Valentine's Day Strawberry Heart Pie

 
What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with a slice of strawberry pie?!
 
I found this awesome idea on pinterest several months ago and fell in love. I made it even better using homemade pie crust, instead of store bought. It is SO easy, and so worth the extra effort when making a homemade pie. See my recipe below.
 
Look how beautiful this pie is! Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
 


 
To make an easy, flaky, buttery pie crust, you will need:
 
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 sticks of butter cut in slices and kept cold
1/2 cup of ice cold water
Dump all ingredients (except water) into a food processor and pulse until it resembles pebbles. Then, slowly add water until a dough is formed.
Split the dough in two (one for bottom, one for top of pie) and roll into pie crust form.
Keep refrigerated or freeze. EASY!
