When I was growing up, my mom used to make the best strawberry pie in the spring and summer. Now, I haven’t been blessed with a great memory, but I do remember helping her make these pies. If I remember something, it must have been meaningful to me. There is something about cooking with my mom that brings back several great memories from when I was growing up.
These strawberry pies are delicious, and they get eaten very quickly. It got to where she had to make two because we would eat them so fast. You better get a piece before it’s gone!
When I got married and had children, I carried on the tradition of making strawberry pie for my family too.
They are such a big deal in my house that there may or may not have been some arguments over who ate all the pie. I mean, this is serious business around here folks! In fact, when preparing to share this recipe, I considered making an extra and finding a way to ship it to my oldest daughter. She is going to be mad that I made it without her here!
These are great to let your kids help with!
You only need four ingredients. Pie shells, strawberries, glaze, and Coolwhip.
Summer Strawberry Pie
- 1 pack of Strawberries
- 1 package Strawberry Glaze
- 1 frozen pie crust
- Cool Whip optional
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Prick the pie crust with a fork. All over.
- Follow instructions on pie crust package to cook an empty pie shell.
- Let cool.
- Cut the tops off all strawberries, then cut in half or fourths, depending on the size of the berry.
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine strawberries and glaze, mix well.
- Pour the mix into the cooled pie shell.
- Serve or refrigerate for later.
These pies are so easy to make and they are very kid friendly. (Unless you have a son like mine who has a very limited diet, but that is a story for another time) They are also great for the summer time, because they are served cold. You only have to turn your oven on for about 20 minutes, so it shouldn’t make the house too hot either.
I hope your family enjoys them as much as ours does!
