There are different pie crust options including the classic flour and lard crust as well as cookie based crusts. These are very different bases for any pie, and result in substantially different tastes. A flour and lard pie provides a flavorful and firm textured base that is not sweet but lightly buttery (if made with butter). It smoothes the flavors of berries and is a wonderful complement to them in a pie. A cookie based crust has an almost, well, cookie like texture, crumbling in the mouth and often being quite sweet. This type of crust provides a strong contrast to the berries in a pie, which can often be quite delicious. So either crust can work well; it just depends on the flavor that you prefer.Try this fresh strawberry pie for a wonderful summery dessert to feed your family. The photos on the site help illustrate the process, and the instructions are easy to follow. The pie is not at all difficult to make. It does benefit greatly from a thorough chilling in the fridge, so keep that in mind when you make it. Four hours in the fridge is not too long and overnight is even better. Make the whipping cream just before serving. Consider adding some fresh grated orange rind to the whipping cream or a full tablespoon of vanilla. These flavors complement strawberries beautifully.
