Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie - 6 points

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 10 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Pie

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
--Flaky Pastry Crust
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup canola oil
1 1/2 teaspoons skim milk
--Strawberry-Rhubarb Filling
3/4 pound fresh strawberries
3/4 pound rhubarb
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch salt
1 large egg white -- lightly beaten
--Streusel Topping
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons rolled oats
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon canola oil

TO MAKE CRUST: Working directly in a 9 inch pie plate, stir flour, sugar and salt together with a fork. Drizzle oil and milk over the flour mixture and lightly toss with fingertips or a fork until crumbly. With the back of a spoon, pat dough into the plate, taking care not to build up a thick layer in the corners. Press a floured fork onto the sides of the crust to crimp. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. (the crust can be prepared ahead and stored, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.)
TO MAKE FILLING: Place a biking sheet on a rack in the bottom third of the oven and preheat to 425 degrees F. In a medium-sized bowl, combine strawberries, rhubarb, sugar, flour, nutmeg and salt. Toss well to thoroughly coat the fruit with flour. Brush the reserved pie shell with a little egg white. Spoon the filling into the pie shell and set aside.
TO MAKE TOPPING AND BAKE PIE: In a small bowl, stir flour, oats and brown sugar together with a fork. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut the butter and oil into the flour mixture until crumbly. Sprinkle the topping over the pie and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and continue baking for an additional 45 to 50 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly and the crust is nicely browned. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm.

24 ounces strawberries
1 2.1 oz package sugar-free cook and serve vanilla pudding
1 4 oz package sugar free strawberry flavored gelatin
2 cups water
fat free or light cool whip for garnish

1. Rinse and hull strawberries. Distribute evenly in a 10 inch pie pan.
2. In a medium saucepan combine pudding mix, jello, and water. Stir well and bring to a full boil. Por mixture over strawberries and refrigerate for 4-6 hours. Top with whip cream and ENJOY!

My buddy made it for me--she is also doing 123..and says it's 8 for the whole pie. I believed her and counted each slice as a point (whip cream extra) but I haven't made it on my own yet and count up the points. I will soon though. I am starting to rotate this with the crustless pumpkin pie as dessert because pie is my weakness (pie and soup--my favorite foods).

Help! I just got some rhubarb from my neighbor and I'm looking for something (healthy) to fix with it. Any ideas?!?

Thanks in advance.

09-14-2000, 11:10 AM
I like to stew it. Can't remember which site I got it from but remember it is 2 points per serving which I think is 1/2 cup.

Stewed Rhubarb
4 cups rhubarb cut into 1/2 inch slices
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
grated rind of 1 orange.

Dissolve sugar in water & heat to a boiling. Add rhubarb & reduce heat to medium. Cook until softened...I like to keep some pieces fairly intact. Stir in orange rind and enjoy.

Here's a great, simple-to-make strawberry pie recipe I got at a WW meeting a few weeks ago.

1 baked 9 inch pie shell
1 cup water
8-12 packets of sugar substitute
2 Tbls cornstarch
3 small boxes of sugar-free strawberry jello
4 cups strawberries (about 1 1/4 lbs)

Mix water, sugar sub & cornstarch. Cook in microwave until mixture starts to boil. The mixture should be thickened; if not, cook a little more in microwave. Stir in the 3 boxes of dry sugar-free jello to mixture. Coat strawberries with thickened liquid mixture & pour into cooled, baked pie shell. Chill in refrigerator.

Serves: 6 (or more if you want to cut into smaller slices :) )
POINTS per serving: 3.5 (my crust recipe is lower in points, so my points per serving is less than the 3.5 - I think they used the point value of a store-bought frozen pie crust).
Add another .5-1 point if you want to top with LF or FF cool whip.

Someone posted a very yummy and incredibly simple recipe for strawberries (actually prob. any berry). 2 cups of 1/4'rd strawberries, 1 tbl of Balsamic Vinegar, 1 1/2 tbl raw/unbleached sugar. Mix the BV and sugar and dissolve as much as possible and then toss strawberries in. I know it may sound weird, but it's delicious. Apparently, in Italy, balsamic vinegar is mostly used for desserts!

Strawberry Pie

4 cups sliced strawberries
1 pkg sugar free vanilla pudding
2 cups water
1 pkg sugar free strawberry jello

Place berries in a pie plate. In a saucepan mix pudding and water with a whisk over medium heat; bring to a boil. Remove fdrom heat and stir in jello. Cool and pour over berries. Chill until set.

1/4 pie = 1 point

I got this receipe at my meeting this week. It is wonderful. If you want to use a crust, just add the points. I am thinking of trying it with different combinations of berries and flavored jello.


07-12-2002, 01:38 PM
This sounds great!! It is a little like the Key Lime Pie in the Today's Special. I have tried it with many different flavors of jello and yogurt. My favorite is orange jello and orange/mango yogurt. Give it a try.

06-27-2003, 01:20 PM
Strawberries are ripe here in Wisconsin-I've made this twice so far this week-it's great and easy!

1 pre-baked pie crust
5 cups sliced strawberries
1 sm. box cook and serve SF vanilla pudding
1 sm. box SF strawberry jello
2 1/2 cups water

Place berries in the baked pie crust, meanwhile in a med. sauce pan mix the pudding and the jello with the water. Bring to a rolling boil-stirring occasionally. Put this pan in the refrigerator until it starts to thicken (about an hour), then pour over the berries and refrig. until firm.

I served this with Cool whip free. Cut into 8 pieces it equals 3 points each. (this was figured with a reg. pie shell).

07-01-2003, 11:47 PM
Could you share your low pt. crust recipe too? I love pie!! :) thanks!

09-21-2004, 04:46 PM
Sounds Yummy. I am definately going to give it a try. Thanks for sharing. !!

09-22-2004, 04:34 PM
I made this last night and it is DELICIOUS. (Although I cheated and used a lo-fat graham cracker crust)

I also used instant vanilla pudding mix- I disolved the jello in 1 c boiling water, added the pudding and 1 c cold water and beat with an electric mixer until blended.
