I have made the Martha Stewart Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, as seen here. Lattice pies are lovely but not something you can whip up in 15 minutes. Yes, you can make pie in 15 minutes. Yes, that includes making your own crust.
I make my pie crust from an old Betty Crocker recipe using flour, milk, vegetable oil (it’s the only thing I still use vegetable oil for!) and a little salt.
For this recipe, I made a 9″ pie shell mixing together 1 1/3 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/3 cup vegetable oil and 3 tablespoons of milk.
Roll out and transferred to a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet.
For the filling, I used 2 stalks of rhubarb cut 3/4” thick. Add 1/2 cup sugar, 2 cups roughly chopped strawberries, 1/8″ teaspoon of salt, 3 tablespoons of cornstarch and about 1 1/2 tablespoons orange juice. Mix together and pour in the middle of the pie crust.
Fold the sides in towards the middle, overlapping slowly. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about one hour. Let cool and transfer to a cake stand and serve. Goes great with a little strawberry ice cream.
