This time around, with being so busy, I cheated and used a frozen pie crust. Yes, I can make my own, but seriously, when it's this kind of pie, it's the filling that is the star of the show, not the crust.
I have made this recipe a number of times. I have no idea where I got it from. Likely somewhere on the internet. I'd love to give credit for whoever came up with this recipe, but its origins are unknown. Likely anybody who is a baker has made a similar pie, but just in case you are looking for yet another recipe, here it is: (sorry I have no idea how to do one of those recipe posts where you click to get a printable version)

|It only took two long ribs of rhubarb for this pie. You can see my "cheater" frozen pie crust!|
|It even looks pretty just stirred together in the bowl! I love the colour combination of red and green in rhubarb.|
|This pie barely put a dent into my strawberries. Two of these containers are just from today and I have another bowl in the fridge. (I also have plans for jam).|
|This recipe is always too much for a standard 9 " pie crust, so I pour the extra into these cute little baking dishes. The topping is more like sugar cookie dough smeared on the top, than a crumb topping.|
