Theme for Scrumptious Sunday

Tenth Edition

Sunday, May 4, 2008



A pie is an English baked food, with a baked shell usually made of pastry dough that covers or completely contains a filling of fruit, meat, fish, vegetables, cheeses, creams, chocolate, custards, nuts, or other sweet or savoury ingredients. Pies can be either "filled", where a dish is covered by pastry and the filling is placed on top of that, "top-crust," where the filling is placed in a dish and covered with a pastry/potato mash top before baking, or "two-crust," with the filling completely enclosed in the pastry shell.


Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

2 eggs
1 cup sliced strawberries
3 Tbsps. flour
2 tsps. cinnamon
2 cups sliced rhubarb
1 cup sugar
½ tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 425.

In a large bowl beat eggs with fork and add strawberries, flour, cinnamon, rhubarb, sugar and salt and mix well. Pour into pie shell. Top with second crust and flute edges together. Bake for 40 minutes. Cool.
