Triple Berry Patriotic Pie

Fresh fruit is one of the best parts of summer. I can barely keep fresh berries stocked in my house. The day I buy them, my children inhale them. This pie is a wonderful summer tradition. It’s the perfect companion for a celebration picnic or a festive barbeque.  I like to serve it with homemade ice cream or fresh whipped cream.

INGREDIENTS:

Recipe for 2-crust pie
1 1/3 cup each fresh strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries
1 cup sugar
5 TBS flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
11/2 TBS butter

SUPPLIES:

measuring cups/spoons
collander
2 large bowls
1 small bowl
rolling pin
pie plate

PREPARATION:

Preheat oven to 425° degrees F (220° degrees C)

Wash berries thoroughly. Drain. Remove stems and hulls. Slice strawberries into quarters.

DIRECTIONS:

Prepare the pie crust dough. Roll out half the dough and line the pie plate.

Place the berries in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Gently toss with the berries. Pour into pastry-lined pie plate. Dot with the butter.

Roll out the remaining dough and cut into shapes, lattice pieces, or a pie top.

Top the berries. If using a whole pie crust, cut several holes in it for venting. Pinch/trim edges as needed.

Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the crust is nicely browned and the juice is bubbling through the crust.

Let stand before serving. The juice will thicken in the flour and sugar as the pie cools.

YIELD:

1 pie; 8 servings

Recipe: Resurrection Cookies

Resurrection Cookies

I make this recipe with my kids every Saturday before Resurrection Sunday. We enjoy the cookies the next morning with our eggs for breakfast. The kids can’t wait to open the oven door the next morning and see the hollow meringue. I originally found the recipe here. I LOVE how I get to read the Bible with them as we make these cookies, how they get to have some application to apply to the story to help them retain what they’re reading and/or hearing. This is a beautiful hands-on tool to teach the resurrection of our Lord.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup whole pecans
1 tsp vinegar
3 egg whites
pinch Kosher or sea salt
1 cup sugar

SUPPLIES:

zipper baggie
wooden spoon
tape
Bible
bowl
mixer
measuring cups/spoons

PREPARATION:

Preheat oven to 300° degrees F.

DIRECTIONS:

Place pecans in zipper baggie and let children beat them with the wooden spoon to break into small pieces. Explain that after Jesus was arrested, the Roman soldiers beat him. Read John 19:1-3.

Let each child smell the vinegar. Put 1 tsp. vinegar into mixing bowl. Explain that when Jesus was thirsty on the cross he was given vinegar to drink. Read John 19:28-30.

Add egg whites to vinegar. Eggs represent life. Explain that Jesus gave His life to give us life. Read John 10:10-11.

Sprinkle a little salt into each child’s hand. Let them taste it and brush the rest into the bowl. Explain that this represents the salty tears shed by Jesus’ followers, and the bitterness of our own sin. Read Luke 23:27.

So far the ingredients are not very appetizing. Add 1c. sugar. Explain that the sweetest part of the story is that Jesus died because He loves us. He wants us to know and belong to Him. Read Psalms 34:8 and John 3:16.

Beat with a mixer on high speed for 12 to 15 minutes until stiff peaks are formed. Explain that the color white represents the purity in God’s eyes of those whose sins have been cleansed by Jesus. Read Isaiah. 1:18 and John 3:1-3.

Fold in broken nuts. Drop by teaspoons onto wax paper covered cookie sheet. Explain that each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus’ body was laid. Read Matthew 27:57-60.

Put the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door and turn the oven OFF. Give each child a piece of tape and seal the oven door. Explain that Jesus’ tomb was sealed. Read Matt.27:65-66.

GO TO BED! Explain that they may feel sad to leave the cookies in the oven overnight. Jesus’ followers were in despair when the tomb was sealed. Read John 16:20-22.

On Easter morning, open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Notice the cracked surface and take a bite. The cookies are hollow! On the first Easter Jesus’ followers were amazed to find the tomb open and empty.

YIELD:

16 cookies
