 Ingredients List

  • 3/4 c Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 1/2 ts Baking Powder
  • 1/3 c Plus 3T Brown Sugar (packed)
  • 3/4 c Low-fat Milk
  • 3/4 c Unbleached White Flour
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 2 tb Butter, melted
  • 1 pt Strawberries *


* Sweet, ripe strawberries, hulled and crushed
Heavy Cream (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 deg F.
In a mixing bowl, sift together the flours, baking powder, and salt. In
another bowl, combine 1/3 cup of the sugar with the melted butter until it
dissolves. Stir in the milk, then combine the wet with the dry ingredients
and work together to form a soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a
well-floured board and knead for a minute or so. Divide the dough into 2
equal parts, form into smooth balls, and roll out to to fit the bottom of
a pie pan. Place the rounds of dough in 2 lightly oiled pie pans. Bake for
12-15 minutes, or until dough is golden brown.
In the meantime, combine the crushed strawberries with the remaining
3 T sugar in a small bowl. Cover until ready to use.
Allow the baked dough to cool until it is just warm to the touch. Place 1
round on a serving plate, spread it with the berries, and top with the
other round of dough. Cut into wedges to serve; this is best served fresh
and warm. Top each serving with a bit of cold, stiffly beaten heavy cream
if you'd like.
