanilla bean. Yummy!
