- In a food processor, pulse the flours, sugar, shortening, butter and salt until the butter and shortening are the size of small peas.
- Whisk the egg, vinegar and water together in a large glass measuring cup.
- Pour your wet ingredients into the food processor and pulse until the dough just comes together.
- Dump the ball of dough onto a piece of parchment or plastic wrap. Divide the dough into two equal disks, wrap and chill the dough disks for at least 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes, roll out 1 disk of dough large enough to fit into your 9” pie dish.
- Put dish in refrigerator to chill for 15 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Mix the rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, tapioca, flour, zest and juice of lemon, dash of cinnamon, and vanilla in a large bowl.
- Pour into your chilled crust.
- Dot the top of the filling with the butter.
- Make an egg wash by whisking together the egg white and 1 tsp. water.
- Roll out the other disk of dough.
- Brush edges of pie crust with egg white wash.
- Place the second dough over the filling and crimp the edges to seal. You can also make a lattice top for this pie, if you'd like!
- Brush with egg white wash and garnish with coarse decorating sugar.
- Protect the edge of the crust with foil and bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes.
- Decrease temperature to 375 degrees F and bake for an additional 45 to 50 minutes, or until the filling starts bubbling. Higher altitude will take 450 degrees F and 400 degrees F respectively.
- Let the pie cool completely before serving.
