Strapple Pie

I've been craving pie (mind out of the gutter) and thought I'd try my hand at baking one. I got the basics of what I thought I'd need from the grocery store a couple nights ago and figured I'd give it a shot this coming weekend.
KJ has been under the weather and we decided she needed a day at home today to rest and get well. So, after I'd done everything to make her as comfortable as possible this morning, I commenced to making pie. I will admit I jumped online before I started to get a few tips...I didn't go in completely blind.

Two of my favorite fruits are apples and strawberries, so I decided I'd combine them into one pie. Here's how it went:

Granny Smiths

Sliced Fresh Strawberries

Lemons (for juice)

Diced apples


Strawberries mixed with Lemon Juice and Sugar

Apples mixed with Lemon Juice and Sugar


Layer of Apples

Then Strawberries

And more Apples

Some Butter and a bit of the Strawberry Juice

Then the top Crust (with vents sliced in -- web tip)

Foil to protect the crust edge (another tip from web)

About an hour later.

Time to burn off the calories....
Happy Training,

Maria -- It was easy...and delicious. Half of it's gone already and I don't expect the rest to last more than a day or two.
Only change I'll make next time is adding some flower to the filling to thicken it up a bit. Found that tip online afterwards...

Wow, I'm very impressed! I've never dared try making a pie from scratch before. Maybe doing an iron distance tri will give me the courage :-)

We should be careful and perceptive in all the information we give. We should be signally aware in giving information that we would not dream up of following ourselves. Most of all, we ought to refrain from giving counsel which we don't imitate when it damages those who woo assume us at our word.
