RECIPE BACKSTORY
Since we had friends over last Friday, Kathie decided to make 2 Strawberry Rhubarb pies. To save time Kathie didn't make the pastry from scratch, but purchased the pastry. We looked at different Strawberry Rhubarb Pie recipes and found the best one in The Better Home and Gardens Home Baking Cookbook. To us one serving is 1/4 of a pie. This recipe makes two 9 inch pies.
