Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Pie

Enveloped in a flaky all-butter crust and sprinkled generously with brown sugar crumble topping, this is the pie of my dreams (and even better topped with scoops of vanilla bean ice cream!).

Sweet strawberries and rhubarb shine in this buttery and delicious strawberry rhubarb crumble pie topped with brown sugar crumble.



  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 2 to 4 Tbsp ice water

Crumble Topping

  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, cubed


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar (see note below)
  • 6 Tbsp arrowroot starch (or 4 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 5 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced rhubarb
  • 1 tsp Meyer lemon zest
  • 1 tsp Meyer lemon juice


  1. Prepare dough: For the crust, combine flour, salt, and sugar in a food processor. Add cubed butter and process for 10 seconds, just until the mixture resembles coarse meal. With the food processor running, add 2 tablespoons ice water in a steady stream through feed tube. If needed, add additional ice water 1 tablespoon at a time, and process just until dough holds together in large clumps (no more than 30 seconds). Wrap dough in plastic and flatten slightly to form a disc. Chill in the refrigerator at least 1 hour (or up to 2 days, or place in a freezer bag and freeze up to 1 month).
  2. Prepare crumble topping: Combine oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until large crumbs form. Chill until ready to use.
  3. Place dough on a floured board and dust dough with flour. Roll out dough (roll dough in one direction, then lift up dough and rotate a quarter turn and roll, then repeat) until dough is a 12 to 13-inch circle. If dough starts to stick, use a bench scraper to lift dough from board. Transfer dough to a 9-inch pie pan (see note below); trim overhang to one inch and crimp edges. Chill in the freezer for 20 minutes. Place a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil in the oven and preheat to 350°F.
  4. Prepare filling: Whisk together sugar, arrowroot starch, and salt in a large bowl. Add sliced strawberries, rhubarb, Meyer lemon zest, and lemon juice to sugar mixture and toss together just until combined. Immediately spoon filling into chilled bottom crust and sprinkle with crumble topping.
  5. Place pie on preheated baking sheet and bake for 65 to 70 minutes, until golden and filling is bubbling. Cool pie on a wire rack for at least 4 hours before serving (filling thickens as it cools).


Pie pan: I used a 9 x 1.5″ pie pan. Sugar: If your strawberries are especially sweet, reduce sugar to 1 1/3 cups. Arrowroot starch is a natural thickener and creates a smooth, shiny sauce. Available online or in the natural foods section.

  1. My son LOVES strawberry rhubarb pie, and requests it every year for his birthday. When I discovered this crumb topping, it wowed him, and thus is now the only pie recipe we need.

  2. My family LOVES this pie! We are gluten free and this works perfect. I have found a frozen gf pie crust which makes assembly a snap. The topping works great with gf flour. Even our gluten-eating neighbor loved it. Thanks for a new summer favorite!!

  3. This is my first time baking with rhubarb and I was really unsure. Using a storebought crust, this came together in no time and was super delicious!!! Will make again! Fast, easy, delicious – perfect and a great dessert for company. Thank you!

  4. Just made this and it turned out lovely. I used strawberries and rhubarb that I had picked and froze last summer so it was a nice reminder of that time.

  5. THE best strawberry rhubarb pie I’ve ever made! Just the right amount of sweetness/tartness and loved not having to make a double crust. The crumble was wonderful and I cheated using a frozen pie shell as I had an injury preventing the ability to roll out crust. Cannot wait to try some of your other recipes!

    1. Thank you so much, Sandie! That’s fabulous to hear, and using a frozen pie shell is a great shortcut too. 🙂

  6. The sounds and looks absolutely delicious. Rhubarb & strawberry is a favourite combo of mine….. the colour is so pretty too! x

  7. Lovely! Such a great flavour combination and loving the crumble topping 🙂

  8. I still have yet to see any rhubarb this spring, but man, this pie looks so delicious. I need to find some rhubarb!

    1. Pie in the morning is quite acceptable around here… leftovers make the best breakfast! 🙂

  9. Strawberry Rhubarb is such a fabulous way to celebrate spring! You have captured the essence of the season in this lush pie!

  10. How GORGEOUS is this pie Laura?! That crumble topping and that strawberry rhubarb combo! Winner!
