Crumb-Topped Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
Sharon Raasch, Imperial, Neb.
1 c. All-purpose Flour
1/8 t. Salt
1/3 c. Butter, chilled
2 Tbsp. Cold Water
1-1/4 c. White Sugar
1/3 c. All-purpose Flour
1/2 t. Ground Cinnamon
1/4 t. Ground Nutmeg
2 c. Rhubarb, sliced 1/2-inch thick
2 c. Fresh Strawberries, sliced
1/3 c. Pecans, chopped
1 c. All-purpose Flour
2/3 c. White Sugar
1/3 c. Butter, chilled
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Whisk 1 cup of flour and salt in a bowl. Cut 1/3 cup butter into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Moisten with water, 1 tablespoon at a time, just until the mixture holds together. Shape the dough into a ball and roll out into a 12-inch circle on a floured work surface—crust will be thin. Fold the dough gently into quarters and lay into a 9-inch pie dish. Unfold the dough and center the crust in the pie dish. Trim the crust to 1/2-inch of overhang and crimp or flute the edge of the crust. Refrigerate the crust while making the filling. Mix 1-1/4 cups sugar, 1/3 cup flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Mix in the rhubarb and strawberries and pour into the crust-lined pie dish. Sprinkle with pecans. Mix 1 cup of flour with 2/3 cup of sugar in a bowl and cut 1/3 cup of butter into the mixture with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the pie filling. Cover the edge of the pie with strips of aluminum foil. Bake in the preheated oven until the crumb topping is golden brown and the filling bubbles around the edges, 50 to 60 minutes. Remove foil for the last 10 minutes of baking to brown the pie edge.
