rhubarb, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 1/2 tablespoons
My favorite pie on the planet is a Strawberry Rhubarb Pie I've been making for probably 40 years and look forward to every spring. So making this pie was a real departure, and I only did so because I got a little carried away with my market's sale on berries. What a treat! I used 2 c. rhubarb, 2 c. raspberries, and a cup of blueberries, and simply added a tad more sugar and flour to compensate for the extra amount of berries. There is no need to start this the night before--just let the berries and rhubarb sit in the sugar/flour mixture until they start to release their juices, stirring every so often. Because rhubarb and raspberries are tart I omitted the lemon juice and was glad I did. I didn't bother with melting the butter, just dotted it with a little butter before slipping on the top crust. For those who are not big fans of rhubarb this may be a good recipe, as the rhubarb flavor is subtle. Rhubarb lovers might want to add more! Either way, this is a beautiful, jewel-toned pie that perfectly showcases the flavors of the season.
The pie was good, however, it was too tart for the kids and takes 2 days to make, since you have to soak the berries overnight.
Excellent! I took the other reviewers' suggestions and added more filling (including strawberries), and it came out fantastic. Maybe slightly too runny - next time I will spoon the fruit into the pie instead of pouring the fruit and juices.
I used blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and rhubarb. All-in-all it turned out very yummy. I used about 8 cups of fruit, so I doubled the flour and used about 1 1/4 c. sugar. I usually don't make berry pies and have learned my lesson to let it sit overnight before cutting it. I couldn't help myself, cut into it warm and it was VERY runny - but the next morning it was all set up, so I think I had about the right measures of flour and sugar.. Just didn't have the patience to wait to eat it!!! The crust is perfect. I will use that recipe again for other pies. It's just the right mix of crunchy and flaky.
I made this for Easter, and it was FANTASTIC! I used frozen fruit--I forgot to buy raspberries, so I just used equal amounts of rhubarb and blackberries. It was tart and sweet: a perfect combination. I didn't want to hassle with making pie crust, so I just used a Pillsbury crust and it was still wonderful. Don't let the two day prep time deter you; it takes so little time each day that it isn't worth worrying about. Also, other than the raspberries, I followed the recipe exactly and I didn't have problems with it not filling a 9-inch pie plate or being too runny. Try it and enjoy!
Very tasty! I found the filling to be a bit skimpy, I double it. Great crust!
This was really good. I used a fresh rhubarb and a frozen berry mix with blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries. It was a big hit on Mother's Day.
This was THE most incredible pie I have ever had. To make it even easier I used the Pie Crust III recipe (also allrecipes - and AMAZING): I also believe the Pie Crust III recipe prevented the "runny" issues another reviewer had, since it's a substantial, chewy crust that can hold those yummy juices. For the crust, I followed the tips from reviewers (added 2 tsp sugar, 1 tsp salt, and made 1.5 x the dough).
I'll second the pie reviewer who said you don't need to let it sit overnight (maybe 2 hours) but I DID add the lemon juice/butter and was VERY glad - it added the perfect tang, just make sure you use fresh lemon juice (not bottled). Seriously. This is a slice of heaven. I didn't even care for ice cream with it because I didn't want ANYTHING detracting from the perfect tang of the berries and the flaky perfect texture of the sweet crust. MAKE THIS PIE!!!
