Reviews for Strawberry/Rhubarb Crumb Pie
"Took this to a picnic last weekend and everyone loved it!"
"This pie was excellent! After reading the reviews, I did make a few changes. I cut the sugar to 3/4 cup and added 2 tsp. of cornstarch and 1 Tblsp. of lemon juice. I baked for 53 minutes. The pie was perfect; not too sweet or too tart! I I refrigerated after cooled and did not experience a problem with being too wet."
"I made this pie following the recipe with no changes and it was excellent. You need to let it set up in the fridge before serving otherwise like some folks said, it will get soupy. It's FANTASTIC!!! I have no intentions to add cornstarch or flour. Love the recipe as is!"
"This pie was ridiculously wet, I could pour liquid out then after letting it sit it was still floating. I even added the cornstarch as other people reccomended. I don't know what I did wrong but two years I've made this , the wetness was embarrassing and a waste of ingredients."
"This was SO delicious!! This will be my 'go to' for a rhubarb recipe! It was a little runny but we didn't care since it was so tasty but maybe I'll try a little cornstarch next time or maybe a little more flour? Either way you can't go wrong with the taste! Loved it!!!"
"Made per the recipe and I wish I had read the reviews first. This does need some cornstarch. I will add it next time as I will definitely be making this again!"
"Very soupy. Need to put some cornstarch in it the next time."
"Made it with cornstarch in the filling and loved it!!!"
"I'm definitely going to make this again only with a little cornstarch in the filling to thicken it up a bit. It was pretty runny and made the crust a bit soggy but overall pretty good."
"The pie was very good, but mine was very tart. I used 3/4 cup sugar in the filling and added 2 teasp corn starch, based on other reviews. I used approximately 4 cups strawberries and a little more than 3/4 pound rhubarb. Maybe it was more tart because I used fresh rhubarb. For the topping, I used 1/2 cup oats, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 2 T melted light butter, plus a little water, and then dropped pieces on top of the filling. I used a deep dish pie plate and didn't have any dripping problems. The recipe cooking time was perfect (I did use a pie guard for the crust). I might increase the sugar to 1 cup next time, or just make sure I serve it with plenty of Cool Whip to cut the sourness. It also would be good as a crisp, with more topping and no pie crust."
