Notes on Ingredients

  • Pie Crust: You can use a store-bought pie crust or make your own. For an extra touch, try my Easy Homemade Pie Crust.
  • Rhubarb: Fresh rhubarb works best for this recipe. Slice it into 1/4-inch thick pieces.
  • Strawberries: Use fresh, ripe strawberries and quarter them for even distribution.
  • Custard: The combination of eggs, sugar, milk, and flour creates a rich and creamy custard that complements the tartness of the rhubarb.
  • Nutmeg: Freshly grated nutmeg adds a subtle warmth and depth to the custard.
  • Butter: Diced butter helps to enrich the filling and create a smooth texture.
  • Strawberry Jam: A glaze of strawberry jam adds a beautiful shine and extra sweetness to the pie.

How to Make Strawberry Rhubarb Custard Pie

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare your pie crust by placing it in a 9-inch pie plate on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Prepare the Filling: In a bowl, combine the sliced rhubarb and quartered strawberries. Transfer this mixture to the pie crust, spreading it out evenly.
  3. Make the Custard: In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, milk, flour, and freshly grated nutmeg. Slowly pour this mixture over the rhubarb and strawberries, filling just to the edge of the crust.
  4. Add Butter: Scatter the diced butter evenly over the top of the filling. Lightly tap and shake the baking sheet to remove any air bubbles.
  5. Bake the Pie: Transfer the pie to the preheated oven. Bake for about 1 hour, turning halfway through, until the rhubarb is tender and the custard is set.
  6. Glaze the Pie: In a small bowl, mix the strawberry jam and water. Heat in the microwave until warm, about 15 seconds. Glaze the top of the pie with the jam mixture. Let the pie cool and then refrigerate until ready to serve.

How to Serve Strawberry Rhubarb Custard Pie

Serve this pie chilled for the best flavor and texture. It pairs wonderfully with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. The tart rhubarb and sweet strawberries make each bite a delightful experience.

How to Store Strawberry Rhubarb Custard Pie

Store any leftover pie in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. It will keep well for up to 3 days. For longer storage, you can freeze the pie for up to 2 months. To freeze, wrap the pie tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil.
