1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

- In a measuring cup mix together vanilla extract and 1 1/3 cups cream. Drizzle cream mixture over dry ingredients and stir as you pour. Fold in strawberries and knead until the dough is cohesive but not sticky. Add a little extra cream is necessary.
- Dump the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Gently knead the dough on a floured surface and form into a circle about 3/4″ thick.
