Cupcake Print Aprons & Strawberry Rhubarb Pies

Last week I decided it was time to make a pie and figure out the easiest way possible.  I searched online for the best possible recipes for easy to make crusts as well as fillings for a fruit pie and decided that I would take a tricky strawberry and rhubarb pie and make it as simple as possible.  I’m also excited that my cupcake print apron from Flirty Aprons also got here so I included it in the picture.   It’s the same cupcake apron from this post, and when my cupcake print apron finally came in the mail I was excited enough that I had to bake.  I have an amazing apple pie ready for you next week.  Anyways, I’ve already told you how much I love cupcake print aprons for baking and for showing off and unfortunately the picture with it laying flat doesn’t show how fabulous it actually is.  Flirty aprons also sent me a fabulous matching oven mit for the cupcake print apron they sent me.  Anyways, click the image or link below and you’ll be able to buy this same fabulous cupcake print apron and oven mit and please remeber to use Coupons apronsshop20 to save when you buy cupcake print aprons.

What I loved about baking in my new cupcake print apron is that it completely helped me to add love into my food.  When I was looking at the fun cupcake print on this apron I could help but smile.  I love how colorful it is, I love the trim and the red neck straps and yellow waist straps that tie into perfect bows.  Because you can tie the neck and waist straps to whatever length you would like, you can tie it to adjust the apron to fit your perfectly.  I also loved that the yellow waist straps on this cupcake print apron match the pockets on the front of the apron perfectly.  When my friends came over they smelled the pie instantly and more importantly I was still wearing the gift from Flirty Aprons and they all wanted to know where they can buy cupcake print aprons for themselves.  The pie and the fabulous cupcake print apron were both hits and I love my new favorite cupcake print apron to wear when I’m baking.  I’m actually wearing it right now while making the apple pie for next week.  Anyways, here is the easy to make and easy to do strawberry and rhubarb pie.

The first thing I did was find the easiest possible pie crust recipe on earth which turned out to be this one.  All it is is

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Then you just take your dry ingredients and throw them into a huge bowl, then mix in your wet ingredients and the easy to make pie crust is done in less than a minute.  You just have to mix it together so that it turns into dough.  Then roll it out and fit it to your pie pan.  I also did another one (which didn’t look as good because I messed up placing it on top of the pie before measuring it which you can see in the picture) and then you bake your pie in the oven on 400 for about 15 to 20 minutes.  If you brush a beaten egg on the top I think it would brown even more.  For the top crust, you could always add a bit of extra sugar or just place it on top of the pie to make the top crust a bit more sweet.

The filling.

For the pie filling I just mused everything up and left some strawberry chunks in for texture and then mixed in my favorite preserves and then got it to taste how I wanted, then threw it into the pie crust.  After that I placed the top crust on and put it in the oven.

The strawberry rhubarb pie was a huge hit.  It was sweet, tart and the crust was perfect for it.  I loved the recipe and everyone loved my cupcake print apron and I told them all to come here, click on my link to buy cupcake print aprons and also to use the coupon code apronsshop20 to save until 9/30 on cupcake print aprons at one of my favorite apron shops.
