Ingredients (detailed measurements are in the recipe card below):

  • Premade pie crust (refrigerated or frozen is fine)
  • Large egg
  • Water
  • Turbinado sugar
  • Fresh rhubarb
  • Fresh strawberries
  • White sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Corn starch
  • Lemon zest (one lemon’s worth)
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Salt
  • Standard Muffin Tin (12)
Four mini strawberry pies with lattice crusts on a white plate. A fresh strawberry rests on the table in the foreground, and a bowl of strawberries is in the background.

Getting Ready to Make Strawberry Rhubarb Mini Pies:

Note: Detailed instructions are in the recipe card below. Gather all of your ingredients and equipment, and grease a standard muffin tin with shortening or coat the insides with baking spray. 

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  

Prepare the pie crust:

Step 1: Spray a standard size muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray, set aside. 

Step 2: Roll out the pie crusts onto a sheet of parchment paper or a lightly floured counter top.  Use a 4 inch or larger round cookie cutter to cut out 12 mini pie crusts.  Reserve the scrapes to reroll for the lattice in later steps.  

Step 3: Gently press each pie crust into the prepared muffin tin.  Set aside. 

Make the pie filling:

Step 4: In a large bowl, combine the rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, brown sugar, corn starch, lemon zest, vanilla and salt.  Gently toss to combine.  

Step 5: Using a large spoon, carefully scoop out the filling and place into each prepared pie crust.  Fill until the fruit reaches the top of each pie crust.  The liquid can be divided and filled in around the fruit pieces.  Set aside.  

Creating the Pie Crust Lattice:

Step 6: Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut the remaining pie crust into ¼  inch size strips.  (You can just use two sizes of pie crust strips if you prefer)

Step 7: Lay two strips on top of each pie crust and then lay another two strips perpendicular to the first two.  Weave the strips to create a simple lattice on top of each mini pie.  Repeat until all mini pies are assembled.  Trim off the excess strip pieces so that they are even to the top of the muffin tin and gently press to connect with the bottom pie crust. 

Step 8: Combine the egg and tablespoon of water in a small bowl.  

Use a pastry brush to coat the lattice on top of each mini pie. 

Sprinkle with the turbinado sugar.

Baking your Strawberry Rhubarb Mini Pies:

Step 9: Bake in the preheated oven for 23-25 minutes or until the filling is bubbly and the crust is golden brown. 

Allow to cool slightly before gently removing from the pan.  Use a butter knife to help release along the sides of the pie crust.  Remove the pies while still slightly warm.

Variations and Substitutions

pie Crust Lattice or Cutouts: We think the pie crust lattice is so cute and perfect for baking fruit pies. Pie crust cutters are another way to put a small top on your mini pie, there are so many cute ones available!

Canned Pie Filling: Don’t have enough time to make the pie filling? There are some great canned strawberry rhubarb pie fillings available. 

Whipped Cream or Ice Cream: You can serve your mini pies naked, but why not dress them up with whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream?

Cool Whip: One of my favorite shortcuts instead of whipping heavy cream.

Can I make my Strawberry Rhubarb Mini Pies ahead of time? 

Absolutely! I also try to bake desserts the day before, less fuss and it really lets the flavors all blend together.
