Hi Everyone! This is Aida from The Crafting Foodie, and I’m so excited to be back at Oh My! Creative sharing one of my family’s favorite summertime treats – Strawberry Rhubarb Pie.
My version of Strawberry Rhubarb Pie features an all-butter, flaky crust with a sweet and tart filling made with fresh strawberries and rhubarb.
My kids love eating it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but I’m a purist. I eat a heaping wedge of pie with a generous sprinkling of powdered sugar. My husband, he goes for a dollop of lightly sweetened, freshly whipped cream.
While this pie can be made any time of the year with frozen fruit, I usually save this recipe for the summer, after we go strawberry picking. Since my kids just started summer vacation today (Yes, it is the end of June, and summer vacation just began!), we haven’t gone strawberry picking just yet. Since all of the markets around our house are bursting with fresh, locally grown strawberries, I knew I’d need to make this Strawberry Rhubarb Pie!
Aside from the perfectly balanced sweet and tart flavors of this pie, I love how berry pies look. While some people might think that the fruit juice leaking out the top crust and the edges of the pie looks messy, I think it makes the pie look rustic and mouthwatering. The filling is so juicy that it’s bursting out of the pie, and I think it looks pretty darn gorgeous. Who couldn’t use a little more strawberry pink on their plate?
I seem to have a pie for every season. My favorite for the fall is this Maple Pecan Tart. For the winter, it’s these Maple Pecan Tarts. And for the summer? You guessed it. It’s this Strawberry Rhubarb Pie!
Linking to these wonderful parties!
