Let Them Eat PIE!
A few posts ago I wrote about Red Velvet Cake (RVC), and since then I've noticed a lot of visitors who were finding my blog after seaching for RVC on Google. I don't know why there's such interest. Was there a magazine article or is it because Valentine's Day is approach and people are looking for a pretty red dessert? If it's the latter, I have another recommendation that's a perfect Valentine's dessert.
I'm including my recipe for Strawberry Pie which I happen to think is a great treat especially this time of year. We had some lovely Florida strawberries last week. If you can still get the berries at a reasonable price, this is a tasty treat for your sweeties.
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon red food color
5 tablespoons cornstarch
7 ounces 7-Up
fresh strawberries (quart)
baked pie crust
Mix the first four ingredients & cook until thick.
Place the strawberries in crust & pour glaze over them.
Garnish with whipped cream & refrigerate.
