Strawberry Apple Pie

Strawberry Apple Pie with French Vanilla Ice Cream (Kawartha Dairy)

2 nine inch unbaked pie shells ( I have shells, that I made from Tenderflake lard, stored in my freezer)

2 cups strawberries, diced
2 cups apples, diced (I used Eve apples which stay somewhat firm, which is the way I like it, but you can substitute your favourite type of apple to suit your taste buds)
1 1/4 cup white sugar plus 1 tsp, divided
2 tbsp flour plus 1 tsp, divided
1 tsp or more lemon zest

Sugar to sprinkle over top crust.

In a small bowl, mix together 1 tsp each of the white sugar, and flour (to sprinkle onto the bottom pie shell). Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the strawberries, apples, white sugar, and flour. Mix well. Sprinkle the white sugar/flour onto the bottom pie shell and then pour the strawberry/apple mixture into the pie shell. Spread the mixture out evenly and then sprinkle the lemon zest. Dampen crust edges, lay top crust over. Trim and crimp to seal. Cut slits in top and sprinkle with sugar.

A look inside.

Three 6 inch pies if you prefer.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes, or until golden brown. (If you have a convection oven you can bake on convection for the last 5 minutes or until the top is a nice golden brown colour.)  I recommend you put the pie on a baking sheet as the filling will tend to escape.  This pie is a little runny when eaten warm or at room temperature which is why I recommend the vanilla ice cream on the side.  The warm filling mixed with the ice cream is heavenly.  :D

As always, have fun and make it your own. ♥
Strawberry Apple Pie...Oh MY!
