Fresh Strawberry Pie

Posted by - Vivian

I was craving something fresh and fruity when I saw that this month's "Have the Cake" challenge was strawberries. I really want to make it down to the U-pick farm and get some fresh strawberries but they aren't ready yet, so I used store bought strawberries. You know how it is when you buy fruit at the store, the fruit can either be good or blah. I hate when that happens! Luck was on my side and the berries were just fabulous!

The directions call for using mostly whole strawberries and while it worked out, I think next time I will quarter them. This is another one of those recipes that I had stockpiled prior to my blogging days. I have no idea where the recipe came from. I printed this recipe out in early 2000!

Fresh Strawberry Pie
1 (9-inch) baked pie crust
3 pints strawberries, stems removed and hulled  
3/4 cup sugar (recipe called for one cup but my berries were pretty sweet)
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt

Take 2 pints of your prepared strawberries and arrange the berries, stem side down, on your prebaked pie crust; set aside.

In a medium size sauce pan mash the remaining one pint of strawberries; to this add the sugar, water, cornstarch and salt.  Stir over medium heat and allow the mixture to come to a boil; after it is at a boil cook for one minute more.  Remove the pan from the stove and allow the strawberry mash mixture to cool before pouring over the berries in the pie crust.
Refrigerate for three hours to allow the pie to "set".  Serve with fresh whipped cream.

nothing like a fresh strawberry pie, it just needs whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream
