- 4 cups flour
- ½ tsp salt
- 1½ cups shortening
- 3/4 cup cold water
- 1 tsp vinegar
- 1 egg
- 4 cups rhubarb, chopped ½ inch thick (if using frozen, do not thaw)
- 5 cups strawberries, stems removed and sliced
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 2 Tbsp orange zest
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp butter, room temperature
- 1 egg
- Optional: Coarse sugar for crust topping
Start by preparing the crust. Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Using pastry blender, cut shortening into flour until mixture forms into small pieces. In another small bowl, whisk together water, vinegar and egg until well blended. Pour liquid into flour mixture and stir together with fork until dough comes together. Be sure not to over mix. If the dough seems too dry and crumbly when forming into a disk, add a tablespoon of water, one at a time, until you achieve the right consistency. There should still be some dry crumbs around the edges. Knead dough with hands and divide into two circular, flat disks. Place both disks in plastic bags and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or up to 24 hours for the best results.
When the dough is ready to be rolled out, lightly flour a large surface and rolling pin. Take one disk and roll out evenly to make a 12 inch circle to fit a 10 inch pie pan (crust should be 1/8-1/4 inch thick). Carefully roll dough around rolling pin and transfer to pie pan. Line bottom of the pan and cut excess dough from the edges. Place pan in refrigerator while making the filling.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, flour, zest and salt in large bowl until fully combined. Pour filling into pastry-lined pan. Cut butter into small pieces and dot the top of fruit mixture.
Roll out second disk of dough on floured surface into a 12 inch circle. Sprinkle flour generously on Pie Top Cutter and press firmly into the center of the dough. Lift to reveal cutouts. Roll cutout crust around rolling pin and transfer to the top of the pie, centering the designs. Cut extra dough from top crust and flute pan by pinching top and bottom crusts together. Add additional dough cutouts if desired. Whisk an egg in a small bowl. Brush egg onto pie crust and sprinkle with coarse sugar, if desired. Add an additional shield edge to the pie crust with a long strip of foil, about 4 inches wide. Bake for 50-70 minutes until crust is golden brown, removing shield for last 10 minutes. Let pie cool before serving.
