Strawberries galore!

We spent some time this weekend in Southern Alberta visiting friends.  Many times in the past we have gone to pick berries while visiting, and this time was no different from before.  We took the kids early one morning to Broxburn Vegetable and Cafe, and we were not disappointed.  The berries were plentiful, large and so sweet.  We were able to pick two pails full of berries, and a few may have also ended up in our bellies!  I wanted to bring some berries home for snacking, but I was also very keen to bake with them.  I still had some pie dough left in the freezer so I went looking for a recipe.  I wanted a recipe that was for more than just strawberries and I also wanted a streusel top.  After looking through many recipes I found one that looked great.  The recipe called for 6 cups of strawberries, but I ended up using 4 cups of strawberries and one cup each of raspberries and blueberries.  In the end the pie turned out even better than I had envisioned.  It was sweet from the berries and covered in a crumble top that was crunchy from the oven.  Served with vanilla ice cream, it was pure deliciousness.  Find the Streusel-topped strawberry pie here, remembering that I used my grandma’s pie dough for the crust.

Happy baking,
Sara
