The best way to show off red, ripe strawberries is in a decadent pie. Bake a pie shell the easiest way--with refrigerated pie crust--and pile it high with the best berries. If you're looking for easy strawberry pie recipes, you've found them.
Three steps to a strawberry pie (you won't believe how easy this is)
Bake it. Place a Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust in a pie plate and bake as directed for a one-crust pie shell.
Stir it. Gently stir berries into a purchased strawberry pie glaze.
Enjoy it. Add berry mixture to the pie shell, chill and serve, topped with whipped cream. That's it!
Check out the recipes below... lots of irresistible choices.
Start with the pie crust. Baking the pie shell for a fresh strawberry pie couldn't be easier. Just follow the directions on a Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust package--that's easy. The only thing that would make it better would be to add a secret layer to the crust...fudge or almond paste.
Strawberry pie filling. From a super-easy strawberry glaze to a layered masterpiece, strawberry pies are anything but ordinary. The berries stand out in a chocolate cream, with blueberries and raspberries, in little tarts or in an indulgent cream cheese pie. If you've got a pie shell and strawberries, you've got a delicious decision to make.
Strawberry pies with a twist: Add strawberries to a pie and it goes from good to great.
Top strawberry pie recipes. All easy. All delicious.
Five easy tips to get you started:
Soften the crust. Take the pie crust out of the refrigerator to soften before you use it, as directed on the package.
Don’t stretch it. Try not to stretch the pie crust when you put it in the pan.
Use glass or dull-metal pans. Shiny pans keep refrigerated pie crusts from getting brown, and dark pans cause too much browning.
Use the size pan called for in a recipe. Refrigerated pie crusts are designed for 8- or 9-inch pie pans and 10-inch tart pans.
