Here it is… (drum roll, please) our Top Secret Disney Recipe 🙂 Disney Flo’s V8 Cafe Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie!!
This Pie is SO amazing… it’s totally worth the effort of finding Rhubarb at this time of year! Which was a little bit of a trick and after searching many frozen food sections, I ended up finding a friend that had frozen some from last summer! Many thanks to Lora Lee for sharing her Rhubarb 🙂
