April 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 152

When my children were young, we use to go strawberry picking. I think they ate more than they put in the containers. We would always freeze plenty, so we could enjoy them in the winter months.

Strawberry Petal Pie

10 ounces fresh strawberries (cut up, sprinkled with sugar) 5 1/2 tbsp cornstarch 3 egg yolks,(beaten)3/4 cup sugar 1 tbsp butter 1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp vanilla 3 cups milk 9 inch baked pie crust.

Press berries through sieve to make a puree.In sauce pan mix strawberry puree with 1 tbsp cornstarch.Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.Remove from heat and set aside.

In a medium sauce pan, combine remaining cornstarch, sugar, and salt. Add milk, stirring until smooth.

Over medium heat bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil about 1 minute and remove from the heat.Stir a small amount of mixture into egg mixture to temper the eggs.Return egg mixture to sauce pan, mixing well.Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute and remove from the heat.

Stir in butter and vanilla. Alternate the strawberry mixture and custard mixture into the pie shell. With a spatula or knife, make a decorative swirl. Decorate with topping.

Topping: 1 pint strawberries 2 tbsp confectionary sugar 1 cup heavy cream 1/2 tsp vanilla Wash and hull strawberries. Cut in half, length wise. Beat cream with sugar. Spread half of the cream over the pie. Arrange strawberry petals over the cream. Put rest of cream in pastry bag and decorate. Or make a small pile right in the center of the pie.

Another good strawberry pie is...
