How to Make Strawberry Pie

March 14, 2021 Hanny No Comments

For the first time ever, I’ve made a strawberry pie and I am so excited on how it came out! I looked through about 50 recipes, but none of them called to me, so I did what I usually do and combined two different recipes to make my own.

Now, I absolutely love strawberries, so the way I made my pie was with half strawberries and a strawberry sauce.

How to Make Strawberry Pie

Making a strawberry pie from scratch took some time, but the end result was absolutely delicious. For the top of the pie, I decided to make a lattice design, but you can make the top anyway you’d like.

Make the pie crust from scratch

You can buy one if you aren’t confident enough to make your own crust, but making the pie crust from scratch will make this pie even more natural and it also has less sugar than those that you buy in stores.

When I make pies, I usually make the crust such as the one I used in for my pumpkin pie.

Fill the crust with filling

Once you have followed the instructions to make the crust and froze it, you will need to put it in the oven for a few minutes so the bottom bakes. As soon as it’s baked, put in the strawberry filling and cover it with the pie top.

Egg wash

When you cover the pie, make sure to add the egg wash on top. This will give you a golden-brown shiny crust.

Protect the outer crust

Crusts can easily burn if they are not protected. This is why you should use a pie crust shield or foil.
