Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Such a healthy use of fresh strawberries

For some lucky folks, strawberry season has begun. This pie can be made with a lattice top or a regular one, the lattice just looks prettier. Make sure to use only the freshest rhubarb and strawberries possible.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

  • 1 double pie crust
  • 2 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb sliced 1/2″ thick
  • 3 1/2-4 cups strawberries quartered
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp fresh grated nutmeg
  • 1 tsp rose water
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg yolk mixed with 2 tbsp water

Mix all ingredients together except egg wash and pie dough. Let fruit sit for 30 minutes to release some juices. Roll out two sheets of pie dough. Grease a pie dish and lay one sheet inside. Spoon in filling. Slice second sheet into strips and weave on top of pie. Seal crust at edges and brush with egg wash. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees and cook until thick and bubbly, about 1 1/2-2 hours. Cool on a rack completely before serving.

  1. Beautiful pie! I love it. So this is what you were using rhubarb for – do you have it growing already?

    We went to a reception the other night for the opening of an art exhibit. They served Shrimp & Grits (FABULOUS), fresh star fruit, pineapple, and strawberries, and . . . PIE.

    The Honey Walnut Pie was AMAZING! Almost like Baklava with a shortbread crust instead of phyllo. 😀

  3. Lover of the Pie here:)

  4. rutheh says:

    What a wonderful looking pie and the taste must be heavenly. I like that tart/sweet contrast.
    I forwarded your post to my pie judge friend, too.
    No rhubarb that I’ve seen yet but I will ask my friend who has a patch.

  5. BrainRants says:

    This would give me epic indigestion (strawberries) but I’d eat it anyway.

  6. Laura Parisi says:

    SO JEALOUS! We’ll start getting strawberries from California any day now, but the local Mt. Hood strawberries won’t be ready until June or July. I cannot wait… they are amazing.

  7. Oh my, this one looks wonderful and we love rhubarb. My mom and dad grew rhubard and my mom made the best pies. Of course, she added way too much sugar but they were still good. The first time I ever ate rhubard at my inlaws I don’t think my mil added any sugar. I nearly choked to death on the first bite! I will definitely make this and soon.

    What a beautiful looking pie !

  9. TasteFood says:

    My favorite kind of pie.

  10. An iconic spring pie. Too early for it here in California.

  11. I was just looking for a good rhubarb recipe! I may even try to bust out my own crust… maybe. 🙂 I think some ginger would be good in this too!

  12. egg me on says:

    Yowza! If you left this strawberry rhubarb pie on a windowsill to cool, I’d definitely take it. Also, rhubarb is a weird word, right? Ruuuu-barb. Rhuuuub-barb. I’m going to be saying that all day. Anyways, great stuff!

  13. I love that combination of flavors. You make the pie crust part look so easy to make… I may have to try, try again!

  14. A_Boleyn says:

    Gorgeous looking pie. Kudos on weaving the lattice top. 🙂

  15. It looks great, I can’t wait to try it. My grandmother used to grow rhubarb and I haven’t really had it since I was young.

  16. rsmacaalay says:

    Ive love what youve done on that pattern, I never made my pies like that too lazy to do it 🙂

  17. katyarich says:

    I’m really fond of pie and this one looks gorgeous and delicious:), just lovely!

  18. Purely.. Kay says:

    My mother is going to be so happy to see this recipe. She really likes rhubarb so I think she will definitely enjoy this pie

  19. I’ve never had rhubarb.

  20. Jessica says:

    That pie looks so great! Almost too perfect to eat, but that wouldn’t stop me..

  21. Charles says:

    I love rhubarb and strawberry – perfect balance of sweet and sharp. We only have Spanish strawberries here right now, grown under plastic – I find them so watery and sour.

  22. sanjapanja says:

    I’ll try this one when the season starts.

  23. Oh wow – we saw a case of strawberries (2kg) yesterday for about 3 euros. I wanted to buy it but as we´re going away tomorrow I resisted….but as soon as we´re back, I´ll be making one of these!

  24. Now that is a serious pie – congratulations.

  25. Christy says:

    Ooooh, I love the sound of fresh strawberries in this pie; you’ve got my full attention!:) As usual, a great job done even with such simple instructions 🙂

  26. I’m just jealous that your strawberry season has started, let alone the rhubarb. I’m off to sulk now!

  27. Rachel says:

    Oh mmmmmm! And I love the “floating” top crust, so pretty!

  28. WSW says:

    What a gorgeous pie! After strawberry season gives way to blueberry season, you can make blueberry rhubarb. It’s not as well known, but once you try it, you will never go back to plain blueberry pie again.

