How to make a Royers pie

How to make a ROYERS PIE!!!

what I hear the most about making a pie is how the crust is scary or that it doesn’t look good. or that grandma or mama said it had to be done this way, but what if it didn’t? wouldn’t it still be amazing because you made it? so, here’s some simple guidelines and a recipe, now go bake that pie anyways!!

  1. don’t be scared

  2. it doesn't have to be perfect

  3. do it with lots of love and joy

  4. make more than one

  5. get ice cream

  6. gather friends around the table and share together

  7. do it again

this one.  it’s a sleeper on the menu, but it’s so good!! sweet with a bit of tartness.  yes, we use frozen rhubarb.  nobody got time to peel rhubarb.  and, let’s be honest.  we live in texas, rhubarb can’t survive.  


4 cups of frozen rhubarb pieces

3 cups of frozen strawberries

1 cup sugar

1/2 cups of flour

1 TBSP melted butter

1 tsp of lemon juice


1 cup brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup old fashioned oats…not quick

1/2 cup flour

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp of nutmeg

6 TBSPS melted butter

combine all ingredients.

combine fruit in large pan.  cook ’til turns to natural color.  or doesn’t look frozen.  add remaining ingredients and cook ’til thick.  stirring constantly.  pour into 10″ unbaked pie shell.  top with crumble topping and bake for 45 mins at 350.
