Baked strawberry pie with a delectable buttery crust. Take it along to picnics and potlucks, because you’ll be the most popular person there!
Can someone please tell me how it is already spring!?! When did that happen! I feel like I just woke up one day and it was warm and sunny and the end of March. I am not complaining though, can’t argue with sunshine!
Despite all the gorgeous weather we’ve been having in Austin, seems like between work and the recent SXSW festival, I have barely had time to enjoy it. In between errands and meetings I always try to sneak away for 5 or 10 minutes to walk my walk dog and catch some rays. All that vitamin D sure does put some more pep in my step!
Also, I would like to ask, when did I become my mother and talk about how quickly time flies and how I love taking walks? For real though, it so weird how people tell you you’ll grow up but you never really believe it… until one day, you’re like “oh wait, I sound exactly like my parents!” Seriously. It is a bit of a weird feeling when that happens. Please tell me I am not the only almost 30-something experiencing these types of feelings? Haha, at least it makes for a good laugh!
As I continue on my pie and tart making adventure this year, I always stumble over whether to get super creative or go more classic like my last steak & ale pie. I decided for classic again for today’s recipe, I figure learning the basics is the first step in becoming an expert!
Besides, all that sunshine makes for some very fine strawberries and I figure it is best to just let them do their thing in this pie with minimal invention. Plus, I totally latticed (is that a word?) the crust. Yes, lattice! Do it! It was way easier than I thought!
Most people go no-bake with strawberry pie, but really, give this baked strawberry pie a try. It’s absolutely amazing!
