RECIPE: Strawberry Rhubarb Slab Pie

May 15, 2017

This pie isn't very different from a traditional strawberry rhubarb pie, but since we're using a baking sheet with raised edges, it's big enough to feed a huge crowd. Not to mention that this recipe uses fresh ingredients to create a perfect combination sweet and tart. Try making this for your next big gathering!​



PREPARATION:

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Prepare your homemade pie crust and divide into two separate portions
  3. Crack egg into small bowl and whisk to prepare egg wash
  4. Trim and prepare rhubarb into half inch chunks
  5. Remove stems and quarter strawberries
  6. Add strawberries and rhubarb slices into a bowl and zest 1 orange over the fruit
  7. Juice the same orange into the bowl of fruit
  8. Add white sugar, brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, pepper, and salt over the fruit and mix well
  9. Roll out half of the pie crust and layer the base of the edged baking sheet
  10. Pour fruit mixture into the dish
  11. Roll the other half of the pie crust and layer it over the top
  12. Crimp the edges of the pie to seal it closed
  13. Brush with eggwash and sprinkle sanding sugar over the top
  14. Cut vents into the top of the pie crust
  15. Bake for 55-60 minutes until crust is golden brown
  16. Allow the pie to cool before serving

TIP: For a sweeter pie: soak the rhubarb wedges in a bowl of water with sugar and salt to cut down on the tartness.
