When missionary friends dropped by unexpected last summer, this pie is what I served for dessert. I first made it for a church gathering 20 years ago—ever since, everyone's looked for it! As a young girl, I dreamed of being able to make pies like my mother. (Her rolling pin, which I inherited, was 2 ft. long and 8 in. wide!) In fact, this is Mom's rhubarb strawberry pie recipe with cherries instead. I love rhubarb! My husband and I—our three children are 21, 18 and 11—have a 30-acre farm, with hay and cattle, in addition to our city jobs, and I grow eight hills of rhubarb.
