O-PIE-O-MY-O-PIE!

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.

Fresh strawberries? I've almost forgotten what they are! How garden-time flies. Enjoy your pie :)

Your photos are mouth watering deliciousness looking! By all means it should be topped with whipped cream. Love your pretty tablecloth too. Can I stop by for a slice and a cup of coffee?!

That is the most BEE-U-TIFUL pie I have ever seen. I so want a nice big slice! I'm wondering if it would work with a GF tart crust...

I truly am sitting here salivating! What a lovely pie. I would dive right into that pie! I am out of state taking care of my Mom who isn't feeling well. I have been cooking her everything and anything to get her to eat and am tired of living on leftovers. That pie recipe will be getting made as soon as I get home again!!

I'll Call You Jane - Would it be bad for me to confess that the two of us ate the whole pie within two days?

Mama Pea said...

LindaCO - It truly is!

Mama Pea said...

Carolyn - It's not going to be long before we forget what fresh strawberries are, too. It's looking like a very sparse crop this year. :o(

Mama Pea said...

Stephanie - This pie is so worth sharing!

Mama Pea said...

Lisa - Ooops. We should have made the date sooner. Pie's all gone. (Darn, I'll just have to make another one!)

Mama Pea said...

Susan - I am sure it would work with your GF tart crust. Go for it, Girl!

Mama Pea said...

2 Tramps - So sorry to hear your mom is under the weather and you need to be away from home to care for her.

Here's hoping she is feeling much better soon and you can celebrate with a pie!
