Hello ! Have a wonderful spring.
It’s Pie Month here in Sugar Apron !!! Do you have a strawberry pie recipe that you love?
This pie is the easiest thing to make in the world. As a kid, I had a backyard strawberry patch, and smaller, tasty bunches of wild strawberry near an old wooden wall. My mom used to send me out into the back yard with a measuring bowl and tell me to fill it up to the streak. I would pick out the few largest berries from the spot and then fill the rest of the bowl with the small, redder cranberry. Let me just say that fresh strawberries are much tastier than supermarket and frozen strawberries. It is naturally sweet and melts in your mouth. Back in the kitchen, she was chopping berries and glaze with some sugar and cornstarch to thicken and fill a crust made of lard (you can smell pork, honestly).
So, today, I’m sharing my all-time favorite strawberry recipe, with a few changes. The best thing about this recipe, besides the fact that it will remove your taste buds, is that it’s only five ingredients, six ingredients if you count water.
it’s easy. Easy as a Sunday morning. Easy, easy, easy. But, it also means strawberry takes center stage – where it belongs.
So, let’s make a fresh strawberry pie, shall we?
* Ingredients :
° 9-inch pie crust (you can use my recipe for homemade butter pie crust or you can use refrigerated pie crust and cook pie crust following the directions on the box).
° 4-6 cups of fresh strawberries, cut into quarters and peel
° 1 cup of water
° 1 cup sugar
° 1 3 oz. A pack of strawberry gel or
° 3 tablespoons of cornstarch
* Instructions :
* Bake the pie crust in a 9-inch deep pie dish and set aside to cool.
Put water, sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan and bring it to a boil.
Whisk constantly until thick. For 3 minutes.
Then whisk in Jell-O and cook for a minute longer.
Remove from heat and leave to cool for 15 minutes
When the glaze cools, place the strawberries directly into the pie crust.
Pour glazed over the strawberries.
Put it in the refrigerator until it is cooked.
