WILMA'S PINK LADY PIE







This is a reposting from 2009.  I am doing my part here to encourage springtime - you know - bring it forward!!!


How about a slice of PINK LADY PIE:




Don't be fooled by that greenness outside -
 these photos are from July 2009.






Wilma Pfadenhauer gave me this recipe back in the 1980's. She was a "waste not want not" lady who new how to get the value out of every dollar.  She always had rhubarb in her garden!


Wilma's Pink Lady Pie:
For the crust you will need 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/2 Tb sugar, 1/2 cup oil, 2 Tb milk


Mix ingredients thoroughly and press into 9" pie pan, crimping the edge of the dough around the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Set aside to cool!


For the filling: 2 cups diced rhubarb, ( I also added 2 cups fresh strawberries) 1 3 oz pkg of strawberry jello, 1 cup sugar, 1 Tb lemon juice, 2 cups whipped cream which was 1 1/4 cups of heavy cream whipped with 1/4 cup confectioners sugar


Cook rhubarb and strawberries with the sugar until tender. Add the jello and stir until dissolved. Let cool and add the lemon juice. Fold in the 2 cups of whipped cream and pour into the cooled crust and refrigerate. This pie can now be frozen for later if desired.


Top with additional whipped cream or ice cream when ready to serve.

Bernideen, this pie looks so, so delicious. And beautiful! In fact, your entire table setting is lovely!

I saw your little tea sets. They are so precious! I only remember having plastic, and that is what my granddaughters have. In fact, I just bought a Disney set for them. But the china is so pretty and dainty!

Thank you for your prayers, dear friend. May the Lord bless you, keep you, and give you an absolutely wonderful weekend in Christ!

In His Love,

Andrea

Rhubarb is not one of my favorites! lol But this pie sure looks wonderful! I had my four grandchildren for several weeks. Not much time to visit. I gone to Doc, did a lot of begging, I going to have a major, major surgery in mid September. So much I want to get done before I go to surgery!

Hi Bernadeen. Your pie looks absolutely scrumptous. I would like a slice please. Love the tablecloth. Someone has taken a lot of time embroidering it. It is just beautiful, and I also love the little tatted pieces on the table. All of it is just beautiful for your Saturday Pink. Please stop by and say hello. As always I love to have the Pink Saturday posters stop by. Country Hugs, Sherry

That sounds absolutely delicious, Bernideen! So you PRESS that into the pie pan rather than roll it out, I guess? I am so ready for Spring. I LOVE rhubarb and strawberries together. This was worth a repeat- xo Diana
