((I will humbly state that I think mine looks better, Martha))
what??? I thought that's what bloggers were supposed to do...have mental battles with Martha Stewart. no? oye.
Oh, hi! My best friend Kelley sent me a text a little over a month ago telling me I needed to get the new Martha Stewart Living because there were some yummy pie recipes in there. That's all it takes for me to
speed calmly head to Target to pick up an issue of Martha Stewart Living. She mentioned this Strawberry Lemonade Pie and I immediately wanted to try it. So try it, I did.
The recipe can be found here ((it's way too long to type out)) and let me just tell you...homemade graham cracker crust is SO easy and SO worth it. I used cinnamon sugar graham crackers and holy moly. The remainder of the recipe is straight forward, but a little complicated and time consuming, but is definitely worth the extra effort. This pie turned out so sweet, creamy, tangy, and tasty I can't even stand it. I left for work right after I finished this pie and received a text message from Chase after my shift saying
"That pie is amazing."
Here is a photo compilation ((fancy wording for no reason)) of the pie in three steps. Just the filling & crust, with the topping added, and then the meringue. I tried to add strawberry puree to the "filling" to make it pink rather than muted yellow, but as you can see....it didn't work.
Chase was napping, so I had to rely on my iphone to get some self portraits with the pie. Also, all of the other photos were taken with my iphone. I know...I'm so lazy.
happy pie making!
