Strawberry Pie

Yes, I know it’s not anywhere near summer, but I had a surplus of strawberries that needed to be used. I found this recipe at Mansurov Photography and it caught my attention.

The recipe calls for egg-separating, which is always a bit of a pain, but I managed.

Add the 3/4 cup sugar, butter, baking soda, vanilla extract, flour, salt.

Press dough into the pan and place the sliced the strawberries on top.

Whip the egg whites with the remaining sugar and carefully place on top of strawberries. Take the leftover dough and grate it on top until it covers the whole pie. Bake!

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 14 tbsp. of softened butter
  • 3/4 cups of sugar+1/2 cup
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 Tbsp of vanilla
  • 1/2 Teasp of baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  •  10-15 large strawberries

Directions:

Separate egg yolks from whites. Grind yolks with 3/4 cups of sugar. Add softened butter,
baking soda, vanilla, a pinch of salt and flour. Mix all of the ingredients by spoon and work the dough with your hands. The dough should be soft to the touch but not sticky.
Divide it into 2 portions, one portion should be a little bigger than the another one.
Place the bigger one evenly on the bottom of the baking dish. Put the smaller portion of the dough into the freezer to harden.
 
Slice strawberries and lay them on top of the dough.

Whisk egg whites with 1/2 cup of sugar until white peaks form. Using a spatula or a table spoon evenly spread the ready mixture on top of the fruits.

Take out the remaining dough from the freezer and using a grater top the fruits with it.

Bake for an hour at 350F and let it cool for at least another hour before you serve it.
