Strawberry Sweetheart Slab Pie

Valentine’s Day is only two days away!!! If you have nothing planned yet, don’t sweat, you still have some time … this is just a friendly reminder!! If you are feeding a crowd for Valentine’s Day this heart-adorned pie is absolutely perfect! It’s not too sweet and is over-the-top delicious served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (I buy the coconut dairy free variety, it’s out of this world). You can easily cut the recipe in half to make one smaller pie if your plans are more intimate! Or if you’re anything like me and are all about the presentation … this pie is perfect year round for any ‘girly’ events you’re attending!! Who doesn’t love hearts on top of their pie!?

Serves 18-20
Strawberry Filling
Ingredients:

  • 10 c. (about 3 lb.) frozen unsweetened sliced strawberries
  • ½ c. sugar
  • ½ c. cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. grated lemon zest
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.

Pie Crust:
Ingredients:

  • 5 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. vegetable shortening
  • 1 c. (1/2 lb.) cold butter, cut into 1/2” cubes
  • 1/3 c. plus 2-4 Tbsp. ice water
  • 1 egg

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, add all of the dry ingredients and pulse to mix.
  2. With the food processor off, sprinkle the butter and shortening on top of the dry ingredients and pulse just until the fat is incorporated and is the size of peas.
  3. Turn the machine off, and drizzle the 1/3 c. water plus 2 Tbsp. of water over top. Pulse the dough until it starts to stick together in clumps (not one large dough ball).  Add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, if needed to get it to the consistency you desire.
  4. Divide the dough into two discs by pressing the dough together, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before rolling it out.

To assemble the pie:

  1. Heat the oven to 425F.
  2. On a well-floured surface, roll out one of the dough balls in a rectangle approximately 1/8” thick to fit a baking sheet with sides. I used a 10×15” sheet.  Transfer it to the baking sheet.
  3. Pour the strawberry filling evenly over the prepared pie crust.
  4. Roll out the second disc of dough to the same size, and using a small heart cookie cutter, cut heart shapes in the dough in your desired pattern.
  5. Gently roll the dough around the rolling pin to transfer it to fit the top of the pie, and carefully place it on top of the filling.
  6. Using your fingers, crimp the edge of the pie crust to form a fluted edge.
  7. Whisk the egg with 1 Tbsp. of water and brush over the pie crust.
  8. Bake for approximately 30-40 minutes, until the pie is golden brown.
  9. Remove from the oven and cool.

    I’m confused.. aren’t you following an almost completely vegan(*ish) diet? Stated in your previous post, you mentioned that aside from a few exceptions, you were no longer eating animal products. I guess I’m just curious more than anything, since you seemed to be passionate about the process and treatment of animals.
