The dream team combination of strawberry and rhubarb come together in these amazing vegan mini pies! Delicious filling and simple coconut oil crust make this classic dessert irresistible!
Okay – I know I am a little late to the strawberry rhubarb game. But better late than never though, right? I have been fiending to make something strawberry rhubarbish for a long while now. For some reason though, it has continually been pushed back to “next week”.. then the next week, and the next. The fact that I haven’t been able to find rhubarb hasn’t really been helpful either. But finally, friends, finally – I found me some ‘barb!
Not in a grocery store either – straight out the damn ground from a friend’s backyard! I never realized that picking your own produce right out the earth is SOO satisfying. And as soon as I found some, I started seeing it in all the grocery stores. Go figure, right? But anyways, you know we gotta do it right and make a good old strawberry rhubarb pie. But not just a regular ol’ pie – mini pies! You know how I love my grab and go, perfectly portioned desserts like my *shameless plug* Vegan Double Chocolate Mini Muffins or my Mini Vegan Chocolate Cakes!
So here we are, mid-August bringing back a blast of spring. I can already feel summer coming to an end with all the back to school things everywhere and the impending arrival of pumpkin flavoured everything. I figure we might as well get as much spring/summer flavours in while we still can! Whose with me!?
These mini pies are made with an easy coconut oil crust (very similar to the one I used in my Vegan Cherry Pop-Tarts recipe), and baked in a muffin tin for the perfectly sized little pie. The filling is pure and simple strawberry rhubarb goodness. There’s really not much to it! These are sooo gooood topped with some coconut whipped cream or vegan ice cream. Trust, friends. It is deee-frickin-licious.
So, in ode to Spring/Summer ’17, lets make some pie shall we?
