Beltane Cakes and Ale

Beltane Cakes and Ale

My favorite thing to contribute to group rituals is Cakes and Ale because there are so many creative ways to do this.

I made these little pies for our Beltane ritual tomorrow. Beltane is associated with the colors red and white, so I thought this would be a nice way to bring that symbolism to the altar.¬† These are from scratch because most pre-made pie crusts have trans fat in them and it’s not that hard to make yourself.

Crust (adjust proportions to your liking):

-2 cups flour (I used unbleached)
-1 cup butter
-2 tablespoons sugar
-pinch of salt
-7 tablespoons water

Filling
-strawberries
-sugar
-vanilla extract
-splash lemon juice
-cornstarch

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine dough ingredients and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Shape into pie crusts in a cupcake tin.

Combine filling ingredients and cook on low heat on stove for a few minutes.

Fill pies.

Bake 25-30 minutes.

Enjoy!
