A sweet treat for Valentine’s Day

Aren’t you loving all these colorful, ripe and sweet berries at our local farmers’ markets and grocery stores?

 I recently made this fresh strawberry pie for the first time and it was so EASY and so delish! It is especially fast if you use a store bought crust, or bake your own.

This is seriously such a great treat for Valentine’s Day!

Fresh Strawberry Pie Filling

(Here’s what I used for this pie) and go to Cooks Illustrated for the full directions. They used twice as much strawberries and I didn’t have any lemons.)

  • 2 pints strawberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of Sure-Gel (Pectin)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • top with whip cream
  • Bake and cool store bought pie crust before you pour filling

Happy pie making!
