Cooking time: 45 minutes
Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
â€¢ 1 egg
â€¢ 1 cup sugar(I use 3/4 c Splenda)
â€¢ 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
â€¢ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
â€¢ 3/4 pound fresh rhubarb, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
â€¢ 1 pint fresh strawberries, halved
â€¢ 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie shell
â€¢ 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
â€¢ 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
â€¢ 1/2 cup quick-cooking or rolled oats
â€¢ 1/2 cup cold butter
1. In a large mixing bowl, beat egg. Add the sugar, flour and vanilla; mix well. Gently fold in rhubarb and strawberries. Pour into pastry shell.
2. For topping, combine flour, brown sugar and oats in a small bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over fruit.
3. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
4. Cool on a wire rack.
*I always put foil or a cookie sheet under the pie plate as this can be a very jucey pie while baking!
