There is a fresh fruit stand near us and I absolutely enjoy visiting it and supporting local farmers. This past week my boyfriend’s mom was nice enough to bring over a huge tray of several cartons of strawberries. These were definitely delicious strawberries; however, throughout the busy week, they weren’t eaten fast enough. So, towards the end, I had to think quickly and decided to make a Strawberry Pie dessert with them in order to salvage the strawberries and put them towards good use!
I’ve baked many simple and complex pies in the last few years, but I feel like no matter the filling, the crust is actually more of the crucial part. I found this pie dough recipe from an earlier post, Classic Sour Cherry Pie With Lattice Crust. I basically made the same pie, but just substituted my own recipe for the strawberry fruit filling. This crust is a perfect blend of flakey-goodness and always hold together well.
Anyway, whether you like strawberries or not, use whatever pie filling you’d like and the pie dough recipe from the Sour Cherry Pie recipe and you won’t be disappointed!
Happy Sunday and hope you had a great weekend!
