Strawberry pie and a Promo Code


So last weekend was Super Pi (3.1415blahblah) day, did you make a pie? I always mean to but forget every year. (Well, okay, I really just don’t want to mess with pie crust but…..)  This year the kids asked me a week or so before if I would make a pie on Pi day. Instead of cringing like usual, I said yes with a big cheery smile. Why?

Because I have the DoughEZ!! So why not make a pie and keep my counter tops clean too?!  So I did. You would have thought my family has never had sweets before as that pie was gone the next day!

So here I go. Pie dough on the DoughEZ all ready for rolling out.

Roll out the pie dough to match one of the circles the best you can that fits your pie pan with some room to spare.

Look at that!! I almost got a perfect circle!! woo hoo

I laid the pie pan on top of the dough, closed up the DoughEZ and flipped it over so the pie dough would fall right into the pie pan.

Look how the DoughEZ just peels right off the pie crust dough! No mess at all!

Flute the edges of the pie crust and then baked it before filling it.

Before baking it. I wasn’t fast enough to get a picture after it was baked and topped with Whipped Cream.

So are you wanting your own DoughEZ now? Well I have a Promo code (good for only the month of March)  for you to get $10.00 off your order. Promo code has been extended till after Mother’s Day, 5/11/15!!

Just enter "ambersantics" all lower case for $10.00 off your order. And to help you even more, I have placed a button (Precision Dough Rolling System) that will take you straight to their order page on the side of my blog.

And now for the recipes that had my family asking me to make another Strawberry Pie soon (like the next day!)

I got the Strawberry Pie recipe from With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart. She has a link to print the recipe.

Strawberry Pie

3 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 cups sugar (It is a SWEET dessert, you might want to reduce the sugar.  We like it sweet)
1 1/2 cups water
3 oz box strawberry Jell-O
2 cups sliced strawberries

Pre-bake a 10" pie shell.

Line bottom with the sliced strawberries
Combine cornstarch, sugar and water in small saucepan.  Bring to a boil and simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened.  Add the Jell-O and stir until dissolved.  Pour over the strawberries and refrigerate until set.
Serve with whipped cream

I used The Gracious Wife recipe for my pie crust.

No Fail Pie Crust

3/4 cup shortening
2 1/14 cups flour
1/2 cup cold water

In a large mixing bowl, cut shortening and flour together. A pastry blender is preferred but a fork works with success too.

Then add water and stir with a fork until it forms a ball. If there’s still flour at the end, add water, a teaspoon at a time. You want the dough to be stiff, not sticky, so be careful not to add too much water.

Divide in half. If you’re only using half, you can freeze the other half now. Let the dough chill* in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before rolling out.

Poke dough with fork to prevent air pockets and bake for 10 mins at 350* or until the crust is golden.

*Oops! I just realized I never let my dough chill but it still rolled out great and tasted awesome!
