Simple Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
This Strawberry Rhubarb Pie has opened my mind.
Pie! The idea of making a homemade pie gives me a tiny tingle of . . . dread and doom.
Please understand I have nothing against pie. I just . . . suck at baking pie.
I think I can count on one hand (okay, maybe both hands) the number of pies I have baked in my life.
Jeff tells me I bake pies like his mother. Her homemade pies look just like store-bought pie . . . that has been dropped (twice), stepped on and then kicked home for two blocks!
I’m actually a little proud of this Fresh Strawberry Rhubarb Pie from Completely Delicious.
It took all of 15 minutes to prepare, thanks in part to store-bought pie crust and the fact that there are no complicated steps involved in making the filling — chop/slice the fruit, mix with dry ingredients and there you have your filling.
Cover with top crust, bake an hour in the oven and out comes delicious!

A Strawberry Rhubarb Pie -- so easy, even I can make it!
Now, that's saying a lot. Pie is not my strong point. For this Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, I used store bought pie crust, and I was impressed. Delicious ... and so convenient! Definitely use a parchment lined baking sheet under the pie for easy clean-up. The lovely fresh strawberries and rhubarb bubble up in the oven and spill over onto the parchment. This recipe is slightly adapted from one I found on Completely Delicious -- apparently it came from an old Betty Crocker Cookbook. It's simple and perfect!

|Preheat oven to 400°F. |
Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Take one sheet of pie dough (rolled out to a 13-inch circle) and place in a 9-inch pie pan.
In large bowl, whisk together, flour, sugar and salt.
Add strawberries, rhubarb and orange extract.
Stir until well coated.
|Pour all into prepared pie pan. |
Break the butter into pieces and scatter over the top of the filling.
Take second sheet of pie dough (rolled out to a 12-inch circle) and carefully cover the top of the pie.
Pinch top and bottom pie dough together and then fold under to form edge. Pinch decoratively if you are inspired!
Make steam vents in top of pie using a very sharp knife.
Mix egg and water and brush all over.
Bake for 1 hour or until crust is browned and filling is bubbling up out of the steam vents.
Check pie after 30 minutes to see if crust is browning too quickly. If so, cover loosely with foil for duration of cooking time.
|Allow to cool completely before serving.|
