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!!

steph was a bit overzealous with the flour LOL

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!!!!

I love rhubarb! And rhubarb plus strawberry is even better, but throw that into a pie, and you've got Heaven! Hey, can I come live with you and have you bake this for me every couple of days?

Marta said...

Oh Steph, this pie looks delicious! That crust looks just divine... it must be the second stick of butter ;)
Strawberry and rhubarb should always go togethere, there should be a law about it!

Looks great! I still have never made or even tried rhubarb pie. Its not very common here in Texas, maybe I should change that? :)

That pie is a thing of beauty, Steph! So much more fun to cook with a friend ... and you're right about the action shots. I'm always wishing there was someone else around to help out with that!

Lo said...

one of my favorite spring/early summer desserts -- without a doubt. Yours looks fantastic.

And kudos for making your own crust. I don't do that often enough -- and there's really no reason why!

Cucinista said...

Pie? Yes please. Especially strawberry and rhubarb. So not healthy but sooooo good.

Megan said...

I could tell just by looking that it was freaking delicious!!

Mags said...

Can I come over and taste this please? Hubby is allergic to rhubarb and I haven't had it in over 30 years. And I love it!

stephchows said...

Natalie- really?? none in TX?? I think you do need to change that for sure!

Astra Libris- good call on the pie :)

foodnfit- Well I think this is the perfect opportunity for you to go have a first pie!

PB swirl and Rebecca- thanks! I had so much fun taking them

Diva on a diet- I know I was just trying to take pictures of how to pit cherries today... on my own... wicked hard!

Lo- awesome! I love home made pie crust, it's so easy, and tastes so much butter if you ask me :)

Cucinista- sometimes you can't be healthy all the time :)

Megan- haha my mom emailed me and was like "so was it good or what??"

Mags- come on over! Too bad you all don't live closer! I'd have you all over for a big dessert night :) What a bummer that he is allergic!! Never heard of that one before... maybe he's faking it :)
