My mom gave me this summer perfect pie recipe and I ran with it! It is a delicious strawberry rhubarb pie with only 8 ingredients (and that includes crust). Perfect for summer (no baking) and really quick!

  • Place the remaining strawberries in a saucepan and crush (there should be about 1 cup of crushed berries); stir the rhubarb, sugar, water, and cornstarch into the crushed berries. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-low heat, stirring often, until the mixture thickens and becomes translucent. Turn off the heat, let the mixture stand until slightly cooled, about 2 minutes; stir in the lemon juice. Pour the mixture into the pie dish over the strawberry halves.

  • Refrigerate until completely chilled, about 1 hour.

Very disappointing. The combination of a graham cracker crust with strawberry rhubarb was not to my taste. Definitely needs more rhubarb. Added a whole cup and still could not tell there was rhubarb in it. The layer of strawberries on the bottom did very little to enhance the flavor or texture of the pie. Was very easy to make and it did set up beautifully. Read More

Yummy. My grandma used to make a fresh strawberry pie sort of like this so I thought I'd add a few of her tricks. For one thing I used a regular pie crust poked it with a fork and baked it before adding the filling. Graham crackers just seemed a little off. My favorite thing that she did was spread 4 ounces of cream cheese on the warm crust before placing in the halved fresh strawberries. To me this is a MUST! I also threw in some blueberries because I was a little short on strawberries. My husband and I loved this pie. It's a hard one to mess up-- just be patient and make sure that glaze is nice and thick stirring it constantly!! I posted pictures to show the nice color added by the blueberries. This was a pretty pie. Read More

My family loved this but I made one change and would make one more next time. I omitted the rhubarb because we don't really like it and increased the strawberries in the sauce by 1/2 cup. If I made it again I would bake the crust for 15 minutes to set it up better. It's tough to serve and leaves behind most of the crumbs. Still we loved it and will make it again. Read More

I followed the recipe (for once!) and it was beautiful tasty and gone in a flash. Topped with fresh whipped cream this pie was refreshing and because I could make it ahead and not heat the house by turning on the oven----it's a summertime keeper! Read More

This recipe really doesn't have enough rhubarb to give it the zest a real strawberry rhubarb pie should have. It was easy to make and the filling did set up well; but the flavor just wasn't there. Read More

I have been making this type pie for many years using just strawberries (no rhubarb) and then topping with whipped topping. Very easy and good but you need a lot of strawberries ( about 2 large boxes). I use whole strawberries standing on end in the shell and cover with the mashed strawberry syrup. Excellent and keeps in refrigerator if you have any leftovers. Read More

I modified/cheated a bit and used packaged pastry. It turned out to be a phenomenal pie and a huge hit. I am going to make it again tonight. Read More
