Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

, , , , ,

This strawberry rhubarb pie is next to the apple pie, one of the most delicious pie I know! 😛 The sweet and fruity strawberry harmonizes particularly well with the slightly sour rhubarb. And then with the delicious pie crust…. Heaven!!!!

A scoop of vanilla ice cream goes well with this pie, but for me it works just as well without too.

The pie crust is not difficult to make, you just have to keep a few things in mind. The filling is prepared very quickly and the “woven top”, I tried to describe as good as I could. But even that is not impossible to do.

In any case, it is worth the effort because it just looks good and tastes soo… delicious. When the pie is baking, it smells really tempting. The most difficult part is to let the pie cool down first, so that the juice from the fruit “solidifies” a bit.

Rezept-Anmerkungen

The butter and water should be very cold.
The dough should stay cold, that is why it is best to use a food processor to knead.
Knead the dough shortly, so it stays buttery and flaky.

For the ice water I use a small bowl with water and ice cubes. Out of this I take the 6 tablespoons of ice water.
