For those of you who do not have a crust recipe, I highly recommend this one. I've been using it for years and if you don't need the second crust it freezes well. My father, who is a pie conisseur, has stated it is one of the best crusts he's ever had.

Two Crust Pie Pastry

3 C. Cake flour
1/2 C. All purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
3/4 C. Cold Butter, cut into pieces
1/4 C. Butter flavored crisco
7 TBSP water
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tsp. Lemon juice

Mix flours and salt together. Using a pastry cutter, cut in butter and shortening until mixture is pea-sized lumps. In a small bowl, lightly beat egg. Add lemon juice and water. Add to flour and mix with fork, "lifting" the flour to mix in the water. Knead a few times until dough is smooth. Divide in half and chill for 30 minutes before rolling on floured surface.

I've only made this using Strawberries, although I will be trying it once the Raspberries are ready!

Rhubarb Raspberry or Strawberry Custard Pie

3 C. Rhubarb, cut into 1/2" pieces
1 C. Fresh Raspberries or Strawberries ( dice Strawberries)
1 1/4 C. Sugar
1 TBSP flour
1/4 tsp. Cardamom (the recipe calls for nutmeg, but try this spice instead)
4 Eggs, beaten

Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl. Add eggs and mix until well blended. Spoon fruit into prepared pastry crust, pour egg mixture over fruit. Cover with crumble topping. Bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Cool completely before serving (I made mine a day ahead). Refrigerate any leftovers.

I have two crumble topping recipes. The first is the one I use on my apple pie, it is very good. It is also the crumble I used on this pie. The second one is a new one that I used on some muffins. It was divine, but I don't know how it would hold up on a pie.

Crumble Topping #1

3/4 C. Flour
1/4 C. White sugar
1/4 C. Brown sugar
1/3 C. Butter

Combine dry ingredients. Cut in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle liberally over top of pie prior to baking.

Crumble Recipe #2

1 1/2 C. Flour
1/3 C. White sugar
1/3 C. Brown sugar
1/2 Tsp. Salt
1/2 C. Butter, melted

Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl. Add melted butter and mix with fork until mixture becomes crumbly.
(This recipe also included 1 TBSP of poppy seeds; however that would probably not work with this pie!)

So there you have it folks. Enjoy!

Good morning, already warm here. A little rain would be nice, we are trying to get the grass to grow....

Normally I wouldn't repost my own quote, but since I put this up on a Friday night, I wanted to be sure everyone who wanted the recipe saw it.

Now, I need to go make the desserts for the meeting this afternoon....maybe I'll remember to take some picture!

Thanks Again!

I wish I could give you some of ours.  We have rhubarb that grows wild, compliments of the first homesteaders.  There are some very old patches and new plants that crop up wherever they decide to settle as well.

Wasn't me with the pie, yet anyway......   LOL!    You have MissWiggles to thank for the recipe.  It has decided to be foggy and with some rain, I don't know,...supposed to be hot again tomorrow.
