Every so often I mention that I love pie. I mean I love everything about pie. I love crust. I love filling. I love the crimped edges. I love the smell of it in the oven. I love pie. And this is my all time favorite pie in the whole world.
So go ahead. Say it's old fashioned. Say it's been done. But this is my mom's recipe. This is just plain good.
Mom's Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
1 1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. all purpose flour
1/2 t. grated orange peel
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Turn half of the fruit into prepared bottom pie crust; sprinkle with half the sugar mixture.
Repeat with remaining fruit and sugar. Dot the top of the pie with small pieces of the butter. Top with the pie crust. Crimp the edges and poke slits in the crust for air to escape.
