- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
- In a large bowl, beat egg. Beat in the sugar, flour and vanilla until well blended. Gently stir in rhubarb and strawberries. Pour into crust.
- For topping, in a small bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and oats; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over fruit.

Very Good! I used 2 c. fresh cut rhubarb as I cut mine smaller, and an extra cup strawberries (quartered mine) and followed recipe, let it set and chill several hours and it was wonderful. I even used gluten free flour and still had great results. Definitely would not use frozen rhubarb. Would be great in square dish without a crust.

I’ve made this pie at least 4 times and I love it. It always seems to turn out with the perfect amount of moisture/thickness. It tastes great and I don’t even have to make a crust. Great for a beginning pie maker.

I also wish that I had read the reviews. Pie looked beautiful but when sliced open reviled strawberry rhubarb soup. Flavor was good but the crust became soggy as the pie cooled. Very disappointed, as this is now destined to become raccoon food out in the brambles. Waste of time and cost of ingredients.

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.