  29. Beautiful pie, gorgeous, gorgeous crust!

  30. Stef says:

    I’m jealous of your fresh strawberries. We don’t get locally fresh berries until June. 😦

  31. aFrankAngle says:

    We love the combination of strawberry and rhubarb in a pie … thus look forward to strawberry season.

  32. I can’t wait for strawberries to come into season up here! That pie looks gorgeous

  33. Tandy says:

    That lattice looks amazing 🙂

  34. billpeeler says:

    I didn’t grow up with rhubarb and only recently had it for the first time in a strawberry rhubarb pie – delicious! And your pie is beautiful – love to see a lattice on a pie!

  35. alex says:

    Hi, we’re not quite there on the strawberries yet, but when we are this is going to be on my hit list! What a great flavour combination, and I agree that you have to have a lattice, so much prettier.

  36. Kristy says:

    Lucky! Strawberry season already? This pie looks like one I’d have no trouble polishing off on my own; although I’m sure I’d have to fight off a few little ones first.

  37. My most favorite pie flavor – if only Jed (sportsglutton) baked pies…

  38. Mad Dog says:

    That looks beautiful and what a great filling combination!

  39. That one is truly Martha Stewart worthy. Strawberry season already? Not here my friend.

  40. Somehow, I’ve never tasted rhubarb, and your pie is inspiring me to give this a try when the strawberries are at their peak. What I want to know is how you got that nice, even and almost graphically designed ring of red juices around your lattice…it looks really cool! 🙂

  41. Courtney says:

    Our strawberries won’t be ready until at least June – I’m so jealous of you all that are getting them fresh right now. That pie is gorgeous, and I can just imagine the smell when baking.

  42. What a perfect pie! I’m jealous of those with strawberries in season now.

  43. Sissi says:

    You certainly are lucky! I want fresh strawberries so much, but still at least two months to wait… The pie looks gorgeous.

  44. thehaleyway says:

    So excited strawberries and rhubarb are back in the markets in L.A.!

  45. Caroline says:

    I mean, this is how I prefer to eat my strawberries. I don’t see what’s wrong with that?? haha. I can’t wait to start baking with strawberries–one of my all-time favorite fruits. This pie looks deeelicioso!

  46. Tell Katherine, she is a genius. I am assuming she made this exquisite pie. The lattice top is gorgeous and it’s just oozing with strawberry and rhubarb goodness.

  47. Strawberry season? hahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa….. sorry. We have to wait a ‘little’ longer here in Ontario. Your pie looks fantastic and gives me hope that at least spring is on the way! ;-).

  48. Strawberry season? We’ve still got snow on the ground! Wishing I had me some of this pie. Strawberry Rhubarb is one of my favorites!

  49. Great looking pie….can I send Liz over to pick one up?

  50. This looks gorgeous! I am a strawberry lover, but can’t say I have ever tried rhubarb. May have to check it out.

  51. niasunset says:

    Seems so beautiful and so delicious… Thank you dear Rufus, with my love, nia

  52. I love this pie. I’ve seen it everywhere: the strawberry and rhubarb combo, but I still haven’t tried it. I’ve bookmakred this, so I can attempt it when strawberry season comes around Down Under…

  53. k.m. says:

    YAY it is rhubarb season! I love the lattice top.

  54. Christina says:

    Look at that beautiful pie!! Mmmm..wish i had a slice right now! 😉

  55. Perfect lattice crust! I’m jealous. Mine always look a little alien.
    Here’s to hoping that strawberry/rhubarb season comes my way soon!

  56. If only I could find some rhubarb here in China.

  57. Torture seeing that pie. Sleeping babe in my lap, I’m hungry and no food within arm reach…torture!

  58. Rachel says:

    My favorite preserves are strawberry rhubarb. This pie looks delish!

  59. Very nice texture and ingredient combination.

  60. I’m bookmarking this one as my daughters boyfriend likes Strawberry Pie and 2 weeks ago I was looking for a recipe that I liked and none really did anything for me but this one does. Beautiful! Thanks – I”ll be making it next time they come to visit.

  61. zestybeandog says:

    This is a beautiful looking pie, I love it!

  62. Karista says:

    Oh how I long for a piece of this pie! Beautifully delicious 🙂

  63. Kelly Anne says:

    That pie looks amazin!. Love strawberries and rhubarb, but never had them together, sounds like a fab combo that I should try!

  64. Karen says:

    We have a ways to go before we will see rhubarb and really great strawberries here in New England. The pie looks great…I love a lattice top.

  65. This pie is such a tease! It won’t be strawberry season here for a while yet 😦

  66. What a gorgeous pie crust!

  67. Thank you. It’s beautiful.

  68. ....RaeDi says:

    Beautiful pie! Now T wants this pie!
