Strawberry Pie

Just for the record, this pie is shiny and its really hard to take a picture of something this shiny. So if you are having a hard time seeing it very well, sorry, I tried really hard to get a good picture.

I bought a ton of strawberries and I have no idea why, so I decided to make a pie. I think you normally use whole strawberries hulled when you make a strawberry pie, but I decided because I had so many strawberries to quarter them so I could fit more. I have yet to master the pie crust so I  just bought one and this pie turned out delicious, it was such a good fresh treat!


Strawberry Pie
Recipe Adapted From: Allrecipes.com

1 Pie Crust, baked
6 cups Fresh Strawberries, quartered
1 cup Granulated Sugar
3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
1/2 cup Water
2 oz Chocolate, I used white

1. Melt chocolate. Using a pastry brush paint the chocolate on the pie crust and let cool until hardened (this prevents the crust form going soggy). Arrange 4 1/2 cups of strawberries in pie crust. Mash remaining strawberries and combine with the sugar in a medium saucepan. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.

2. In a small bowl, whisk cornstarch and water. Gradually stir the cornstarch mixture into the boiling strawberry mixture. Continue to boil stirring constantly for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour mixture over berries in pie crust. Chill for at least 3 hours before serving. Serve with whipped cream.

  3. Yummm! I like cake, but pie, pie is my forte. I have a great pie crust recipe if you want it. It's my Grandma Stewart's "never fail" crust and it totally lives up to its name.
