Finally Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Monday was the day. The day I finally made Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. I decided to use smitten kitchen’s improved recipe with the all butter crust. Both untried and new. I have a tried and true and loved crust recipe. But I used the all butter because Deb (smitten kitchen’s author) swears by it.

Dave helped make the filling while I rolled out the crust. Dave was very curious by the rhubarb, which looks like pink celery. He asked if he could try a bite…see pic below.  

Needless to say it wasn’t sweet like he thought. It was sour. I guess I should have told him it would be sour and not sweet. But the pie turned out great...

The filling was not too sweet and not too sour and it had the perfect consistency. It was almost perfect. But the crust just wasn't like my tried and true and loved crust. So needless to say I kicked myself for not making my crust. (from Biscuits, Spoonbread, and Sweet Potato Pie by Bill Neal).

But Dave loved it and it always gives me great joy when he really likes something I cook or we make together.

  1. Yes, it was a little bit tart. Although, I went back for seconds.
