Preparation

Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie

Place rhubarb on towel or layers of paper towels to thaw and drain, removing as much liquid as possible. Preheat oven to 425˚F. Roll out crust for two 9-inch crusts. Place 1 crust in bottom of pie pan; chill for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk together egg and water in a small bowl to make egg wash. Set aside. Mix thawed and drained rhubarb, strawberries, brown sugar, sugar, orange zest and orange juice in a large mixing bowl; set aside for 10 minutes. Stir flour and cinnamon into rhubarb-strawberry mixture. Pour filling into shell and brush edges with egg wash. Add top crust and seal edges with fork tines. Use a sharp knife to slice a cross into center of top crust. Using your fingers, pull back all 4 points of the cross until the dough can be pressed into edges of crust. Egg wash top of pie and sprinkle streusel topping onto exposed pie filling. Collar pie with foil and bake for 10 minutes. Decrease temperature to 375˚F and bake an additional 30 to 40 minutes or until pie is golden brown, removing foil last 15 minutes. Cool before serving. Serves 6 (makes a 9-inch pie)

Streusel Topping

Combine sugar, brown sugar, flour, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Mix in softened butter with a fork or fingers until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in vanilla extract. Set aside.
