Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is the Dessert That Won’t Derail Your Diet

By  | 

With springtime comes a fresh crop of rhubarb, and for those who are a fan, the best type of dessert you can make with this extremely tart treat is strawberry rhubarb pie. The sweetness of the strawberries (as well as the added sugar) helps to balance out the tangy taste of their counterparts in this delicious pie that makes for a great close to an evening—especially topped with a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Rhubarb makes great crisps, crumbles, and pies, and you certainly don’t have to twist our arms to sample the spring and summer crop of strawberries! Using almost equal parts of both in your pie filling will produce an amazingly juicy dessert. For those who haven’t cooked with rhubarb before, it’s as simple as if you were preparing celery. Remove the leaves (these contain oxalic acid and anthraquinone glycosides, which are toxic for consumption) and make sure to wash the stalks thoroughly. Then you can proceed to cut the ends off and begin slicing. For this particular recipe, you’ll want to slice the pieces at approximately a half-inch each.

This mouthwatering recipe was produced by Sally’s Baking Addiction blog. The making of a strawberry rhubarb pie is relatively easy. However, the full ingredient list and measurements, as well as detailed directions for preparing and baking the dish are readily available at the link provided here. As a fresh spring treat, together with perhaps some Blue Bell ice cream, this is tops! Very few of us in Texas would be known to turn that down. Those not interested in making their own pie crust can, of course, purchase the pre-made kind at the grocery store. However, for those who would like it, Sally’s site also provides a recipe for this as well.
