Strawberry Rhubarb Pie....
Prep: 35 min Bake Time: 55 min Cool: 2 hours *8 servings
Rhubarb is very tart so there is a lot of sugar in this pie. If you are using young rhubarb that is picked early in the season, the lower amount of sugar will probably be enough. Mature rhubarb needs more sugar.
Pastry for a Two-Crust Pie
2 cup sugar ( I only used 1 1/2 and it was perfect)
4 Tbsp corn starch
1 tsp grated orange peel (optional)
3 cups 1/2 inch pieces rhubarb
3 cups diced strawberries
1 Tbsp butter or stick margarine
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Make Pastry.
Bake about 55 minutes or until crust is golden brown and the juice begins to bubble through the slits in crust. Cool on wire rack at least 2 hours.
