I love the times in life when I can combine mind, body, and spirit in one project. Baking, and cooking in general, gives me that experience.
Last month as I was clearing the garden out for the winter I came across a plethora of rhubarb. What to do? Bake a pie!

How to Make Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut one of the two pie crusts into strips to basketweave the top of your pie.
  2. Mix the filling ingredients and let sit for 20 minutes so that the flour has time to naturally thicken the ingredients; a tip from my great grandmother who never used tapioca as a thickener.
  3. Pour filling into pie plate that has the bottom crust put in it. I used a nine inch pie pan. Dot the top with small butter knobs. Using the strips basket weave the top of pie.
  4. Mix the egg and milk and brush over the strips on top of pie. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes then turn the heat down to 350 for another 30-35 minutes. You can put foil around the outside crust if it begins to brown too much.
