Buffalochef's Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

"This is my first time to rate a recipe and this one definitely deserves 5 stars all the way," says community member Rose. "The ginger really adds great flavor so don't skip it. I will definitely make this again and again! The only advice is to make sure you put the baking sheet underneath while the pie is baking. I put tin foil over a sheet and drippings still overflowed into the bottom of my oven... The pie was so good that the mess was worth it!"

Renee's Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Community member Dave Boldt shares a top tip for making this strawberry rhubarb pie: "Wonderful recipe. Great tastes all combine wonderfully. Just be careful when baking as mine was quite juicy and ran out. Luckily I had a pan underneath and caught all spillage. Once cool, it had a wonderful consistency. Have now made this pie a couple more times, and have fixed the extra juice problem by not adding all the juice from the mixture when putting it in the pie shell, and also by sprinkling a bit of tapioca into the bottom of the shell."

Maman's Fresh Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

If it's too warm to use the oven, try this no-bake strawberry pie and keep your kitchen cool. Here, you'll make a simple graham cracker crust and line it with strawberry slices, cook the filling on the stovetop, and let everything chill for an hour after you add the filling. You could also use a pre-baked crust if you're set on including pastry.

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie

The trick to this pie's flavor is letting the rhubarb "marinate" in sugar to bring out its flavor. Give the pie enough time to sit so the filling can settle; the juice will thicken overnight, so this is best prepared a day in advance.
