Ever since I was a little girl, my mom would make the simplest and easiest strawberry pie recipe. It's so easy and requires hardly any ingredients. When Dan and I were first married and lived in California, we'd go to Marie Callender's and get a strawberry pie every so often. It reminded me of Mom's. Well, we picked strawberries at McGarrah Farms last weekend, so now I'm going to share the pie recipe with you. Quick-and-Easy-Strawberry-PieBelow you'll find a printable recipe, without photos, for your convenience.

Basically, you need 3 ingredients…. a pie crust, strawberries, and sugar. Maybe a little whipped topping too if you like. Start by letting your strawberries soak in a vinegar/water bath for about 10 minutes.Wash-strawberries-for-pie While they're soaking, you can mix up your pie crust, and then separate it into 2 parts. I used a pie crust recipe from Taste of Home for our pie, though I do like to add a teaspoon or so of sugar. Roll out the first crust to desired thickness.

  1. Looks yummy! I am SO NOT a creative cook! I was better when I was younger. I think even I could handle this one … although I confess … I would buy a Pillsbury Ready Crust! =) Do strawberries not retain a lot of water when you soak them? For some reason I thought they were (like mushrooms) little sponges that aren’t supposed to be soaked? But like I said … NOT an expert!

    Where is that strawberry farm? Not that my knees are up for berry picking! I’ll probably continue to get mine from Sams!

    • Thanks so much, Beth! Oh it’d be great with a Pillsbury crust!:) In fact, I think I’ve used those in the past for this. The berries don’t seem to retain the water, they still taste really good. It helps getting all the yuck stuff off and cleans them well. McGarrah Farms is in Pea Ridge, AR, just a hop and a skip away from where we live in Rogers.
