Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 cups rhubarb, chopped
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 9-inch pie crusts, homemade or store-bought
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, for sprinkling

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the strawberries, raisins, rhubarb, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Stir well to coat the fruits evenly in the mixture.
  3. Roll out one pie crust and transfer it to a 9-inch pie dish. Press it gently against the sides and bottom of the dish.
  4. Pour the fruit mixture into the pie crust, spreading it out evenly.
  5. Roll out the second pie crust and place it over the filling. Trim any excess crust and seal the edges by crimping with a fork or your fingers.
  6. Brush the top crust with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
  7. Create slits or decorative cutouts on the top crust for steam to escape while baking.
  8. Place the pie on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  9. Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool for at least 1 hour before serving.
  10. Serve the pie warm or at room temperature, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream if desired.
