Four Pie Date

Got together with Edie this weekend to dispatch of some Rhubarb in her freezer, and to take advantage of the new crop of Ontario Strawberries. Three hours and a bit of sweat and blood, and we ended up with four beautiful pies.
We loosely followed an old Betty Crocker sixties recipe for the crust:
5 cups of flour
6-7 tbsp ice water
2 tsp salt
1 and 2\3 cup of butter

The filling was about two pints of strawberries and 5 cups of rhubarb with several cups of sugar added. Man, what a joy. We split one between the two of us :)
