Reviews for Rhubarb Berry Pie
"This recipe is great! I tweaked it by reducing the rhubarb to 2 cups, kept the strawberries at 1 cup and added 1 cup of blueberries. I have made it 3 times now and we can't get enough of it!"
"I made this pie for my husband's birthday at his request. I personally do not like strawberries, raspberries, or rhubarb, but I made it for him anyway. I followed the recipe exactly, using fresh rhubarb and fresh strawberries. Since I never tasted the filling while I prepared the pie, I just had to hope and trust the pie would taste good!! My hubby said the pie was absolutely delicious and he would love it if I made it again, so I guess I will!!!!!!"
