Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie created by Izy Hossack

An excellent pie to make when strawberries and rhubarb are at their peak. This delicious fruit-filled pie is a recipe from Canadian Living magazine, May 1993. You can substitute a plain top crust instead of the lattice top if you like; brush with the egg glaze and cut steam vents. Tip: Keep a clear plastic quilt ruler with your baking and cooking supplies to measure pastry strips for lattice pies, to measure squares or strips of dough, pastry, or pasta, or as a guide for cutting squares evenly.

ingredients

directions

  • In a bowl, combine rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and cinnamon.
  • On lightly floured surface, roll out half of the pastry and line a nine-inch pie plate.
  • Spoon in filling.
  • Roll out pastry for top crust; using pastry wheel or knife, cut into 1-inch wide strips.
  • Brush pastry rim with some of the beaten egg.
  • Gently weave strips over the pie to form lattice; trim and flute the edge.
  • Brush lattice with beaten egg. Sprinkle top with sugar if using.
  • Bake on a baking sheet with sides in a 425 degree Fahrenheit oven for 15 minutes. Tip: If you do not have a cookie sheet handy, make a drip catcher out of foil paper, larger than the bottom of the pie plate, and place it under the pie plate and up the sides loosely.
  • Reduce heat to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 50 to 60 minutes longer or until rhubarb is tender, filling thickened, and the crust is golden.
  • Let stand for 15 to 20 minutes before cutting.

    Have now made this recipe four times in the last two years and it has been spot on every time! The latest pie was in a deep dish pie plate so I added a bit more fruit(5c. Rhubarb and 3c. Strawberries altogether) and 2 teaspoons more cornstarch. Beautiful and delicious!! Made this recipe as posted except I added the extra tablespoon of cornstarch as recommended by some. Came out perfect-juicy but not too runny. Even though I wasn't thrilled about putting cinnamon in mine, I like to try a recipe as written before I start tweaking, so in it went. I have to say that I was not unhappy with the result! I put my pie in a deep dish pie plate and did not have any issues with it running over even though I used a sheet pan underneath while baking. Love rhubarb and am loving this pie! Thanks for sharing!

    This is a terrible recipe. I don't know how it got a five star rating. There is way too much filling for one pie. So I thought ok, I'll make 2 pies. It still boiled over on the cooking sheet. I let it cool a bit, then couldn't take the pie plate off the sheet. Now I have to clean the burnt filling off 2 cooking sheets and I took the pies out after 40 minutes. The recipe says to bake between 50-60!!! Really!? There was smoke all over my kitchen.
