Strawberry Pie

Strawberry Pie

by Amy Flanigan on May 19, 2014 · 41 comments

There are a few certainties for me every single day.

I will eat something delicious, someone will make me laugh out loud, Paul will pinch my bottom, Haley will absolutely blow me a kiss before bedtime, Trevor will tell me he loves me…and rest assured, he will also ask for strawberries. 

Strawberries. They can’t grow fast enough. And I can’t buy enough of them. We go through them like breathing.

So when OXO asked if I wanted to test out their new huller (which is awesome, btw. Perhaps one of the most useful and effective tools, ever!)…

OXO Strawberry Huller

and receive a flat of Driscoll’s berries…

Strawberries

… I laughed. Joyously, of course. Um, ya, I want to be a part of it!

I made pie. Shocker, I know. I had a lot left over, though, so I also made lemonade, smoothies, and some more Chia Seed Pudding.

Okay, but back to this pie. It’s so freaking good.

Strawberry Pie

You can serve it warm or cold, but it turns into more of a crisp or crumble if you don’t allow it to chill before slicing. Your choice. Goodness knows, I’ve succumbed to not waiting before.

These are all the OXO tools I used to make my pie a reality:

Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls
Strawberry Huller
3-Piece Berry Bowl
Dough Blender
Pastry Knife
Pie Server

Strawberry Pie
Serves 8
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 90 minutes

Ingredients
• 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
• 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
• 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1/8 teaspoon of salt
• 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
• 6 cups fresh strawberries, quartered
• 1 cup sugar
• 4 tablespoons cornstarch
• 1/8 teaspoon salt
• 1 (9-inch) prepared pie crust

Directions
For the crumble topping – in a medium bowl, mix the flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Work in the butter with a pastry blender, until large moist clumps form. Cover and chill until ready to use.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees with rack in middle. In a large bowl, toss strawberries with sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Pour into pie shell; sprinkle with crumble topping. Place pie on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet.

Bake until topping is browned and crust is lightly browned, about 1 1/2 hours. (If topping or crust begins to brown too quickly, cover with foil.) Cool completely and place in the refrigerator for several hours to set.

OXO makes the coolest freakin kitchen tools EVER. They are amazing. ALMOST as amazing as you! :)
This pie has me drooling at my desk. Honestly. It looks so juicy and delicious. I can’t wait for summertime pies. And ice cream. Also, I love the crumble topping!

This piece looks AMAZING!!! Do you think this would work with frozen strawberries? I have organic ones that I froze after last summer.

Amy @Very Culinary May 23, 2014 at 7:22 am

Hi Suzette – using frozen berries is perfectly fine! But they need to be quartered, not whole… not sure if you cut them before freezing? If not, you’ll need to defrost them.

Seriously, having a flat of strawberries in my fridge was like HEAVEN. We probably could have consumed TWO flats, no problem.

Of course you made pie! And yes, our pies should so be best friends.

What a glorious pie. I can see why you were so willing to say yes to the offer. Our strawberry farm is producing so I just may have to go out and buy a bucket or two.

Have you ever tried this recipe substituting tapioca for the corn starch. I have used it in many berry pie recipes and just wondered if it would work with this one.

Amy @Very Culinary May 20, 2014 at 5:48 am

Hi Cherri – no, I’ve never used tapioca. But I have used Clearjel, which helps it hold together even better than cornstarch. Have you ever heard of that? It’s used a lot in fruit pies… not sure if you can purchase it at the store, but it is available online.

A huller and a flat of strawberries? Totally meant to be. I wish I had that kind of luck — your pie looks incredible! Any chance there’s still a slice left for me? ;)

Strawberries go quickly in my house too. As a matter of fact, I’ve never been able to make any sort of baked good w/ strawberries because when I go to grab them, they’re gone! I even bought double the amount last week, didn’t matter…gone. This pie looks so good, I might have to hide them in my fridge, so I can make this.

I normally don’t care for strawberries except for strawberry shortcake, but I think I’d like this with the crumble topping.

Thanks for a chance at the giveaway, Amy.

I want to make that pie. For real. But I don’t even know what a pastry blender is, let alone think one resides in my kitchen. I could make do without…but I need that strawberry huller!

Amy @Very Culinary May 19, 2014 at 8:23 pm

Tell your mom to make it for you! Surely someone in your family must bake! <3

True. You got that right!

Lana @ Never Enough Thyme May 19, 2014 at 10:18 am

There’s just not much better than a strawberry pie, is there? One made with perfectly ripe, fresh strawberries and a flaky, buttery crust is just about perfection. Yum.
