Blog revival!

It’s been a long time since I have posted something and I probably have made many, many things since then. Now that I feel a resurfacing desire to make things, here we are.

I made it with Lebovitz’s tarte dough and 2 pounds of strawberries with about a cup of sugar and 3 tablespoons of cornstarch (cooked for 10 minutes on the stovetop). The cake was in the freezer for 30 minutes (hrr hrr) and then in the fridge for the rest of the night, and will be given to my grandparents for my grandmother’s eightieth birthday.

Of course this pie is a whole lot like the pie I made for pi-day – a simple apple pie with a large “Pi” on it.

This is perhaps the simplest cake possible, but it took me forever to do. First, this is because it’s been awhile since I have made a cake like this, second, dealing with strawberries takes an eternity! (It’s even worse than apples.) But from the leftovers I have eaten so far, it was definitely worth it. Hopefully they’ll like the pie.
