Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie


Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie is an all time favorite of anyone that loves rhubarb. Add vanilla ice cream and your pie will be an even bigger hit! You can use fresh or frozen rhubarb as well as store bought pastry dough or your own favorite homemade pastry dough. HERE is my favorite pastry dough recipe.

Adapted from http://www.allrecipes.com






In a large bowl add the rhubarb,

strawberries, flour and 1 cup of sugar.



Toss to combine.



Let sit for 30 minutes, tossing after

15 minutes. Do not skip this step. Toss well so

no sugar is visible after the 30 minutes is up.



Place one pie pastry into a 9″ pie plate.



Pour in the rhubarb mixture. At this point

you should dot the pie with the butter. I was

teaching my granddaughter how to make this

pie and I completely forgot to put the butter

on top. Funny thing is, it was delicious

even without the butter…lol



Place the other pie pastry on top. Crimp

the edges together and cut slits in the top.



Whisk the egg yolk with a fork. Lightly

brush the yolk all over the top,

(just until wet, you won’t use the entire yolk)

then sprinkle the remaining sugar evenly over the top.



Cover the edges with foil. Bake in a

preheated 425 degree oven for 15 minutes.



Remove the foil, reduce to 375 degrees

and bake for 30 minutes more or until

the top is golden brown.



Let the pie cool completely, cover and let it sit

overnight on the counter. The next day cut and

serve with ice cream (optional). You can serve

it the same day, but it will probably be runny. If you

want it warm the next day, microwave it before eating.

    • I saw the word “rhubarb” and couldn’t resist! I tasted a rhubarb pie for the first time in 1976, when I was a young girl living in Maine, Our neighbors, the Myers, had tons of rhubarb growing in their yard and Mrs. Myers would always bake my family a pie. Enjoyed that scrumptiousness for two years before moving away and haven’t had it since. Seeing this recipe, I’m going to bake my own! I grow strawberries, and you know, I’m going to add rhubarb to my garden. Thank you so much, Anand, for stirring up the sweet memory! Can’t wait to bake the pie and savor the taste! Until soon!

      • Awe what nice memories Tanna! My hubby just bought me some strawberries so I can make another one tomorrow. My grandkids just LOVE this pie and I promised them I would make one this weekend. I have had my rhubarb just over 25 years so once you plant it and it get stalks bigger than a pencil, you will be picking it for a long time. If you move, dig it up and take it with you…lol


  1. Sounds good and looks great. Being from Connecticut I never had rhubarb up there. Now, here in NC it is almost a staple but I’ve still never had it. Gonna have to try some.

  2. This brings back nice memories for me Diane and also with a side of vanilla ice-cream or frozen yogurt on the side. Hmm – “Intermediate” … I’d have to just make the inside part. I saw someone with a bundle of rhubarb the other day when I went to the grocery store, the first time there since March 1st!

      • Yes, I was lucky to hold out that long Diane. I had a couple of small Amazon orders of pantry-type foods to tide me over and that was it. I took advantage of their Amazon Prime this last month before finally venturing out. That’s great your husband does the shopping so you don’t have to go with all the crowds and germs due to your health issues.

  3. Man oh man…I have rhubarb recipes stacked up and I keep checking the Walmart website to see if they have fresh rhubarb to no avail. We only have two other grocery options…little neighborhood grocery stores… and they never have rhubarb. Sigh… Your pie looks so good!
