Pucker Up for Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is a perfect combination for a delicious dessert, a little tart and very sweet. And with rhubarb in season, this recipe is just begging to be made for spring, right around Mother’s day!

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

I’ve shared my Mom’s delicious Strawberry Rhubarb Crumb Cake before, so I tried making a pie this time, perfect for a Mother’s Day dessert.


  • 2 cups cut up rhubarb
  • 2 cups cut up strawberries
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 T lemon juice
  • Topping: 3/4 c. sugar, 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter
  • pie crust – store bought is fine, but I like to make Martha Stewart’s Pie Crust


On low heat, cook fruit covered about 5 min. Add lemon juice. Combine 1 cup sugar and 1/3 cup cornstarch. Add to rhubarb mixture. Cook and stir 4 – 5 min. until thickened and bubbly. Cool.

Strawberry Rhubarb Filling

Prepare your pie crust and pour in the filling. Make your topping in a separate bowl of sugar, flour and butter. Sprinkle it on top of the filling.

Crumble Pie Topping

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 400 for 25-30 minutes. If you feel it needs more time, reduce the heat to 350 for another 10-15 minutes. You want the sugar to have melted with the butter for a brown and crusty topping.

Rhubarb Strawberry Pie

This is one of our favorite recipes to make in the spring, right around Mother’s day! It’s the perfect dessert for something fresh, especially if you head to your garden or to the farmer’s market for ingredients. We just picked up some rhubarb from the farmer’s market last week. I’ll be making this on Saturday for a yummy dinner Sunday!

  1. Thank you, thank you! This recipe was fabulous. I had some fresh rhubarb from my grandmother’s garden and I found your pie recipe just in time. I made 2 of these–homemade crusts and all–yesterday. One for my family and one for a family that I took a meal to. I realized, I could have eaten the filling by the spoonfuls it was so good.


    p.s. Oh, and I posted it, and linked to you. Thanks again.

  2. Mmmm this is one of my Mom’s fav pies, the girls and I are going to have to make it for her. You know even with it being one of her favs I have still never had a piece!

  3. I love strawberry rhubarb pie…and this recipe looks killer. I am going to attempt it on Saturday for my hubby’s birthday. He does not like cake…but loves him some pie.

  4. I’ve never had rhubarb’s, but I ? strawberries, so I am sure this is great. If only anyone else in my house loved strawberries, or pies…

  5. YUMM-O! I haven’t had rhubarb in so long and this looks delicious! I might have to try it on my kids (who LOVE strawberries and haven’t tried rhubarb). With any luck, they won’t like it and I can have it all to myself! ;)

    My Mom used to make some sort of rhubarb bars that had this crumb type of topping on them…sooooo good! Makes my mouth water just thinking of them!

  6. Yum. We just ordered rhubarb plants and gooseberry bushes. I hope they will thrive in the south. We used to make a rhubarb punch by juicing the stalks and then mixing it with Sprite or ginger ale for a taste of summer in the winter. Super tasty.

  7. my favorite pie in the entire world is strawberry rhubarb, i use to pick them up from zabars in nyc all the time..yum

  8. That. Looks. GOOOOOD!

    Can’t wait for strawberries to come back into season here… maybe another 6 months :(
