Buttercup Bake Shop Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

I love the combination of Strawberry and Rhubarb!

The Buttercup Bake Shop cookbook has a great recipe for one of the yummiest Strawberry Rhubarb Pies I have ever tried. What I love most about this recipe is the crunchy oat crumble that covers this pie – makes it all the more delicious.
