Strawberry Rhubarb Pie...

Last week I placed an order for some fresh Rhubarb.....
Little did I know it only came in a 20 lb. box!  Yup, you heard right...20 lbs.
So needless to say I was cutting and chopping all afternoon.
And just in case you are wondering how many cups a 20 lb. box gives you, and I am talking small pieces...30 Cups!!

And that brings us to today recipe....Strawberry  Rhubarb Pie.
This also happens to be one of my Dad's favorite's. Since I am heading home for the Memorial Weekend & family H.S. Graduation I thought I would take a couple with me. (*I am also taking THE BEST Potato Salad! I will share that later*)

*This will make (2) 9 inch Pies

4 C. Fresh Rhubarb; cut into small pieces
4 C. Strawberries: you can use frozen
1 1/2 C. Sugar
1 tsp. Cinnamon
6 TBSP Corn Starch
1 tsp. Lemon Juice

 Mix the above ingredients together and set aside to release juices, about 15 minutes.

In mixing bowl combine:

2 C. Flour
1 C. Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
2 Sticks Cold Butter: cut in small pieces

Mix together until crumbly.

Divide filling between (2) unbaked Pie shell's. 
then top with Crumb topping.
 Bake @ 400 for 45-50 minutes.

Cool completely before cutting.

*The crumb topping is optional, you can top with another pie crust. Make sure to cut slits in top for air holes.

I LOVE strawberry rhubarb pie! I grew up with it and introduced it to my husband's family. Now it's a favorite of theirs, too!

Never had strawberry rhubarb pie but I hear it's delicious. Is the rhubarb salty which creates a savory kind of pie when mixed with the strawberries? In any event, I'm going to be trying a piece sometime this summer!
