Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

One of the most sustainably-minded moves you can make is shopping for your produce from your local farmer’s market. Not only are you supporting your local economy and sourcing your food closest to its source, but you’ll always find the freshest fare that’s in season where you live.

With rhubarb and strawberries coming into season, we’ve chosen the tastiest way to feature both of these amazing flavors at once: a fresh strawberry rhubarb pie. Enjoy!

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus additional flour as needed, up to 1/4 cup
  • 1/2 cup cake flour
  • 3 teaspoons sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening
  • 1/4 cup salted butter
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar
  • 1/4 cup ice-cold water


  • 2-1/2 cups chopped red rhubarb, fresh
  • 2-1/2 cups de-stemmed, washed and cut strawberries (in larger pieces)
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar (1-1/4 cups for high altitude)
  • 2 tablespoons minute tapioca
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cubed small
  • 1 egg white beaten with 1 teaspoon water
  • Large granule sugar


Using 2 pastry blenders, blend the flours, sugar, shortening, butter, and salt.

Whisk the egg, vinegar, and water in a 2-cup measure and pour over the dry ingredients incorporating all the liquid without overworking the dough. Toss the additional flour over the ball of dough and chill if possible.

Divide the dough into 2 disks. Roll out 1 piece of dough to make a bottom crust. Place into a pie dish and put into the refrigerator to chill.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Mix the rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, tapioca, flour, zest and juice of lemon, dash of cinnamon, and vanilla. Mix well in a large bowl and pour out into chilled crust.

Dot the top of the filling with the butter. Brush edges of pie crust with egg white wash.

Roll out the other piece of dough and place over filling. Crimp to seal edges. Brush with egg white wash and garnish with large granule sugar.

Collar with foil and bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes. Decrease temperature to 375 degrees F and bake for an additional 45 to 50 minutes, or until the filling starts to bubble. Higher altitude will take 450 degrees F and 400 degrees F respectively. Let cool before serving.
