Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie

Technically a vegetable, rhubarb is treated like a fruit and is traditionally paired with strawberries, which complement its tart, fruity flavor. Rhubarb comes in two types. Field rhubarb, most often available in late spring, is cherry-red and has a more pronounced flavor than its hothouse kin. Hothouse rhubarb is bright pink and is usually in the market year-round. To avoid a stringy filling, slice the rhubarb no wider than 1/2 inch thick. If the outside of the stalks are stringy, remove the strings with a vegetable peeler. Rhubarb leaves are mildly toxic and should always be discarded.

Perfect balance of sweet and tart
May 26, 2014
I had never made a strawberry rhubarb pie before this, or even had a piece. What a nice surprise! This recipe strikes the perfect balance between sweet and tart. I substituted Instant Clear Gel for the tapioca called for in the recipe and used a pre-made crust, and it was delicious. I brushed the crust with egg yolk and dusted it with sugar crystals before baking giving it a nice crunch. Optimum cook time was 65 minutes. I served it at a BBQ and every last bite was eaten. I can't wait to make this again...maybe with a lattice top crust.
Pros: Quick, Easy, Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again

Classy and Easy

In all my years of cooking, never before had I made a Rhubarb pie. At a special party the guest of honor requested a Rhubarb pie......I found the recipe at W&S. It was delicious and soooooo easy to make! Highly recommend.

Simple-n-sweet, fabulous summer treat
June 7, 2012
Many times, I'd heard about strawberry rhubarb pie on Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion. For last year's Independence Day celebration , I decided to give it a go, relying on my history with and trust in Williams-Sonoma's always perfect pie recipes. Although the pie was golden and gorgeous, none of the guests wished to touch it as, prior to this, they'd had "bad" experiences with or didn't like the idea of the mysterious rhubarb. Needless to say, I was glad to have also made the W-S Blackberry Farm’s Blackberry Cobbler (available here) from berries freshly picked outside our door. But then, my dear husband decided to have his finger in the pie (couldn't resist; not literally!), and when everyone heard him "mmm..." and "ohhhh...", they decided to try. It soon surpassed the cobbler! Our family has a breakfast tradition of eating leftover pie the next day with a glass of milk.... An old-fashioned, delicious slice of life.
Pros: Easy, Will Make Again
