Spring is here! Finally! I am ready to plant some gardens, play outside, smell the fresh cut grass…all of it!
We are still on spring break and going on adventures here and there.
When we got done there we went to a little diner for lunch and then headed home to some dessert!
Strawberries are everywhere right now, we all love them, so I figured a strawberry pie would be a huge hit, and it was!
Perfect Strawberry Pie
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick sliced butter
6 tbs ice water
1 1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
3 tbs cornstarch
3 oz strawberry gelatin
1 quart strawberries
Start by making the pie crust;
Combine the flour and salt, then cut in the butter using a pastry cutter or in my case, my hands
Form into a ball and cover with parchment paper. Refrigerator two hours or up to over night
Gently roll out the dough and put it in the pie pan. This only makes a bottom, of you want top and bottom crust double the recipe.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Use a fork to put some vent holes on the crust
Cover crust with foil and pour some rice in it to weigh it down
While the crust is in the oven start on the filling.
Combine the water, cornstarch, and sugar. Over medium heat cook themnuntil they get thick
