For my first blog, I decided to try out a classic summer dessert recipe with my younger sister, Anna. My two sisters and I have been baking since we were little girls - from chocolate chip cookies to Nutella-stuffed cinnamon sugar muffins. But, when we noticed fresh rhubarb in the kitchen, we could only think of one thing to make – Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. Anna and I looked through our mother’s flour stained old cookbook, The Silver Palate, for a good recipe and of course, we found homemade piecrust. Yum!

Then I found a yummy sounding recipe on epicurious.com for the pie filling! So, how did it go?

First, we made the piecrust.

We decided to make it whole wheat - the only difference with using whole-wheat flour was the grainy texture of the crust. So, we mixed the flour, sugar, salt, butter, shortening, and water together and voila!

Now, the dough had to cool. Anna rolled the dough into two balls and put them in the fridge to cool for a couple hours.

Then it was time to start the filling! Yum! Just take some fresh strawberries, cut up the rhubarb and add the sugars, cinnamon, butter, and mix. This is the hardest part... try not to eat all the berries before filling the pie!

Finally, it was time to take out the crust, add the filling, place the crust on top, fold, and put in the oven!

And then this happened two hours later… Mmm!
