Strawberry Envelopes – Letters of Love

Hush, Can you hear it?
The rustling in the grass,
Bringing you the welcome news
Winter’s day is past.
Soft, Can you feel it?
The warm caressing breeze,
Telling you the sticky buds
Are bursting on the trees.
Look, Can you see them?
The primrose in the lane,
Now you must believe it –
Spring is here again.

After giving a lot of thoughts, I finally decoded the feelings I get when I hear the word – Red in February and all I recalled was – Red means Love, Care, Laughter, Sense of simplicity, Fruits, Feelings and Emotions. 🙂 Wow…These words were enough to gave me an idea to create a beauty which was going to be known as Letters of LOVE….And I came up to create a beautiful synergy between a fruit and a baked delight – And there I am.

Method

For Pie Dough

First let’s knead the pie dough and let it rest. Till the time it will be ready to use, we will be done with all our preparations.

  • Take all purpose flour in a bowl and add sugar. Mix well. Now add diced butter and mix it well using your fingers. Don’t use any spoon or ladle to mix. Do it with fingers as it will make sure that every bit of flour has a buttery flavor to it. After 5-1o mins, you will start noticing crumbled texture of the flour. Dip your fingers in cold water and keep mixing it lightly. Once the dough is kneaded, it will be rough crumbled dough, cover it in a cling film and let it rest in fridge for 30 mins

For Strawberry compote

  • Heat pan and put finely chopped strawberries.
  • Add sugar and keep the flames on sim.
  • Let it simmer for good 10 mins. Add lemon juice.
  • Strawberry compote is ready. Cool it!
