Pink Strawberry Pie

It's no secret that I love the color pink. From pink clothes to pink drinks, I'm all about it. So when I stumbled across a photo of a pink pie I was absolutely inspired. So today, I'm sharing my recipe for pink strawberry pie!

- 2 Pie Crusts (Pre-made or made from scratch)
- 1/3 cup of brown sugar
- 1/3 cup of white sugar
- 1/4 cup corn starch
-  6 cups of strawberries cut in fourths
-  1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- pink food coloring of your choice
- 9.5-inch pie pan

Step One: Dye your pie crust
Take your pie crust and roll into a ball, add a few drops of pink food color. Knead the color into the dough by pulling it apart and pushing it back together. Repeat this process until the dough has turned a light pink. Roll out one of your pie crusts and place it in your pan. Set the other to the side.

Step Two: Make your pie filling 
In a large bowl combine strawberries, both sugars, corn starch, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt. Stir until strawberries are completely coated. Pour contents into the pie crust. Do not pour in excess juice if you have it as it will just make the pie soupy.

Step Three: Making & placing lattice. 
Roll out your second pie crusts and use a knife or pizza cutter to cut into even strips. Aim for about 2 inches. Place about five strips across your pie horizontally. Try to use every other strip. Take your remaining strips and weave through vertically in an alternating pattern. Cut away excess dough.

Step Four: Baking
Apply an egg wash and bake at 400 degrees for twenty minutes then at 375 degrees for twenty more minutes. Let cool and enjoy!

And that's it! I've really been enjoying posting fun recipes, so I hope you enjoy this one too!

Until Next Time,
