The third and final pie in the Life of Pie Daring Bakers Challenge. This one was my preference among the four on offer this month. It was pretty, and I wanted to make the pretty pie. I just love red, and I love it in food (as you may have noticed). I couldn't go past it.
Strawberries are painfully expensive right now, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try the strawberry version anyway.
My lattice is really simple. How well you cream the butter and sugar determines how rigid the dough is. I went for a lighter texture, and hence the dough was super delicate. Attempts at a fancy lattice were in vain, so I went with basic instead. I kept the strips thinner than most because I prefer the look of a dainty lattice. I adorned the centre with some pastry strawberries
