  • 1 package of ready to use pie crusts for 9 inch pies
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 cups rhubarb, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced ¼ inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons half & half or whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons coarse sugar
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 9 inch pie plate with one crust. Mix together sugar, flour, rhubarb, and strawberries. Place filling mixture in pie crust. Dot the filling with butter. Cover with top crust; seal and flute. Brush crust lightly with cream; make several slits in crust with sharp knife. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.

    Cover edge with 2- to 3- inch strip of aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning. Bake until juice begins to bubble through slits in crust, approximately 45-55 minutes.

    Serves 6-8.
