Easier Strawberry Pie

Sometimes easy is better.
This pie recipe showcases your fresh strawberries perfectly.
Fill a pie shell with fresh strawberries and cover the berries with glaze.
Garnish the pie with whipped cream and you’re done.

This pie is not too sweet and the fresh taste of the strawberries is really showcased.

Ingredients

1 baked nine-inch pie shell from Just-Add-Water Professional Pie Crust Mix
2 pounds quality strawberries (you’ll have some extra berries to snitch or use for garnish)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoon Instant Clear Gel
3/4 cup water
couple drops Red Red Americolor gel food coloring or equal
1 cup whipping cream
3 tablespoons powdered sugar

Directions

Make the pie crust according to package directions.
Prick the surface of the pie crust with the tines of fork to allow for steam to escape.
Line the bottom of the crust with pie weights.
Bake the crust for eight to twelve minutes or until it just starts to brown.
Wash and hull the strawberries.
Do not allow the strawberries to sit in water since they will absorb water and make the pie runny.
Use a strawberry slicer to cut the strawberries into even, uniform slices.

Combine the sugar and Clear Gel.
Add the water.
Whisk until the crystals are dissolved.
Add the red food coloring if desired.
Fill the cooled pie shell with strawberry slices.
Pour the slurry over the berries. Let the pie chill for 2 to 3 hours.
Whip the cream until peaks form, adding the powdered sugar when the cream begins to stiffen.
After the pie has chilled and just before serving, garnish the pie with whipped cream.

Easiest Strawberry Pie

This is the easiest and quickest way to make a strawberry pie.
You pick up the components at the grocery store and assemble your pie at home.
You’ll have a great pie without a lot of work.
Everyone will be impressed and your pie should be done in about fifteen minutes.

Here’s what you will need:

A pre-made pie crust from the refrigerator or freezer section.
Strawberries.
Pick up a two-pound basket.
You won’t need that many but it’s nice to have enough to pick out the best for your pie.
Glace.
Most stores, especially in the spring, will have a pre-made glace for your pie.
An aerosol can of whipped cream.
To assemble your pie at home:

Before you begin, thaw the pie crust and preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Prick the crust with a fork to allow steam to escape and bake it for eight to ten minutes at 450 degrees or until it starts to brown.
While the crust is baking, wash and slice the berries.
Pick out the best berries.
A strawberry slicer will make nice uniform slices and will be quicker.
You will need two cups of sliced strawberries.
Spread the slices evenly in the baked crust.
Spread the pre-made glace over the berries to fill the pie.
Refrigerate the pie so that it is well-chilled.
Just before serving, garnish it with whipped cream from the can.
