I know you want a slice. Two quintessential flavors of summer, rhubarb and strawberry, are fruits that are born for each other, and they marry happily ever after in this classic pie. Spring's coming a bit late this year in Southeast Alaska, and it was just this weekend when planting the vegetable garden that I found enough rhubarb for the first Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie of the summer!
Some skinny 1st-of-the-year rhubarb on the chopping block
I used the Pie Crust recipe from the Fiddlehead cookbook. I couldn't remember if I'd posted it before or not, but it's easy and it's good. Flour, butter, water. That's it.
I used a short cut. I think it was extra delicious. I used a couple pints of frozen, SWEETENED strawberries, and the result was an extra sweet pie. Yum.
Can you make out the "1st" on the crust? 1st rhubarb of the season! Alriiiight.
