American like Strawberry Pie

I made a strawberry pie last night and it magically made our Wednesday top notch. It was sooooo dang good. I combined two recipes and kind of made up my own in the process, using things I had on hand. Jeremy proclaimed it to be the best pie I've made. And y'all. I've made a lot of pies. So, here's the scoop.

2 1/2 c. flour
2 sticks of butter, cubed
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. ice cold water (to start with, I ended up using about 1/2 c.)

* I used this recipe, doubled it and just pressed it into my pan. No time to roll that sucker last night.

4-5 c. fresh strawberries 
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp flour
dash of cinnamon (I actually added a dash of pumpkin pie spice, but don't tell anyone)

I combined the chopped strawberries, sugar, cinnamon and butter in pan over medium heat until butter melted. Then I added a couple tablespoons of flour and poured into my unbaked crust. Cooked on 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. 

So. Stinking. Good.
And if you want a recipe to follow exactly- this one looks good.


  1. This looks delicious!!! I think I'll make this tomorrow!!!

    1. It was so tasty! I hope yours turns out great. I really liked this crust too, it was flaky and delicious!!

  2. Ok. Made it last night and me and Justin ate almost half the pan (I doubled the recipe, too!!!) in bed. Lol! Now I'm eating a warmed up slice with my coffee this morning. The BEST strawberry pie ever. Even better than my grandmas! Shhh. Don't tell.
