Strawberry Pie

My Nana was a GREAT Pie maker. I found this SWEET TREAT in her box and thought it the perfect recipe to share as we near STRAWBERRY PICKING SEASON. What I love about this recipe the most is how SIMPLE it is if you purchase a frozen/refrigerated pie crust and cook it first!

  • 1 Quart Strawberries
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 1/3 Cup Water
  • 4T Cornstarch
  • 1 Cooked Pie Crust

Simmer 1 Cup Mashed berries with 1 Cup Sugar and 1 Cup Water for 15 minutes. Mix cornstarch with 1/3 cup water and add to the mixture. Cook until thick and glossy. Cool and fold in rest of the berries (chopped). Carefully pour mixture into cooked pie crust. Refrigerate and serve with VANILLA ICE CREAM!

Shawn…looks delish!! Love seeing the recipe cards as well! My Nana was not only known for pies but also her cranberry nutbread. I still have her cookbooks and her recipe box…but I keep her bread recipe on my stove and think of her daily. I bet your Nana would be proud! Thank you for sharing!!
