Award Winning Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

I had a woman give me $20 just to make her this pie. I would have done it for free, but she really wanted it. the best thing about this recipe is that it's not really very hard to make at all. I ALWAYS use fresh ingredients. So I only make this when rhubarb is in season. It's not grown in the south so as soon as I see it in the stores I start buying a bunch of it for as many pies as possible before the rhubarb season is over.
I brought this to a churn potluck and a couple were cleaning the pan out with their fingers after the pan was gone so I went ahead and brought them a pie the next week.

Ingredients

3 c
sliced strawberries
3 c
diced rhubarb
1 1/2 c
sugar
1/4 c
tapioca
1
double 9" pie crust, ready made or home made
2 Tbsp
cold butter cut into tiny pieces
1
fresh lemon, juiced

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix the rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, tapioca and lemon juice. Let sit on the counter for 30 minutes. Meanwhile lightly bake the bottom of the pie crust. 5-10 min.
2
Cool pie crust and then pour in filing. Dot with small pieces of butter. Then cover with other pie crust in whatever fashion you want.
3
Bake on 400 degrees for 40-45 min. I like to cover the outside edge of the crust with tin foil so it doesn't burn and then towards the end of the baking time I take it off to make sure it's the same color as the rest of the pie crust.
4
Let stand before serving.
