Baked Strawberry Pie

So, let's chat about strawberry pie... isn't it great:@) Most of the time folks make unbaked strawberry pies-which are wonderful, but I'd like to suggest trying a baked strawberry pie, especially if your local berries aren't in yet. I'm telling you folks, there's nothing quite like the smell of a bubbling, ooey, gooey, sticky, sweet pie in the oven! This is a fun pie to make while strawberries are still on sale, 1quart=$1.99.
  Very tasty! (No idea what's happening with the colors of these pics folks...)
After searching the internet, I decided to use this as my base recipe. Feel free to make any (or all) of these additions: 1 tsp cinnamon, up to 1/2 tsp nutmeg, up to 1 tsp vanilla extract, up to 1/2 tsp almond extract.

Strawberry Pie-Baked
Dough for a two crust pie or bottom crust and **crumb topping
4 C strawberries, sliced thick
1/2 C flour
1/2 C sugar
A couple pats of butter-optional
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. *Place bottom crust in a 9" pie plate.
  3. Gently mix berries with flour and sugar.
  4. Pour into pie plate, use spatula to add every last drop-sorry Earl:@)
  5. Add a couple pats of butter-if using, I didn't.
  6. Add top crust or crumbs.
  7. Bake for one hour.
Notes:
  • *1 quart of chopped berries gave me approx 3 1/2 cups so I used an 8" pie plate.
  • I still kept the flour at 1/2 cup, I wanted to make sure the pie set up well. I would remove 1 Tblsp of flour the next time.
  • Taste your strawberries before you start, if they're not very sweet you can add a tablespoon or two of additional sugar.
  • I think the top of this pie should be completely covered, some of the berries got a little dark. 
  • The next time I make it I will add some cinnamon to a crumb topping instead of a top crust. 
  • If you like strawberries don't hesitate to give this pie a try folks!
  • **Adding this recipe for crumbs: 3/4 C flour, 1/2 C sugar, melted butter (approx 4-6 Tblsp). Mix dry, slowly drizzle in butter while gently "fluffing" the mixture with a fork. The idea is to mix gently so you get some nice big crumbs. Pour over pie filling. Mix in any spices you'd like to use with the flour/sugar.

  1. Oh my this looks sooooo good! I have a big package of stawberries I couldn't resist buying from Costco, and I was worried they'd go bad before we finished them. I think this pie will be in my oven this afternoon, Lynn. :)

  14. Good morning Lynn, This pie is adorable and I am sure delicious. I have a baked strawberry pie recipe that I haven't baked since the first year we were married. That would be 49 years ago. We just celebrated our 49th anniversary with a post on Pink Saturday.I still don't feel old. HA!

    I also remember the pan you shared but I never had one. The owl vase is a great find. Thrifting always makes me so happy.

    Happy days to you.
    xo, Jeanne

  18. Oh My Goodness, YES YES YES! I too like the baked ones. I just made one and threw in some RHUBARB too. I always put cinnamon and nutmeg in it too. AND I always dot the filling with butter before adding the top crust... I LOVE yours with all the little strawberry cutouts on top! You are SO CLEVER!
    Big Hugs,
    Donna

  24. I got a great price on a flat of strawberries, I ended up freezing most of them. Would I be able to use the frozen strawberries for this recipe?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks for the recipe. I just made this, and it's delicious.
    I used frozen whole or halved strawberries, chopped them up a bit, and cooked them with the sugar and flour till they thickened. I just wanted to ensure that they weren't too runny. Worked Great!
    Thanks! :-)

  26. Could I use corn starch instead of flour? I'm making a gluten free pie for my family with a rice flour crust.
