I shunned the strawberry-rhubarb combo until just last week
when my mouth met a piece of pie at Republique.
It was tart and sweet and crumbled so nice
that I went home and baked this version twice.
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
1Master Pie CrustSee above
1cupAll purpose flour
1/3cupCornstarchor 1/2 cup flour
2tspsFresh passion fruit juiceentirely optional
Rub the butter between your fingers or pulse in a food processor until your butter pieces nearly disappear and the mixture looks a bit like wet sand. Set aside.
Wash and stem the strawberries and quarter them. Slice the rhubarb lengthwise if they are fatter than your thumb and then into 2" long pieces. Toss the fruit with all your other ingredients.
Preheat your oven to 425F.
Roll our your chilled pie crust to about the thickness of cardstock paper. Place this in your pie tin and either crimp or cut flush with the very sides of the pie tin with scissors. Place the fruit in the pie and top with the crumble.
Put the pie in the oven and turn the heat down 375F after 10 minutes. Bake until the fruit is bubbling and crumble is golden (about 40 minutes).
See our master crust recipe here (you’ll need just 1/3 of it for the bottom of the pie).
