Strawberry Pie

This is absolutely a family favorite!  The hubster and my dad LOVE strawberry pie!  I’ve already made 2 of them this summer and I’m sure I’ll make more before the summer is over.  This is my grandma’s recipe and it is a winner!

It is best to eat it all the same or next day that  it is made or it becomes watery.

Strawberry Pie

Ingredients

1 pie crust ( I use this one.)

1 cup strawberries, cleaned and hulled and cut into small (1/4″) pieces

1 cup sugar

3 Tbsp. corn starch

1 cup water

few drops red food coloring – optional (I usually don’t add any)

additional 2.5 – 3 cups berries, cleaned hulled and sliced in half or quarters

Directions

Prepare and blind bake a pie crust (not a deep dish).  Allow it to cool. ( I usually do this the night before.)

In a small or medium saucepan, mix sugar and corn starch.  Add one cup of water slowly.  Add the cup of berry pieces and cook over medium heat, stirring often (about 10 minutes or less).  The mixture will turn from a white liquid to thick and clear when done.  Add a few drops of food coloring if you wish (or you may think it is red enough).  Cool.

Stir in the rest of the berries.  Pour into pie crust and chill 3-4 hours before serving.  Can also arrange a few additional halved strawberries on top.
