Serving Size: 6 Preparation Time :1:25
Wash rhubarb, cut away any tough parts and chop into small pieces.
- 2 cups rhubarb -- diced
- 1 pint strawberries
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 3 tablespoons tapioca -- quick-cooking
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons margarine
- 1 batch pie dough, enough for 9" double pie crust
Slice the strawberries and add to rhubarb.
Mix the remaining ingredients and add to fruit.
Blend well and allow to stand for up to 30 minutes to allow sugar
to penetrate strawberries.
Pour mixture into 9-inch pie crust, dot with margarine and cover
with second crust.
Cut slits in top crust.
Bake in preheated 375-degree oven for 50-55 minutes.
Cover pie with aluminum foil tented over it during first 30 minutes,
removing to allow crust to brown during the last part of baking.
About 10 minutes before done, brush on warm milk and sprinkle top
crust lightly with sugar if desired.
