Hi guys and happy Food Friday,
(post contains affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)
with the beginning of June the strawberry season has finally started too. I don´t know what it is about this delicious little berry but whether you are making juice, cake or jam out of it or you are eating them pure they are so so good.

And the smell guys. Sometimes I wish I could capture the smell for you. The strawberry field smelled so sweet!!!

Since I am not a real fruit lover I do have my exceptions when it comes to strawberries (or raspberries, pineapples or melons).

We picked about 8 pounds so the first thing I did when I got home was making dough for a strawberry pie (and the leftover strawberries where cut for jam but this recipe is coming next week then).

Here are the ingredients:

for the dough
3 cups of flour
2 tablespoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or paste
3/4 cup butter not melted

- mix the ingredients together until your are having a sticky dough
- then put some flour onto a clean area in your kitchen
- knead the dough with your hands until everything is combined just fine

-take a rolling pin and roll out dough evenly
- take a cup in the size you like and cut out round pieces 

- I made all the little dough pieces below from one dough so this really is enough
- let them cool down for about 15 minutes
- spread a mixture of confectioners sugar and heavy cream on top and bake for about 20 minutes by 160° degrees

for the strawberries:
- 750 gramms of strawberries
- 2 spoons of sugar

- marinade the strawberries with the sugar and let them rest

for the heavy cream
- take as much heavy cream as you like and whip it until its really solid
(you can make the test by flipping your bowl - if it doesn´t come out the consistency is great (but be careful or you are producing quite the mess)

Now head to your nearest strawberry field and get your fix for the weekend.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
