It’s the finale of STRAWBERRY WEEK and with the 4 July coming up I thought I would share a fresh dessert that is sure to make everyone happy! This is a super simple Strawberry Pie recipe from Inspired Taste! When we made the pie, my mom made a fresh pie crust as well. Don’t worry about getting all fancy with it, store-bought crust will work just fine!
- Pie crust
- 5 Cups Strawberries, quartered & hulled
- 1/4 Cup Cornstarch
- 2/3-3/4 Cup Sugar, add more depending on the sweetness of the strawberries
- 1/8 TSP Salt
- 1 TSP Vanilla extract
- 1/4 TSP Almond extract
- 1 TBSP Lemon Juice
Let’s Get Cooking
Prepare your piecrust as directed.
Cut the tops off the berries and quarter them. Add 2 Cups of strawberries to a saucepan. Muddle the berries until they are chunky. Add in sugar + cornstarch + vanilla extract + almond extract + lemon juice + salt.
Bring the mixture to a simmer on medium heat. Stir occasionally until it has thickened, for about 3-5 minutes. Let the mixture cool completely.
Add in the remaining 3 Cups of strawberries to the cooled strawberries. Stir until they are combined.
Add the filing into your cooled pie crust & place in the fridge for at least 2 hours before eating.
Top it off with whipped cream if you’d like!
Made with Love,
