Fresh Strawberry Pie...

I haven't posted a recipe forever.  I really have no excuse.  Since I made it this weekend I thought I'd share one of my favorites.  I got this wonderful strawberry pie recipe from Kelly's mom it was her sister, Renee's.  It is perfect for this hot summer weather.  The Easy Pie Crust was a recipe the Fanger's shared at a 4-H meeting for their demonstration.  Funny how those memories stick with a person.

Easy Pie Crust
1 1/2 c. flour
1 t. sugar
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. milk

Mix together in the pie plate and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Renee's Fresh Strawberry Pie
mash 1 c. strawberries
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. water
3 T. cornstarch

Combine above ingredients and cook until thick.  Not super thick, but not super thin either.

Add 4 cups of fresh or frozen strawberries to the pie crust.

 Pour mixture over the berries and refridgerate.
Once it is set, eat and enjoy.  It is very easy to make and delicious.  Hope you enjoy during these hot summer days.


  1. Thats looks lovely I might give it a go.

  2. My mouth is watering! And I love that easy pie crust recipe! :)

  3. Now this does sound easy I will have to try this. I am off to run errands than start baling two fields this afternoon. There is no more cut so yeah I get a few days break. I may be to tired to make pie but I certainly would like to eat some:) B

  4. Looks delicious, and pretty simple, too! Sounds like the perfect dessert with all this hot weather around.

  5. MMMMMM I was just thinking how when we were kids of going to Woolworths to eat this pie.I never have made it, but want to give it a try.

    I would say your crust uses 1/2 c oil even though it says 12.LOL

  6. Now, if we lived closer...what a wonderful dessert table we'd have with your strawberry pie and my blueberry slab pie for the 4th! Happy Holiday, dear friend, XOXO

  7. This pie looks delish!! Can't wait to read more!
