We are officially tip toeing on the edge of holiday season (woo hoo!). I love this time of year because I get to sit around a dining room table passing the rolls, laughing at family stories, sharing joy, and filling up on warmth and love (and obviously too much pie). This is a newer holiday reality for me again and although I am really big into the holiday spirit, it hasn’t always been a positive journey (here is a fair warning, there are some real feels coming, but I promise, there is some joy in there).

my favorite girl
When your best friend tells you all she wants for her birthday is your homemade strawberry rhubarb pie, you make the best darn pie your little heart can make and that is just what I did this past weekend. I got fresh rhubarb from Michigan, made a butter crust, and filled the pie with love because that is all I have for this girl! To keep the love going, I thought I’d share this pie with you guys too!
Right before it is time to take the crust out of the refrigerator, you can make the filling so it starts to merry together
When it is time to top the pie, you can do a rolled out piece of dough or you can do a lattice crust (which is what I did)
