Strawberry Vanilla Crumble Pie

Remember the strawberry madness week? Well this was another dish that I made during that week. It was ........ *dreaming face*.

Just look at that bubbly strawberry juice dripping out of the pan! And the smell of the kitchen when you open the oven to check on it, make you wanna eat it as soon as it comes out!

Drizzled a slice with some choc ganache. oimicorasonnn. *drool*

Another recipe from Whisk Kid, she just makes me salivate everytime I look at her post, and run to the store and get all the ingredients. Another easy one, have fun trying!

Pie Crust
6 Tablespoon (85g) butter
2 Tablespoon (30g) shortening
1 cup (142g) flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoon cold water, more if needed
  1. Cube the butter and place it and the shortening in the freezer for fifteen minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the frozen butter and shortening, and press with your fingers (or a pastry blender or a fork or a pair of knives. Its easier with forks!) until it is the texture of coarse meal. Add the water a little at a time and mix/knead just until incorporated.
  3. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate (not freezer okay) at least 30 minutes. (Tip: You can start on your crumble while waiting for this).
  4. After 30 minutes, place the dough on the counter to soften for 5 minutes. On a well-floured surface, roll the dough until it is large enough to fit in a 9" pie tin - about 11-12" in diameter. As you roll, check often to see that the dough is not sticking to the counter and apply more flour as needed.
  5. Roll the dough around your rolling pin and lay it in the pie tin. Form a decorative boarder, if you wish. Place in freezer.
Crumble (which was adapted from Nicole at Sweet Peony)
1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup (71g)  flour
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 Tablespoon (60g) butter, frozen and cubed
1/4 cup (25g) oats
  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and press until the texture of coarse crumbs. Place in freezer briefly while you prepare the pie filling.
Strawberry Vanilla Pie Filling
3/8 cup (74g) sugar
Scrapings of one vanilla bean/ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup (35g) flour
2 Tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
500 grams strawberries (or around that..I used like 450, the other 50 grams went to my tummy..)
  1. Preheat the oven to 175degrees Celsius.
  2. Combine the sugar and vanilla in a bowl. (if using vanilla bean - press with fingers to incorporate)
  3. Stir in the flour, cornstarch and salt.
  4. When well-mixed, add the berries and toss to coat. Pour into frozen crust.
  5. Top with crumble. Bake until you see juices bubbling through the crumble in the center, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Don't you just wanna eat that???DON'T YOU?
