Strawberry rhubarb pie is a delightful dessert that combines the tartness of rhubarb with the sweetness of strawberries, all encased in a flaky pie crust. The filling is typically made by mixing sliced strawberries and chopped rhubarb with sugar, flour (or cornstarch) to thicken the juices, and sometimes a hint of lemon juice or zest for brightness. Some recipes may also include spices like cinnamon or ginger to enhance the flavor.

The pie crust is usually made from scratch, though pre-made crusts can also be used for convenience. After filling the pie crust with the strawberry rhubarb mixture, a lattice or full crust is placed on top, often brushed with an egg wash and sprinkled with sugar for a golden, crispy finish.

When baked, the strawberries and rhubarb soften and release their juices, creating a luscious, fruity filling that pairs perfectly with the buttery, flaky crust. It’s a quintessential summer dessert that balances sweet and tart flavors beautifully, making it a favorite among pie lovers.
