I made a wonderful cold strawberry pie yesterday that I just have to share with you. It's not my recipe . . . I got it a couple of years ago from Jane on her blog Thy Hand Hath Provided.
Just look at all that fresh strawberry lusciousness!
I put some whipped cream on ours, 'cause I had a cup of whole cream in the fridge that I wanted to use . . . so why not?
The pie tastes very, very fresh and is not overly sweet at all. I'm not fibbing to you when I say I think I could have eaten half the pie. I did restrain myself (difficult that it was) and settled for the very large piece pictured above.
In the recipe Jane said the ingredients are for an 8-inch pie crust so if you are using a 9 or 10-inch crust, increase the amount of strawberries which I did since my pie plate was 9". But as you can see by the picture of the whole pie, I do think the filling would have been ample as set forth in the original recipe because I nearly overflowed my 9-inch crust using the few more berries I did add.
This pie has a permanent place in my recipe box in the pie section as Jane's Mom's Strawberry Pie. If you'd like to try it (you won't be sorry), click here. It is oh-so-good! Thanks for sharing the recipe, Jane.
