Great recipe! Thank you for sharing! I used farm fresh rhubarb and strawberries and it really turned out wonderfully. Recommendations from someone who rarely cooks (me): Be ready with a little extra oil and milk because the dough may be too dry to roll using the amounts in the recipe. Just add a little oil and a little milk and mix it in your hands until it s sticky but not too sticky. Also you may not want to use the top piece of parchment since it s awfully hard to roll when you can t see it and it s slipping all around;-) Be sure you use the instant tapioca! (Don t prepare it just use the dry stuff in the box.) Oh and for the rhubarb after slicing it into 1 inch pieces slice it once the long way in order to bring out the flavor. For those of you that are worried about making a big mess in the stove cover the bottom rack with aluminum foil so you can catch any extra filling that might seep out. When sealing the pie go around the edges with a fork it give it a nice look. This was my first homemade crust and it turned out great!
The filling in this recipe was very good I did not try the crust because the refrigerated pie crusts are better than I make and save so much time. I will use this recipe from now on. I used about 21/2 cups rhubarb 2 cups strawberries slightly more sugar than the recipe calls for and 1/4 cup maybe just a hint more tapioca and it turned out wonderful.
The filling for this pie was quite tasty but rather runny even after it had cooled completely. After prolonged chilling it got better. I had a lot of difficulty with the crust--I have to agree with some of the others in saying that it doesn't seem to have enough moisture to hold it together and therefore is very crumbly and hard to work with (although the waxed paper does help a bit.) It turned out a lot thicker and tougher than my usual crust recipe. If you're just making this for everyday you might dare to experiment with the recipe provided here but if presentation is important to you I would recommend substituting your tried and true pie crust recipe.
This was surprisingly easy to make. I am not a "baker" and I had no problems making the crust - there was just not enough of it to have a top & bottom. Next time I will double the crust recipe better to have too much than too little. The filling was great. I served it to my husband and his parents who all are tough customers to please and they all liked it. Although my mother-in-law said she never had it before with tapioca as a thickener she usually uses flour so the taste was a little different to her. I thought it tasted great and will definitely make it again! Thanks Deb!
Made this dessert yesterday; with a few minor changes. With all of my pie crusts, before the pie goes in the oven, I take a long strip of aluminum foil & rim it around the outer edge of the pie crust. Ten minutes before done, I remove the foil. In this way, you will always have a nice crust -- no burnt edges. I also brush the top crust with egg wash & sprinkle with white sugar for added sparkle. Another variation is to just sprinkle the top with water & use turbinado Sugar In The Raw) for sprinkles. You can make several variations of pie slits; the easiest is to take a tableknife & insert into crust; make a small twist to resemble a bow tie. I have used mini cookie cutter shapes to vent the top crust also -- and reuse the cut out pieces as added decoration pressed along the outer edge of the pie crust.
