    Hello Tori,

    Short question – Is the history of this pie British?

    Love Love Love your insight and wholesome food!

      Hi Michelle! Great question. I would need to research it a bit. With a newborn in the house, not sure if that will happen anytime soon! But if I run across it I’ll report back here. 🙂 So happy you’re enjoying the website!

    tapioca? I bought cook and serve tapioca pudding …I don’t know if I use this in the recipe and do i cook it first?

    • Ashley at ToriAvey.com says

      Hi Diane, Tori’s assistant Ashley here. The cook and serve tapioca pudding won’t work in this recipe. You need to use tapioca pearls. Hope this helps!

    I made this pie with your crust recipe for my Father in-law’s birthday today, and it was a huge hit. My brother in-law asked me to make one for his birthday, too.

    The tapioca really does make a difference. I’ll never use cornstarch again. I added a teaspoon each of vanilla and cinnamon and substituted half of the white sugar with brown to make it more to the family’s taste, though.

    Thanks for the great recipes. I’ll definitely use them again.

    Ok, I don’t make pies often, but my dad asked me to try a strawberry rhubarb…so I went looking on-line and found yours! It;s in the oven right now, and smells great BUT, silly me–I forgot the dabs of butter on top!! Hopefully I haven’t ruined the whole thing! I’ll let you know how it turns out…..( to be cont’d!!)…

    • Tori Avey says

      Don’t worry Deidre, it will probably turn out fine. The butter adds moisture and gives the filling a bit more flavor, but it should still taste good. Let me know!

    • Deidre says

      Thank you Tori!!! Your recipe is a hit– both with my dad and my hubby, and even my sister and nephew loved it!! Today I’m doing some smaller pies for my mother-in-law (gulp!!), cuz the hubby says that it tastes “as good as my mom’s!” Love having a rhubarb patch in my backyard! And missing the butter in the first one, wasn’t a big deal, either! Dad said it tasted great! Thanks, again…!! 🙂
