Strawberry pie

This recipe makes enough dough for one 23 cm (9 inch) covered pie. Once the water has been added, the dough should be worked as little as possible, to minimize toughness in the finished crust.

  1. Whisk 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of sugar together in a deep bowl.
  2. Cut the butter into small pieces and add to the flour mixture.
  3. Using a pastry blender or two butter knives, cut the butter into the flour until the butter is in small pea-sized pieces.
  4. Add 95 ml or 1/3 cup of cold water by cutting the water into the flour-butter mixture with the edge of a rubber spatula until it is evenly moistened and will hold together when pressed.
  5. Form the dough into a ball with your hands, kneading in any loose flour. This should be done as quickly as possible to avoid melting the butter in the dough.
  6. Chill the dough for 10-20 minutes. Meanwhile prepare the filling.
  7. For the filling, clean the strawberries and remove the leaves.
  8. Cut the strawberries in halves (or quarters for larger berries).
  9. Add 170 g of sugar, cornstarch, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
  10. Cut the dough evenly in half.
  11. On a lightly floured board, roll each half out until it will cover a 20 cm pie dish, with about 2 cm overhang.
  12. Lay the bottom crust in the pie dish, ensuring that there are no gaps between the crust and the bottom of the dish.
  13. Fill the crust with the pie filling.
  14. Place the top crust on top, leaving equal overhang on all sides. Cut the overhang to about 2 cm all around the pie.
  15. Working around the pie, hold the bottom and top crust overhangs together and tuck the combined overhang into the pie dish behind the bottom crust. With the forefinger and thumb of each hand, pinch the ridge formed by the tuck into a decorative edge, or press this ridge with a fork.
  16. Brush the top of the pie with milk, and sprinkle with sugar. Cut vents in the top crust so that steam can escape.
  17. Bake on the lower-middle rack of an oven at 220 °C for 30 minutes to set the crust, then at 180 °C for 30 minutes to cook the filling.
