Strawberry Rhubarb Rose 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.
