A seasonal favorite!

This fresh, seasonal pie is extremely easy to make. With the exception of the graham cracker crust (which only cooks for seven minutes) this pie is bake-free, which means it's almost as quick to make as it is simple. Let the strawberries macerate for at least an hour so that the flavors mingle together and start to form a sauce.

Ingredients

  • 20 graham crackers (your favorite brand)
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3/4 Cups sugar, divided into quarter cups
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, stemmed and sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 Teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 Cups heavy cream

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degress. 

Meanwhile, add the graham crackers to a food processor and pulse until finely ground. While the processor is on, slowly add in the butter, ¼ cup sugar, and cinnamon until fully combined. Press the cracker mixture evenly into a round baking dish, making sure to include the sides of the dish. Bake the crust for 7 minutes.

Combine the strawberries, lemon juice, ¼ cup sugar, and cornstarch, let them sit together at room temperature for at least 1 hour. 

When you're ready to assemble the pie, whip the cream with the remaining ¼ cup sugar and spoon it evenly onto the pie crust, then top with the strawberries. Serve immediately. 

Strawberry Pie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Strawberry Pie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
