    Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

    Servings: 6


    3 cups rhubarb, chopped

    3 cups strawberries, quartered

    1 cup sugar

    ¼ cup cornstarch

    ¼ teaspoon salt

    1 package pie dough

    Garnish with whipped cream


    Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°C.

    In a large bowl, toss the strawberries and rhubarb with the sugar, salt, and cornstarch. Set to the side.

    Line a pie tin with the pie dough. Top with more pie dough in a full sheet with slits or cut into strips and weave a lattice design on top of the pie.

    Bake the pie until the filling is bubbling and the crust is golden brown, about 2 hours. Cover the edge of the pie with foil if it begins to darken. Let cool slightly before serving.
