50 Recipes: Strawberry Pie


This post is about a month late... but what can I say...
For Valentine's Day I made the Mr. a strawberry pie. I was writing a blog post about cream cheese pie crust over at Little House Living, and thought a strawberry pie fit in perfectly with such a romantic holiday. Don't you think?

I searched on search online for the perfect recipe to try, and ended up mixing a few recipes together, and I quite like how it turned out.

  • 1 pie crust, baked 
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp corn starch
  • 3/4 cup water
  • whipped cream
  • line the baked pie crust with 1/2 of the strawberries
  • in a saucepan, combine the other half of the strawberries with the sugar and boil on medium heat
  • in a small bowl, whisk together water and cornstarch, and gradually pour into saucepan and mix with strawberry mixture
  • reduce heat, stir constantly until mixture thickens
  • pour the mixture over the berries in the pie crust
  • refrigerate for a few hours before serving.
  • cover with whipped cream (or add dollops as desired)
  • & enjoy!
