It wouldn’t be May without a fresh strawberry pie. The next time you have a craving for such a thing, give this recipe a try. At Marisolio, strawberries are our theme for the month of May, and one of my favorite ways to enjoy this fruit in season is in a fresh pie. Your guests will love this at your next barbecue or spring celebration.
Succulent Strawberry Pie
1 baked 9 inch pie crust
1 quart fresh strawberries, cleaned
1 cup white sugar
2 T. Marisolio Strawberry Balsamic Condimento
3 T. cornstarch
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Arrange half of the strawberries in the pie crust. Mash remaining strawberries and combine with sugar and Marisolio Strawberry Balsamic in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil and stir constantly. In a small bowl, combine the water and cornstarch. Gradually stir cornstarch mixture into the boiling strawberries. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour over berries in pie shell. Chill for several hours before serving. Whip cream until soft peaks form and serve over each serving of pie.
