Yesterday I promised you the dramatic conclusion of what I made from my farmers market purchase. Well, dear readers, fear not. I am about to deliver on my promise. I present to you, completely from scratch: strawberry rhubarb pie!
Yes, you read right. Not only did I successfully bake my very first strawberry rhubarb pie, but I also made the crust from scratch and it was neither chewy nor greasy. The pictures are beautiful because of the amazing red color, so I'll let them speak for themselves [recipe at the end of the post].
I left it in the oven for a smidge too long (hence the dark spot to the right), but I ate that part and it didn't even taste burnt to be completely honest! If you want to take advantage of in-season fruits, head over to your neighborhood farmers market and pick up some strawberries and rhubarb (and a pint of vanilla ice cream) and have yourself the perfect springtime tangy sweet treat!
For the pie crust, I'd recommend the award-winning recipe from my friends Mike & Charlie over at Brooklynauts.com.
