Strawberry Rhubarb Custard Pie
This was my Grandmothers recipe, we all love it! You can adjust the sweetness by the amount of strawberries you add. You will need 3 cups of fruit in total, but if you want a more tart pie, use more rhubarb than strawberries. I have posted this with exactly 1/2 and 1/2.
- Ready In:
- 1hr 5mins
- 1 1⁄2 cups rhubarb, cut in 1 " pieces
- 1 1⁄2 cups sliced strawberries
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 uncooked pie shell
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Place rhubarb in a bowl and cover with boiling water for about 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, with a mixer, mix sugar, egg, butter and flour until smooth.
- Strain rhubarb well.
- With wooden spoon, add strawberries and rhubarb to batter and mix.
- Pour into uncooked pie shell.
- Mix topping ingredients with a fork, and sprinkle over uncooked pie.
- Bake at 375 for 50 minutes or until set.
- Top with whipped cream if desired.
MY PRIVATE NOTES

Love it! Love it! Love it! Who knew pies could be this simple? I've always shied away from making pies because the process always seemed so daunting. No more! This is the first pie i ever made and since the first one, I've made it 7 more times given rhubarb is in season. My husband can't get enough of it. It's that good! The only modifications I've made to suit my personal taste is I've cut the sugar in half since the strawberries this season have been fairly sweet and I add 1 tsp of vanilla. Not sure if vanilla is really necessary...it's more habit than anything else. I once used frozen rhubarb and had to add an extra tablespoon of flour to the batter to combat the extra moisture. But other than that, it comes out perfect everytime! I can't wait to try other fillings in the future. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe.Reply
I also skipped out on the crust and added 1/4 cup oatmeal to the topping. My boyfriend said it is one the best desserts I've ever made! He made me promise to make more immediately :)<br/>I used palm sugar instead of sugar, as I have blood sugar sensitivities. Followed the recipe exactly outside of that.2Reply
