What I love about strawberry rhubarb pie

My friend Sarah gave me a few stalks of rhubarb from her backyard a few weeks ago, and I’ve been dying to make something super awesome with it. I was thinking rhubarb barbecue sauce or even rhubarb macarons. I pinned a ton of ideas, but, of course, I’ve been crazy busy at home and working on things for Sarah’s wedding this past Saturday. In the end, I was scrambling to use it up before it went bad.

The simplest thing I could thing of was a strawberry rhubarb pie, but that seemed a little too predictable for me, so I had to add a little twist. I replaced the orange juice that the original recipe called for with some rose water. I’ve been obsessed with rose water ever since I had my first rose macaron in Paris, and I think it pairs really well with tart flavors – like the lemon in my rosewater lemonade or the rhubarb in this recipe.

I made this with generic store-bought pie crust, and it turned out fantastic. I’ve never done a lattice pie before, but it was so, so much easier than I thought it would be. I just sliced the top crust with a pizza cutter. Then I just overlapped them to make the pattern. Then I cut out a heart with the extra crust for the middle. After I did the lattice pattern and egg wash, I sprinkled some extra sugar on top to give it a bit of texture.

I had so much fun making a pretty pie. I think next time I’m going to try one that is covered in cut out shapes like this one or maybe this one.

How to make strawberry rhubarb pie

Prep the pie crust. Preheat oven to 400˚F (200˚C). Place one of two pie crusts into a pie plate smoothing any spots as needed.

Make the pie filling. In a large bowl, stir together rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, rose water and cornstarch. Continue stirring until fruit is evenly coated with sugar/cornstarch. Fill bottom pie crust with fruit mixture.

Make the top lattice. Slice remaining pie crust into 1/4-inch slices using a pizza cutter or scissors. Lay slices in a lattice pattern over the filling. Press edges together to seal the crusts.

Don’t forget the egg wash. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water. Using a pastry brush, brush with egg wash over the pie crust. Sprinkle with sugar.

Bake the pie. Bake pie for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350˚F (180˚C) and continue to bake for an additional 25 – 30 minutes. Allow to cool before serving, which may take even a few hours.

FAQs and tips on making strawberry rhubarb pie

Why is my strawberry rhubarb pie runny?

This means the moisture content from the fruit is higher than the amount of thickening agent (in this case cornstarch). You have to catch this before the pie is baked, when making the filling.

Do you peel rhubarb for pie?

No rhubarb does not need to be peeled. It is very similar to celery, you will just need to chop it with a nice sharp knife.

Why is rhubarb mixed with strawberry?

These two foods pair perfectly. The sweetness of the strawberries balance the tartness of the rhubarb making a delicious result!
