For the Pie Crust:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cubed

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 6-8 tablespoons ice water



Ingredients for the Filling:

  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved

  • 3 cups rhubarb, sliced

  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon



Ingredients for the Top Crust:

  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)

  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar (optional)




Directions


  1. Make the Pie Crust:


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt.

  • Add the chilled, cubed butter and cut it into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter or your hands until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  • Gradually add ice water, one tablespoon, and mix until the dough comes together.

  • Divide the dough in half, shape into discs, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least one hour.



2. Prepare the Filling:


  • In a large bowl, combine strawberries, rhubarb, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon. Mix well and let sit for 15-20 minutes.


3. Assemble the Pie:


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out one disc of dough to fit a 9-inch pie dish. Transfer the dough to the pie dish and trim the edges.

  • Pour the strawberry rhubarb filling into the crust.

  • Roll out the second disc of dough and cover the pie, sealing the edges. You can create a lattice crust for a decorative touch.

  • Brush the top crust with beaten egg and sprinkle with turbinado sugar if desired.



4. Bake the Pie:


  • Place the pie on a baking sheet to catch any drips.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.

  • If the edges of the crust brown too quickly, cover them with aluminum foil.



Cool and Serve:

  • Allow the pie to cool completely on a wire rack before serving to let the filling set.

  • Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra treat.


TIPS

  • Fresh Ingredients: For the best flavour, use fresh, ripe strawberries and rhubarb.

  • Crust Perfection: Keep your pie crust ingredients cold to achieve a flaky texture.

  • Storage: Store leftover pie in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.



Enjoy your delicious Strawberry Rhubarb Pie!
