I am seeing strawberries all over the market these days. I wanted to make a strawberry pie for a long time, finally i picked couple packs of strawberries and made this delicious pie. I was surprised when i tasted it. It was totally yummy. I am sure everyone who eats this will love it for sure.
Chicken and Leek Pie
I have made quite a few pie recipes over the years, but i always wanted to create a lattice pie crust effect. I made this lattice crust really easily by placing it just over each other. But there is a effect which looks like a weaving pattern will share it soon as well..
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.

Makes: One 6 Inch Pie

(My 1 cup measures 240 ml)
Start by making the pie crust and chill it for atleast 30 mins. Now take half of the pastry and roll it between two sheets of plastic wrap and line a pie plate, slice of the excess and pop this in fridge till needed.
Mix all ingredients given for filling. set aside.

Take the remaining half of the pastry and roll it out, cut it into strips.
Take the chilled pie dish, spoon the filling into it, top with the strips like a lattice pattern.

Bake this for 15 mins, then reduce the temparature to 180 degree C / 350 degree C and bake for 30 to 35 mins.
