This is a terrific all-purpose pie crust that you can use during the holiday season (or all year long) for your single-crust pie. This can be prepapred 2 days ahead of use; simply cover and refrigerate.
I grew up amid the citrus groves of Southern California in the '50s. On summer afternoons we kids would take a nap in the lemon grove, sun warming us, bees buzzing overhead. This pie tastes like my dreams there!
The easiest way to serve "Apple Pie" without the fuss. I Love the rustic presentation. Ina's recipe, inspired by George Germon and Johanne Killeen Cucina Simpatica. Prep time is total time including chilling the dough.
A family recipe I've made for years for dozens of people. Only one hasnt liked it sofar. Coconut floats to the top and crisps, while pie makes its own very good crust. Serve while warm, it will fall apart if cut hot. (oh, and use flaked/shredded sweet coconut in the bag)
Amazing pie, from the cover of Bon Apetite Magazine, April 2007. From their R.S.V.P. column. This recipe comes from Jamie's Restaurant in Pensacola, FL. I served it at Memorial Day family get-together, and everyone said it was amazing. I agree. A bit time consuming to put together, but SO worth it! Time to make is an estimate (I didn't really keep track.) Freezing times are included in the "passive cooking time".
This pie is simple but so good! Use fresh red ripe strawberries only for this recipe. Plan ahead the pie needs to chill for a minimum of 3 hours before serving. You can also make this in a 9-inch glass baking dish. Prep time includes chilling time, cooking time is for the crust.
This is one of those things that turn out wonderfully with little effort.
GREAT for weeknight desserts or when you need something nice and don't have much time to make it in!
Posting so we have access to the shopping list!
You will never have soggy crusts again if you make your pie like this. You can make this and freeze it for using later. UPDATE: I just finished doing it in the microwave, so much easier than standing over a pot stirring. It took about 15 minutes, stirring after the first 5 min and every couple minutes until thick and clear looking. I added the cornstarch mixture after the first 5 minutes.
