These mini pies are strawberry rhubarb pie meets rhubarb crumble with the crumble topping adding the perfect sweet, crumbly addition. It’s a favorite recipe of mine. To make them extra special, serve still slightly warm with a scoop of old-fashioned vanilla ice cream.
Mini Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Pies
1 batch of your favorite pie dough. (I use this recipe, reserving the extra dough for future use)
- Roll out pie dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/8" thickness.
- Use mini 3" pie pansas a guide by placing them face down on dough and using a knife to cut around each pan. Use a metal spatula to lift pie dough circles into the mini pie pans. Do not worry about the crust covering the lip of the pans, that isn't necessary.
- You will want to have 15-16 mini pie pans lined with pie crust.
4 1/2 cups fresh rhubarb, cut into 1/2" cubes
1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Combine the rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, and flour in a mixing bowl.
- Evenly scoop this fruit filling into the prepared mini pie pans. Mound the filling up a bit because it will condense down as it bakes.
- Place the pies on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup cold butter (1 stick) cut into small cubes
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- Combine all of the Crumble Toppingingredients into a mixing bowl and cut the butter into the mixture with a pastry cutter or with your hands, until the mixture forms small crumbs.
- Evenly scoop the crumble mixture over each of the pies. You may need to softly press the crumble mixture into place if it is falling off the pies.
- Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until the crumble is browned and the filling is bubbling. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or pack for a picnic or lunch and eat at room temperature.
