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

  • 1Cut one of the two pie crusts into strips to basketweave the top of your pie.
  • 2Mix 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.
  • 3Pour 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.
  • 4Mix 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.
