It is very good and fairly easy to make.

Step 1: Making the Crust
2 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 c. Butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/2 c. Ice Water
Make sure that every thing you use is as cold as possible. (flour and Salt excluded)
I mixed mine in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment,and I put the bowl and paddle in the freezer about 2 hours before I started.
The crust can be done by hand with a pastry blender or a fork and some patience.
Step 2: Mixing pie dough
(you are trying to get the flour to stick to the dough more than mix completely)
When you reach an oatmeal consistency
very slowly (about a tablespoon at a time) add in ice water.
dough will form a ball.
Wrap tightly in saran wrap and refridgerate for 4 hours or more.
Step 3: Preparing Pie Filling
For the filling you will need...
1 1/2 c. Sugar
3 Tbsp. Corn Starch
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp. Ground nutmeg
3 c. Rhubarb (about 1 and 1/2 Lbs.) (cut into small cubes)
2 c. of Strawberry's (cut into small cubes)
1 Tbsp. Butter (cut into cubes)
I suggest washing the strawberry's and rhubarb first :)
and make sure you only cut up the red stem of the rhubarb not any of the leaf as they are poisonous.
Mix sugar, corn Starch, salt and nutmeg in a bowl.
add cut up strawberry's and rhubarb to bowl and toss gently until coated, let sit about 15 min. (it will take on a syrupy look)
