The verdict is in

I finally baked my first pie. I followed a *baking for Dummies* simple receipe. I think I should have keep it in for another 10 minutes for the crust to be flakier but the strawberries are pretty soggy. I may have used too much sugar and flour because the inside of the pie isn’t firm. We tasted 2 pieces *with a ton of whipped cream* and it was ok but maybe after a night in the fridge it will solidify and the strawberries won’t be so tart.








Next time I’ll attempt a graham cracker crust or oreo cookie crust. This pie was a disaster, too soggy, the crust wasn’t cooked enough and it ended up in the garbage disposal. *Boo*
