Rhubarb/Strawberry Pie Recipe

Rhubarb/Strawberry Pie Recipe

This recipe has become a favorite with us. My husband never liked rhubarb until he tasted this pie...now he asks me to make it often!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + standing Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking tapioca
  • 3 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb (1/4-inch pieces)
  • 3 cups sliced fresh or frozen strawberries, thawed
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons orange marmalade, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine sugar and tapioca. Add fruit; toss to coat. Gently stir in the juice, marmalade if desired and orange peel. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  • 2. Line a deep-dish 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust; trim pastry even with edge. Fill with fruit filling. Roll out remaining pastry; make a lattice crust. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cover edges with foil.
  • 3. Bake at 400° for 40-50 minutes or until filling is bubbly and rhubarb is tender. Remove foil. Cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
