Strawberry pie

Strawberry pie

 

I finally take the time to write down the recipe of my strawberry pie topped with mint on a vanilla cream filling!

 

Since I’m a kid, I’m always trilled to see the first batch of Belgian strawberries arriving. Already then, I wouldn’t understand when I was asked to eat “at least a slice of bread” before being allowed to absorb my 250 grams of strawberries in a puree or dipped in sugar as a lunch!

 

So you’ll understand that now, when spring is there, a strawberry pie is for me a must! But in a plant based version of course 🙂 I topped it with mint to bring a bit of freshness and peps.

 

 

The crust is a biscuit crust, so you must be careful not to over cook it in order to avoid it to be too hard when you eat it. But it’s a good one for this pie because it stays firm and doesn’t fold with the weight of the cream and the strawberries.
