As you may have seen in my Instagram Stories I have made this pie a week ago ! It was actually mother day in France and I wanted to make my mum favorite dessert !
I have been very impressed with how well this pie turned out ! We all loved it the strawberries were delicious !
I have loved it so much that I decided to share the recipe with you !
I haven’t made the pastry dough myself because I was very short on time I went the morning to the farm market to get the strawberries because I wanted to have them as fresh as possible ! But if you want to prepare it yourself any pastry dough will be perfect !
I have made a « Crème pâtissière » which is a deliciously vanilla cream that we have very often in the french cake ! I think it is called pastry cream in english according to Google Translate !
Now here is the recipe :
Ingredients : - 25 cl of Milk - 1 egg - 30 g of flour - 3 packs of Vanilla sugar (21g in total) - 20 g of sugar - 500 g of strawberry Steps : 1- Cook the pastry dough for 25 minutes at 180C° -> While the pastry is cooking let's prepare the cream 2- Boil the milk with 7 g of Vanilla sugar 3- In an other pot mix the egg with the rest of the Vanilla sugar and the regular sugar 4- Add the flour 5- Poor the boiling milk on the preparation 6- Let the preparation boil and let it cool for 2 minutes 7- Poor the cream on the pastry and add the strawberries
Please let me know if you are giving a go to this recipe ! You can male this cream for any fruity pie ! I would also love to see pictures of your cake !
