Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

This pie is a thing of beauty.

I couldn’t even eat a piece after I made it last night because it was too pretty to cut.

The recipe is from a recent post on Smitten Kitchen. The writer talks about how pies can “smell fear,” which I think is hilarious and true. I’ve only made pie crust by myself once before, and it actually went really well. But this time, using the food processor, everything clumped all together, and I think my ingredients were too warm. When I tried to arrange the lattice strips, a lot of them broke, so there was no chance I was going to get an actual weave out of it. Still, I think it turned out to be a damn good pie.

Maybe today I can bring myself to eat it. If I have to.
