Recipe Tip: Don’t Use A lot of Sugar

I decided to cut out a lot of sugar for this pie, because the strawberries are naturally sweet on their own. The granny smith apples were a great replacement for rhubarb because they gave the pie a really nice balance of sweet and tart.

It was so delicious and there weren’t any leftovers. Recipe success!

STRAWBERRY APPLE PIE

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups peeled & thinly sliced granny smith apples
  • 2-1/2 cups larger cut strawberries
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 of one lemon, juice
  • 1 egg white beaten
  • 2 rolls of pre-made pie crust
  • Wheaties or other flaky cereal

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place one of the pre-made pie crusts into the pie pan.
  3. Sprinkle Wheaties to lightly cover the bottom of the crust. This helps prevent the bottom crust from becoming too soggy and no one will notice that they’re there.
  4. Mix all the ingredients (except the egg white) together in a bowl.
  5. Add the filling on top of the Wheaties.
  6. Place the other pie crust on top of the filling. I made a Lattice Crust.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes.
  8. Decrease oven temperature to 375 degrees and brush the crust with the egg white.
  9. Bake for an additional 35-40 minutes until filling is bubbly and the crust is golden.
  10. Let cool for about 30 minutes before serving to allow juices to set.
