Homemade Strawberry Pie Recipe

We went out to our local orchard on Friday and were able to purchase some fresh, plump and juicy strawberries...we just love to eat them during the summer months. I really wish we could grow strawberries all year long here in Pennsylvania as strawberries are one of our favorite berry fruits.

Here is the recipe we used a few days ago to make a delicious strawberry pie.

Strawberry Pie Recipe

1 prepared pie crust
3 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced plus 12 additional whole strawberries for garnishing
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare pie crust and bake for 15 minutes until its golden brown. Allow crust to cool before using.

In a medium-sized saucepan, mix together the strawberries, 1 cup of the granulated sugar and the cornstarch. Slowly stir in the water. Cook over medium heat, stirring for 10-12 minutes or until mixture thickens. Pour into prepared pie crust and refrigerate for 3 hours. Whip the cream with the remaining sugar. Cover the top of the pie with the whipped cream. Decorate the top with 12 whole strawberries for garnishing.
