Preparing a Delicious Strawberry Pie

There are many things to be considered when you make a pie. First of all, make sure that all the ingredients are cold. The butter should be cubed and it is best if you could chill the flour before you make the pie. Use ice water while you prepare the pie crust. If you use warm ingredients, the result will be a tough tart crust. This is a step that should not be ignored. Plus whenever you use fruit, make sure that it is well ripened. You can make a nice flavorful pie, if you use the fruits that are seasonal, especially when you are making a strawberry pie. Listed below are two different ways you could prepare the strawberry pie.
