Strawberry Pie

Ingredients

  • 2 (9 inch) pie crust 
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour (or cornstarch)
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup water
Step one:  pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
Step two: clean and cut the strawberries up into 4 pieces each.
Step three: in a large mixing bowl, combine strawberries with sugar and spices.
Step four: in a small bowl, whisk together flour and water. Gradually stir the mixture into the strawberry mixture. Put the mixture into the fridge for a half-hour to an hour.
Step five: place 1 pie crust into a glass pie dish.  Pour mixture into pastry shell.  Cover with the other pie crust. 
Step six:  beat one egg in a small bowl. Baste the crust with the egg (makes the crust golden brown). If you want, you can cover the edges of the crust with aluminum foil for the first 30 minutes of baking so it doesn't get too crispy.
Step seven: bake pie for 45 minutes or until crust is browning. Remove and cool for several hours.
Step eight: Serve each slice of pie with a dollop of whipped cream.

Rebel Baker's Note: I made this pie back in October for my friend Anya's Game-Night Party.  The party was a really fun time and the pie was a smash hit, literally -- next time I'll at more starch to it (it kinda collapsed when you cut into it!).  I just recently got my pie dish back in exchange for borrowing a dress of hers for the Ellis Hospital Ball I attended with Patrick.  I don't think I've hung out with Anya since then!! I miss her (and Courtney!).
