Source of Recipe
List of Ingredients
1 ¼ cups flour
good ½ - scant 2/3 cup butter or margarine
2 – 3 tbs water
Approx 2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
2 – 3 apples
good 1/3 cup sugar
scant ¼ cup brown sugar
2 tbs potato starch or cornstarch
1 egg yolk for brushing
Put the flour in a bowl. Cut the fat in pieces and finely crumble that in the flour. Add water and quickly work the dough together. Leave in a cold place for 1 hour.
Slice the strawberries. Peel, core and cut the apples in pieces. Mix sugar, brown sugar and starch and mix this with strawberries and apples.
Roll out 2/3 of the dough to a round plate and put in a pie pan, diameter approx 9”. Even it around the edges. Roll out the rest to a lid as big as the pie pan and cut some holes in it to let out the steam. Fill the pie crust and put the lid on top. Press together around the edges and brush with egg yolk.
Bake the pie in the middle of the oven at 400F for about 45 minutes or until lid has taken color and apples are tender.
