Luscious Strawberry Pie made with fresh strawberries. It's the perfect pie for Summer!
There are few things that say summer to me more than a good pie recipe. Rhubarb, blueberry, peach, cherry – they’re all summer classics. But few pies really take advantage of the perfection that is summer fruit like a fresh strawberry pie.
The only problem that I have with a lot of strawberry pie recipes is the use of strawberry-flavored gelatin to set the pie. Fresh summer strawberries are full of so much flavor on their own, why should we need to use artificial strawberry flavoring to augment our pie? The good news is that we don’t.
The filling for this strawberry pie is made from nothing more than strawberry puree, cooked down with a little bit of water and sugar and thickened with cornstarch. The finished pie sets up just like the gelatin-filled version, but presents nothing but fresh strawberry flavor.
Another added bonus to nixing the gelatin? It means that this filling is both vegan and gluten-free, and perfect for everyone to enjoy at your next summer get-together.
