HOW DOES BIG BOY MAKE HIS STRAWBERRY PIE?
This strawberry pie is quite similar to Frisch’s Big Boy/Shoneys famous pie. It only takes 6 basic ingredients and a pre-made pie crust to prepare it!

THE INGREDIENTS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
I sliced fresh strawberries into halves and used 5 cups.
a half-cup of sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon of salt
A glass of milk, to be precise.
TO MAKE THE DOUGH:
2 big yolks of eggs
1 cup unsalted butter, cut into appropriate portions
1 cup all-purpose flour
a half-cup of cold water
a quarter cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
It smells like vanilla.
Canola oil is a type of vegetable oil.
THE METHOD :
I first added the salt, sugar, vanilla extract, and unsalted butter to the flour to prepare strawberry pie dough, and then I added gradually the canola oil and cold water until a smooth and cohesive dough is made.
Then I whisked in the egg yolks separately, and I kneaded until the dough was firm again.
I put the dough in the fridge until it was ready for kneading and easy to spread.
After taking the dough out of the fridge, I let it cool slightly.
To have an acceptable diameter of not more than 10 inches, I rolled the pie dough into an oven tray and I pressed it well.
I removed the dough’s excess edges instantly, then I covered it with a plastic wrap and placed it back in the refrigerator to cool for five minutes.
I made another bowl and I put in the sliced strawberries, cornstarch, sugar, and a pinch of salt stirring well.
Then I placed strawberries on the top of the pie dough, paying attention to a stick to decorate the sides.
I placed the strawberry pie in the oven to cook for approximately half an hour at 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Finally, I took the pie from the oven and I dust it with a little sugar, taking into account that a fork or knife makes four holes in the pie to create cracks from which steam escapes to keep the pie from burning during baking.
