It's still strawberry season here ,,at Nana's House..
The gardens are blooming enough now to pick a few roses..matriarca..snapdragons and sweet peas..although not prolific..by any means the snaps and the sweet peas.. I still pick a few. I just can't help myself.
The clematis are prolific though!
The front fence is blooming it's head off.. and we can't walk through the front arbor..I know that's not a good thing..but what can I do?
The others are starting to come into bloom and I wish they could last all summer ..like everything else..
I bought some fresh berries.. and I had some apples so I Googled Apple Strawberry pies..
The main reasons..?
The berries and this cast iron pie pan..that I spotted months ago..on one of my very favorite blogs..
There is nothing not to fall in love with there.
It all starts with the marriage of gorgeous photography and Amelia..and then every subject:)
It's where I buy my Christmas Ornament patterns from..Anyway she showed this pan once..and I already have such a fondness for whatever cast iron I own from my mom's on..I thought why not?
My daughters friends were visiting parents in VT..so I placed my order months ago..and they just brought it back..from Amazon.com.
It is a GREAT pan.heavy..but GREAT.
The dough stayed so nicely put..it baked well
It was a pleasure to pull out of the oven..
The recipe is simple and wonderful.
The dough..I must confess..I made this pie the morning we were going to Noah's 6th birthday party so I used my grocery stores dough.
And the recipe?
You can find it right here..
Apple Strawberry Pie
I humbly think you could safely add it to your pie making repertoire:)♥
