Can someone please enlighten me as to why I can’t find rhubarb anywhere? So, so sorry folks, but I don’t have a strawberry-rhubarb pie for you. I simply have a strawberry pie, but let me tell you – it’s amazing.

It doesn’t take a lot, and it’s no bake, which basically makes for a very easy dessert that you’ll want to keep in your list for something fast to share.

Although I kept it in the fridge for several hours to cool and harden slightly, it still served like a crisp, but I’m completely okay with that. We eat with our eyes first and no matter how it comes out of the pie pan, it still looks good!
