Plate lickin’ good!
Thanks Sunflower Market for offering strawberries at only 88 cents a pound! I bought 6. Why not? There was no limit, and really if I had more time I would have done like the lady next to me and bought 3 cases.
What can’t you do with red delicious juicy strawberries? I really only had one thing in mind though. Fresh Strawberry Pie.
Mini Lattice Top Pies.
I have a good friend. Katie is her name. She introduces me to all sorts of recipes, gadgets, and ingredients. We bake and cook as often as possible, and if we can’t bake with each other, we share what we’ve created. It’s not unusual to find baked goods on my door step in the morning, which are then devoured by me, and if I have to share, with my hungry pack of wolves.
Because we work so well together, I suggested that we make an entire dessert buffet for my brother’s wedding (click here to see it). She agreed and basically organized it all, and I did what she said. She’s one of those friends, when she gives you advice, you take it.
One item we made for the wedding were Mini Lattice Top Pies. We needed a pie crust that held up to a few standards to make them a success. The criteria were: it had to taste fantastic, be flaky, stand up to lots of handling, and be made a few days ahead of time. This one met all the criteria and then some. Every time we would compare it to any other pie crust this one won.
