Old style strawberry pie - Gammaldags jordgubbspaj

Gammaldags jordgubbspaj

Make a tempting pie from summer’s lovely strawberries! Frozen berries are also fine to use.

1 pie, approx 8 servings

Pie dough:
1 cup flour
3 tbsps sugar
3½ oz butter or margarine
2 tbsps water

4 cups fresh strawberries
or 14 oz frozen, thawed berries
scant ¼ to 1/3 cup sugar
good 1/3 cup water
1½ to 2 tbsps Maizena or cornflour

For serving:
whipped cream or vanilla ice cream

Mix flour and sugar. Cut the fat in pieces. Chop it together with the flour to a crumbly mixture. Add water and quickly work to a dough. Press it out in a pie pan, diameter approx 9 inches, and bake it in the oven at 200 to 225C/gasmark 6 to 7 for 15 to 20 minutes.

Trim the strawberries for the filling and cut them in pieces. Mash half of the berries and put them in a saucepan. Blend in sugar, water and Maizena and boil for a couple of minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Put remaining strawberries in the pie shell and pour the boiled strawberries on top.

Serve the pie with whipped cream or ice cream.
