Recipe: Fresh Strawberry Pie

25 Jul

Hi everyone!

Have to share this delicious and super easy recipe with you all (are you picking up on a theme here?) Mr. R originally found this recipe for fresh strawberry pie here in The Test Kitchen, and it was a hit when we debuted it at a family 4th of July party. Needless to say, this is going to be our go-to dish to bring anywhere!

Last weekend we went to a BBQ and brought two pies. Everyone loved them!

Ingredients:

-2.5 lbs. fresh, whole strawberries

– 3/4 c sugar

– 2 tbs. cornstarch

– 1.5 tsp. pectin

– pinch slat

– pie sheet

– whipped cream

Recipe:

First, bake your crust and let cool. We used frozen, pre-made crusts, but if you’re feeling adventurous, here is a recipe for a pie crust from Simply Recipes.

Puree 6 large strawberries until smooth

In a bowl, mix sugar, cornstarch, pectin and salt. Mix it in with the strawberry puree.

Bring mixture to a boil and let boil for 2 minutes, stirring the whole time. After it cooks, transfer the gel-like mix to a bowl, add 1 tsp. lemon juice. Cool filling.

Add whole strawberries to puree and mix

Pile filling into pie crust

Let cool in fridge 2 hours. Then add whipped cream and enjoy. This recipe makes one pie… but you may need two 😉

Enjoy!
