Some Pie For My Guy

A request…..for pie. But not just any pie…..Strawberry Rhubarb!! Mmmmmm. Extra sweet, lots of strawberries, and small chunks of rhubarb. Also special ingredients that make this pie so wonderful but shhhh they are a secret. Sorry cant tell. I even included my own homemade pie crust to the mix. But, to make your days I included the filling recipe (minus my special ingredients, dont worry it will still taste amazing without them).

  • 2 1/2 cups chopped red rhubarb, fresh
  • 2 1/2 cups de-stemmed, washed and cut strawberries (in larger pieces)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons minute tapioca
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cubed small
  • 1 egg white beaten with 1 teaspoon water
  • Large granule sugar

Mix the rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, tapioca, flour, zest and juice of lemon. Mix well in a large bowl and pour out into chilled crust. Dot the top of the filling with the butter. Brush edges of pie crust with egg white wash. Roll out the other piece of dough and place over filling. Crimp to seal edges. Brush with egg white wash and garnish with large granule sugar. Collar with foil and bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes. Decrease temperature to 375 degrees F and bake for an additional 45 to 50 minutes, or until the filling starts bubbling

Hopefully these two pies last until he gets here tomorrow afternoon. I know for sure they will be gone by the time he gets his hands on them.
