Fresh Strawberry Pie
I found this recipe in my mom's Betty Crocker cookbook years ago, but ended up using the recipe solely for the fresh strawberry glaze details. I use my own pie crust recipe. I was trying to replicate Marie Callender's fresh strawberry pie, but due to the glaze difference I like this pie even better!
Betty Crocker's Fresh Strawberry Pie Glaze
1 1/2 quarts (6 cups) strawberries, hulled (includes strawberries to pile into pie crust)
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1. Make a 9 inch pie crust and bake according to instructions. Let cool completely.
2. In a small bowl, mash enough strawberries to measure 1 cup. In a 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar and cornstarch. Gradually stir in 1/2 cup water and mashed strawberries. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute; cool.
3. Place remaining strawberries in pie crust. Pour cooked strawberry mixture over top. Refrigerate until set, about 3 hours. Store in refrigerator.
Simple and delicious= simply delicious!
We serve our pie with whipped cream!
Here's my "go to" pie crust recipe (from a past post).
