Just look at that photograph, who could resist?Â You shouldn’t!Â Enjoy this Oh My! recipe!
- 2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
- 2 teaspoons Grand Marnier
- Â¼ cup sugar
- 3 heaping tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon orange zest
- Your favorite pie crust
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
Go ahead & preheat your oven to 425 F or 220 C.
In a large bowl- combine the strawberries, Grand Marnier, sugar and cornstarch. Let sit up to one hour, or six hours in the refrigerator. The longer it sits the mushier it becomes though, so if you want to have slices you can see, donâ€™t let it sit longer than 30 minutes.
Roll out your pie-crust and fit it into a standard 9â€ pie plate (tin, pan, whatever you prefer to call it), crimping the edges as you go. Line the bottom with a parchment circle and fill with dried beans or pie weights. Blind bake the crust for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. Remove the weights and set aside until you are ready to bake the pie.
Lower the oven to 350 F or 175 C.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Place the pie plate on the baking sheet, brush the edges of the crust with the melted butter, then fill the pie crust with the fruit mixture. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove and let cool completely before serving.
Eat well & Laugh often!
