time for pie

Vintage pie plates are really fun inexpensive collectables . I pick them up here or there at thrift stores , rummage sales or yard sales for only a dollar or two.

Not only are these ceramic pie plates cute, what makes them really fun is that the pie recipe  is already printed on them as part of the design!

And I don’t know about your family, but mine absolutely love any kind of pie especially fruity summer pies, so today I’m sharing a few additional recipes that we love.

Martha Stewart?S Strawberry Icebox Pie


10 graham crackers (2 1/2 by means of five inches)

1 cup sugar

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1/2 cup unsweetened cranberry juice

2 quarts strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced (a few complete berries reserved for garnish)

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/four teaspoon salt

1/2 cup heavy cream


1. Preheat oven to 350 levels. In a meals processor, blend graham crackers with 2 tablespoons sugar till finely floor; add butter and pulse till crumbs are moistened. Press mixture into the lowest and up the facet of a nine-inch pie plate. Bake until crust is lightly browned, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to a twine rack and permit cool completely.

2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, integrate 3/4 cup sugar, cranberry juice, 2 cups strawberries, cornstarch, and salt. Using a potato masher, lightly mash strawberries.

Pour into cooled pie crust. Refrigerate till set, as a minimum 4 hours (or up to one day).

Three. In a large bowl, beat cream till tender peaks form. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons sugar over cream and preserve to conquer until smooth peaks go back (do no longer overbeat). Spread whipped cream over pie, leaving a 1 half of-inch border around area. Garnish with entire berries.
