Strawberry Pie

This week we made strawberry pie with fresh strawberries. It was so yummy and super easy!

Originally the plan had been strawberry rhubarb pie, but alas, our grocery store lacks rhubarb. Oh the sadness!! Though it turned out to be a good thing since this pie came out so great! None of us had ever had straight strawberry pie before. It tasted like strawberry jam on toast. SO GOOD! I'm making another one this week for a potluck at work. :)

Hull and quarter 2 lbs of strawberries.

Mix with sugar and cornstarch.

Pour into premade pie crust- we just had a store bought one,
but you could make your own.
Top with cookie cutter cut outs of more pie crust.

Cover whole pie with cut outs.

Brush with butter & sprinkle some sugar on top.

Bake it !
The only recommendation we'd give is to put a pie shield around the outside crust.
Ours got a little burned and we didn't cook it as long as the recipe called for.

If you want measurements and more details, we used this recipe from Food Network. We didn't make the fancy whipped cream, the pie was so good by itself it didn't really need it.
