It was the first time I've ever cooked rhubarb. I planted one rhubarb in my garden last year, and now I can finally enjoy some of it. It's excellent and it goes perfectly with strawberries. Tasty poetry in every bite, trust me.
Sweet and sour flavors mixed perfectly into a beautiful dessert, just in time to celebrate the beginning of summer.
If you're in a hurry, you can buy the dough from the supermarket, but if you wish to have a great pie, make yourself the paste from 400 grams of flour, 200 grams of butter, one tablespoon of sugar, one teaspoon of salt, and eight tablespoons of iced water. Start by mixing the flour with butter at room temperature, sugar, and salt, then gradually add the iced water to obtain a compact dough. Keep the mixture in the fridge for one hour before using it.
I added some frozen blueberries on top because I had them in the freezer, but they're not necessary.
Please, leave a hart and a comment if you like my recipe. And don't forget to share the recipe with your friends :)
