Strawberry Pie

My big helper!

Ok, so it doesn't look that great. However, it was SO AWESOME!!! Obviously could have used more dough on top. Will make it prettier next time. This pie was eaten in about a 24 hour period. It was THAT good =)

It still looks like it tasted good though! Recipe please? :)

Just any pie dough recipe will do. The filling is 5 cups cut strawberries, 1/4 cup flour, 2/3 to 1 cup sugar. bake at 425 for 10 minutes, then 350 for 35-40 minutes until brown.

I'm thinking of switching out a little bit of the sugar for brown sugar next time to see what it does!

That looks delish, Kate! And everything always tastes better when little hands help make it :)

As for the sugar...if you sub in brown, I would assume that it would go more gooey, and the colour would take on more of a caramel colour. You could always try raw sugar, and you can sub with whole wheat flour! I've been doing that a lot lately, whenever a recipe calls for flour I use ww instead of white. It sometimes gives a bit of a "nutty" flavour though, so I guess it might change the taste of the pie a bit...
I'm surprised it lasted through a whole 24hrs! It wouldn't stand a chance in my house ;) Which is why I haven't been baking quite so often lately!

I might be ok with a more gooey center. this one was super liquidy. Good, but too liquidy for me I think.

I use whole wheat flour a lot too. Love it!

I've been trying not to bake desserts too much either, nothing ever lasts. Last time I made cookies I froze some of them, hoping to make them last longer... instead I ate frozen cookies. OOPS.
