I still have a pastry phobia. I am trying to overcome it by exposure. In other words to get over it by making pastry until I feel comfortable. Hubby went shopping yesterday and brought home a huge box of tasty strawberries. So I made a strawberry pie. A basic butter pastry, one quarter pound of butter, tablespoon of sugar, pinch of salt, 1.25 cups of flour. Buzz it in the food processor. Add a couple of tablespoons of cold water and roll it out. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. For the glaze, clean and chop about a cup of strawberries, add half a cup of sugar, half a cup of rum, and a couple of tablespoons of corn starch. Cook over medium heat. Clean and half another 2 cups of strawberries and toss with powdered sugar. Chill the glaze and the pie shell. Mix the fresh strawberries in the glaze and fill the pie shell.
