This just SCREAMS summer!
THIS RECIPE MAKES THREE PIE CRUSTS!!!( I always just freeze the other two in balls for later)
- 4 cups flour
- 1-3/4 cup lard or shortening
- 3 T sugar
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1/2 water
In large mixing bowl combine flour, lard/shortening, sugar and salt. Blend with pastry blender, fingers or fork until crumbly. Mix together water and egg in a small bowl. Blend egg and water mixture with flour until it sticks together. Separate into 3 equal pieces. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to use or freeze in ball or disc to use later.
Blend together the crumb ingredients and set aside.
In another bowl mix the flour, sugar and cornstarch together and coat strawberries with it until it is absorbed by the strawberries/juice. Fill unbaked pie crust with strawberry mixture. Pinch off pea sized chunks of topping and sprinkle on the top of the pie. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes and 350-375 for another 40. You may want to cover the crust with foil for the first 20-40 minutes if you don't like your crust to brown. (I don't because I am lazy and actually prefer the crust to be a bit dark). Let cool and top with fresh whipped cream! YUMMO!

Wow, it's been awhile since I actually TYPED a post.... LOL! Are you missing reading things? Are you enjoying the videos more? Less?
I thought I would do a quick post about a what I use for a natural eye makeup remover. First off, eye makeup remover is RIDICOULSLY overpriced. Baby oil is a cheap alternative.....BUT some people are sensitive to all the extra junk they put into baby oil. Baby oil is essentially just mineral oil (petrolium based) that has been perfumed to smell good. So there are some that seek a more natural recipe. I also tend to find PURE oil a bit too heavy for makeup remover.
Enter: Natural Eye Makeup Remover!
What you will need:
In the travel bottle put 1 T. olive oil and 1/2 T. baby soap. Fill the remaining space with water. DONE! Yep, it is that easy (and cheap!). You will have to shake it before you use it since oil and water don't stay emulsified very long after being mixed.
I then liberally apply it to a cotton round and wipe off all my eye make up before I cleanse my face for the evening.
Let me know what you thing of it.
