Strawberry rhubarb pie
Baking is wicked fun, baking with a friend is even more fun! For starters you have someone to chat up the whole time, second, it means I can take action shots of the chow! This recipe is being filed straight away under the "Not Healthy" The crust has TWO sticks of butter in it, yeah you heard me right... not ONE but TWO!!
This is the pie Steph and I made for her John. His parents have a couple huge rhubarb bushes. Steph's John says if you look up rhubarb in the dictionary it says it's a pie plant... something tells me he's making this up. Either way, we'd never say no to free rhubarb, so off we went to make a pie!
I made the crust, the recipe comes from Smitten Kitchen, don't you love her? I seriously want to be her. She has a great write up there and explains all the steps out. As for the pie filling, Steph made it, and that one comes from a Betty Crocker cookbook (you can find the filling recipe over here). The pie really is simple to put together. Just make sure you don't overfill it like we did... and if you do, just place a large jelly roll pan on the rack below it, makes cleanup WAY easier that way :)
And in case you were wondering... it was freaking delicious!!!!
