My pride an joy of the evening was the strawberry rhubarb pie. My mother had brought me some home grown rhubarb and I mean what is a rhubarb novice, like me, to do but make some pie? The stalks were on the green side but this had no consequences, the dessert came out perfect. I need to make pie more often, it's so fun to make. I will always insist on making my own crust but I have yet to settle on my preferred version. I thought an oil crust was the easiest of the brunch to make after many a fight with the more traditional cold butter method, but thanks to this recipe, I discovered yet another reason to worship my food processor! Next on the metal to-do list: a lattice pie.
