Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Posted by Lindsey On 8:19 PM

I saw this recipe on Katie's blog, Good Things Catered, and knew it would be the perfect thing to make today. It turned out fabulous and I got creative with it and made the top crust with dough cut into stars. This is the perfect summer recipe!

Strawberry and Rhubarb Pie
from Good Things Catered



Ingredients

1 recipe basic pie dough ( I used the pie dough recipe in Dorie Greenspan's book)
2 c. diced fresh rhubarb stalks
3 c. diced fresh hulled strawberries
1 c. sugar, divided
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp fresh orange zest
1/4 c. cornstarch
very small pinch of salt
1 beaten egg


Directions


In large bowl, combine rhubarb, strawberries, and 1/2 c. sugar.
Toss to combine well and set into colander over sink or bowl and let drain for 1 hour (this step is very important or you get a soupy mess of a pie once it cooks.)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare pie plate.
Roll out 1/2 recipe of dough and line bottom of pie plate.
In large clean bowl, combine strawberry and rhubarb that have been drained with remaining sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, orange zest, pinch of salt and cornstarch.
Toss to combine well and add to pie shell, smoothing out evenly.
Roll out remaining pie dough and lattice top the pie filling.
Brush lattice with beaten egg and place pie into oven.
Let cook for 20 minutes, then place a piece of tinfoil loosely over the top.
Continue cooking until filling is cooked through and bubbling, about 50 more minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack.
