After my mom and I picked our buckets of strawberries, we would bring them home to wash, hull, and cut up the strawberries. We ate them fresh (with a little sugar of course), made jam, and my personal favorite, made pie. This strawberry pie recipe requires few ingredients and a few simple steps. I hope you enjoy this cool, refreshing pie as much as I do.
For the crust, either use a store bought pie crust, or prepare a single 9" pie crust. Bake this in the pie pan before preparing the filling. The pie crust must be baked and cooled before placing the filling in the pie crust.
Next, begin the filling.
Combine one cup of water and 1/2 cup of sugar in the medium size microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 3 1/2 minutes on full power.
While the mixture is cooling, clean, hull, and chop the strawberries. You only need to cut the berries in half or quarters.
Put the filling in the baked pie crust. Refrigerate until set (at least 4 to 6 hours). Top with the whipped topping before serving.
For a delicious substitute, use fresh raspberries with raspberry jello.
