A Strawberry & Apple Pie.

As a part of getting to know our new little neighborhood, Jake and I went shopping at the family owned Italian grocery, Donatelli's, that is just down the road from our place. It was such a great discovery! For the first time I felt relaxed as I shopped for our food plus everything was significantly cheaper than the dirty chain grocery store that we forced ourselves to go to when we lived in south side. Such a sweet change. I picked up the apples for Jake's apple pie that I had promised a while ago and adding strawberries sounding like the prefect idea.

3-1/2 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples
1-1/4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)

Bake for 10 minutes @ 450 then reduce heat to 350 and bake for 30 minutes.

I also used a simple crumb topping.

Crust recipe from Andrea's mom <3 

Turned out to be quite delicious!
