This is one of our favorite pies. I usually make my own pie crust, but refrigerated pie crust is fine. Recipe is from Family Circle.
- Combine 1 cup sugar with cornstarch; set aside.
- Heat oven to 375 degrees.
- Fit one of the pie crusts into a 9-inch pie plate.
- Set aside.
- In large bowl, toss rhubarb, strawberries, sugar-cornstarch mixture and lemon juice.
- Let stand 5 minutes.
- Pour strawberry mixture into crust-lined pie dish, leveling slightly.
- Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut remaining crust into 1-inch strips.
- Interweave into a lattice pattern.
- Crimp strip edges with bottom crust to seal.
- Brush crust with milk, then sprinkle with sugar.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 50 minutes, covering edge of pie with foil if browning too quickly.
- Cool to room temperature.
- Serve slightly warm with ice cream, if desired.
I went strawberry picking and got the tiny sweet ones and left most of them whole. My neighbor gave me some of his rhubarb and I used a Pillsbury pie crust. This was delicious-wonderfully tart, tangy and sweet. My daughter said it tasted like summer. Perfect amount of cornstarch-not too runny. Allow it to set until room temp after baking is a must. No ice cream needed. Will be my go to recipe during strawberry season. Thanks Lainey.
I made this pie and served it to family and friends. This pie had rave reviews. I will make it over and over again.
I had strawberries and I had rhubarb - this fit the ticket! I made my own crust using Shake-A-Pie Crust. I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup and used a combination of sugar and Splenda. My 9 inch pie plate seemed to work perfectly and I baked it about 45 minutes since the filling was bubbling. Let cool to room temperature for 4 hours before cutting (that was the hard part!). The filling was a little on the runny side, but the pie held its shape very nicely so it wasn't an issue - I'd take this to a picnic in a heartbeat! It tasted wonderful and is very beautiful. I sprinkled mine with turbinado sugar after brushing with milk. Made for ZWT4.
