I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Strawberry and Apple Cast Iron Skillet Pie

We loved that last recipe, Cast Iron Pan Apple Pie, so much that we couldn't wait to try another! This one was pretty awesome too! And the best part about these pies is that there is little to no leakage because the side of the crust holds everything in.

Sliced apples and halved strawberries totalling 5 cups (I used 4 small apples and almost a whole pint of strawberries)
5 tbsps sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch 
1 tsp cinnamon 
1/4 cup butter
Short crust pastry rolled to 12" circle
Egg wash
Sugar to sprinkle
8-9" cast iron pan

Roll out the pastry dough to 12" and lay in the skillet leaving the excess to hang over the sides.

Cut the apples and strawberries and toss with the sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon. Gently place in the pan.

Dot with blobs of butter then fold up the sides towards the middle of the pie. 

Beat an egg with a little water and brush over the crust and sprinkle with some sugar.

Bake at 400F for 35-45 minutes.

Warning:  These pies can become habit-forming!
