This Pie is SO amazing… it’s totally worth the effort of finding Rhubarb at this time of year!  Which was a little bit of a trick and after searching many frozen food sections, I ended up finding a friend that had frozen some from last summer!  Many thanks to Lora Lee for sharing her Rhubarb :)

This delicious Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie is from Flo’s V8 Cafe, I was given permission to reproduce this recipe by the Walt Disney Company for use in this post.
