Thanks to everyone for all your thoughtful comments on my last post. I must admit that finals time at school is keeping me from responding intelligently to each of you. I also recognize that I must have been in a sour mood yesterday! Yikes!
To make up for it, I’m posting a sweet recipe today. We’re having a little celebration tomorrow in the science department and I volunteered to bring a pie. I’ve entered a berry pie contest in two weeks, so I’m testing out this recipe on the crowd.
- dough for 2 crusted pie
- 1 1/2 quarts hulled, chopped strawberries
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 heaping Tbsp cornstarch
- pinch salt
Roll out the bottom crust and line the pie pan with it. Combine berries, sugar, cornstarch and salt in a bowl and stir to combine. Pour into the bottom crust. Roll out the remaining crust, slice into strips and arrange in a lattice pattern. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or more until the filling is bubbly and crust is lightly browned.
