Strawberry Pie

strawberrypie3smAbout 15 years ago, my grandfather and I took a pie making class. Still to this day it is such a great memory of something the two of us did together. I feel like cooking is in my bones, both my grandparents are great cooks, and even to this day my grandpa will tell me about a new recipe he tired for brioche for a french toast recipe he was testing. strawberry edited1sm

I love going to the farmers markets this time of year, beginning to see each week what is now in season. Fresh strawberries for me always feels like the true beginning of summer.

Lay to crust of the pie, cut small slits for the air to be released, and brush with the beaten egg. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350 degrees, and bake for another 45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the filling bubbles slightly.
