Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Michael at Designs by Gollum is hosting Foodie Friday. This is my first time to join in. Please stop over and see her blog and others who have wonderful recipes.
I love it when you can find fresh strawberries and they're two for one at the store. I had company last week and decided to make a strawberry/rhubarb pie and a buttermilk pie. I was fortunate not to have a trainwreck this time.

Here are a few that were left over. These are the ones I cut up and mixed with a small amount of rhubarb. Just enough to make it interesting but not too tart.


I always sprinkle a little cinnamon and sugar on top of the crust.



The finished product looks and tastes so good! Recipe below.


1 1/2 quarts of strawberries
2 Tlbs. of chopped rhubarb
3 Tlbs. of tapioca
3/4 c. sugar
dash of cinnamon
2 pie crusts

Make slits in crusts and sprinkle additional sugar and cinnamon on top if desired.
Bake at 400 1 hour
Enjoy!

Oh my gosh...this looks so so gooood. I have never made a rubarb pie in my entire long life...I can't remember if I like it but with strawberries, I feel certain I would LOVE it. Thanks so much for the recipe.
Oh, and, yes, my little red loaf pan is flexible, too and STILL stuck. Next time I'll know to spray it with Pam first...live and learn, hu!!

I don't know if I have ever had a strwaberry rhubarb pie. Hard to believe I'm a native Texan, huh? ;o) Happy Foodie Friday!

Nancy said...

Hey girl, You ask me about the pies, vanilla...
I just used my judgement on the vanilla...but I would say 1 teaspoon would be perfect.
Yes, It does make enough for 2 regular pie shells...I used the frozen pilsburry ones. They are just as good and already made! ;)

Let me know if you have any more questions.

The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.
